Hi I've been riding now for about 6 months now quite seriously. I'm 14 and I ride a Shougun Gatecrasher 200. About my Shougun, it cost £250, its a hard tail with a good front fork, Shamino tourney 21 speed, Shamino front disc brake and rear V-brake. For this christmas I am getting a GT Aggressor Elite from my local Halfords shop, the reason for this is the Shougun of mine is just not good enough for me. The GT Aggressor Elite costs £850 and is another hard tail. The GT Aggressor Elite has Hydrolic Disc brakes and 27 speed Sram X-7 and X-9 and has a Rock-Shok as its fork with 85-135mm of travel. I do riding in any weather and all terrain and just looking to pick up on some tips. Post here if you have any comments about bikes for me what riding I should do as I am eager to learn.
