Hi all,

I've been looking into getting a mountain bike and i was looking at a budget of £500 but somehow it has grown to £700 as usual when you start looking your budget starts to grow. So anyway now that I've got a limit of but£700 just need some advice on which bike is the best bang for buck.

So this is the ones i was thinking of but if I'm missing one that beats any of these then please say.

First choice is

White 801

Next is

Revolution triad 1.0

This is on sale due to being last years model but I'm not too keen on the colour.

Specialized rockhopper comp

Boardman comp

Carrera fury

So as you can see its like a mine field to pick

    Slightly different bike but I'd try the Zero - for £700 on Ed Cycles.... £300ish of the 700 is the fork...

    That triad Zero is a very good call. I would recomment having a look at 2011 sale bikes in your price range as you will get much more bike for your money that if you buy 2012

    The Boardman Comp has a lot better spec than the other bikes you listed and lighter, or look for a 2011 bike i got a grand s worth of full suss gt sensor for £750 from my lbs.
