Hi, I'm looking at getting a semi decent mountain bike under £250. Mainly to ride to and from work.

I read on this site the Saracen TUfftrax gets a good review.

Whilst shopping around I found the above the site that is selling the Comp version of the bike for a couple of notes extra.

Has anyone used this site before?
Is the Comp version of the bike worth the extra?

Many thanks for any advice.

Ian.

    For an extra fiver, yes.

    For the fiver you get a better fork with more travel, and an extra cog on the cassette with a wider set of ratios, so I'd say the comp is a no-brainer. MBUK thought highly enough of the standard bike I remember so for 230 notes you should be getting a nice ride.

    As for irvine Cycles, never used them, and havent heard about them, good or bad. What I'd do is try ringing the shop to ask a little about it. If they know their stuff and seem helpful, then youre probably good to go, if not then be a little more cautious perhaps.
