dont worry about price, it can be £5000 if you want, im just thinking about pure VFM, only RRp's please, and no old deals, 09 and '010 bike only.....


im gonna vote for Boardman pro FS (or is it team? its the £1300 one....)

or GT Agressor Elite

or Carrera fury.


Worryingly these are all Halfrauds bikes :?
I like bikes and stuff

    WHAT? Why you only interested in RRP? That is just plain daft because RRP should actually be the highest price in a perfect consumer world. i.e. Specialized is illegally price fixed to RRP. Best VFM comes from the best available price re correct competition and not illegal practices.

    Rock Lobster 853, Trek 1200 and a very old, tired and loved Apollo Javelin.

    Gotta say this looks good:

    It still amazes me how they can but a bike together for that much. When you look at all the individual pieces. For the same price as a Fox float, or a Pace HT frame.
