    First suggestion would be to check out the what hardtail and what full suspension threads at the top of this forum, should give you some idea of what people round here think is good.

    Are you looking for full suspension (perhaps a little dodgy at the £500 mark) or hardtail? What type of riding are you looking at? General off-road trail riding, whippet-like XC or something different?

    Just taking a wild guess, take a look at the Kona Blast Deluxe and see if you can get a discounted '08 model.

    Yeah, this is discount time. The Carrera Fury would be great otherwise but you should be able to get a better bike with a price slash for the same.
