HI All...

I am just about to get my first proper MTB but not sure on what to get I have a short list, but would like your thoughts and suggestions.... My budget it is £300 -n £500.... Here's the ones I have been looking at..

Trek 4300 Hardtail

But open to your suggestions as well...

    For £500 the normal recommendation is the Rockrider 8.1 from Decathlon, there are also the Voodoo and Carrera Fury at Halfords which while not quite as good value are still good bikes.

    the Lardrock is horrid, forget that, the Trek isn't much better, the Cube

    For a bit less Money the latest Carrera Vulcan is a lot of bike for the money (Hydraulic disk brakes for example) and much better than any of those three.

    Current steed - Whyte T129, 2013 frame, mongrel Revelations, Giant dropper, Stans S1 wheelset. 12, Magura Trail Sport brakes, 1x11. 12.8Kg
