Hi all,

Going to Cycle surgery tomorrow to go look at some bikes that I can get on the Cycle to work scheme. This will be my first MTB since I was 15 (23 now!).

There are a few options that I have seen that i like below. I doubt that they will have them all in stock in my size, but wanted to get people's view on them.

Obviously I will give them a go, but from a specs point of view is there anyone of these that is heads and shoulders above the rest?

Thanks for any help you guys are able to provide.

Looking forward to starting to ride again! Now just to find some local routes!

    Shame they don't have a Cube Ltd Pro in stock @ £949 it's very hard to beat for value for money. The Reba fork on it blows the forks on the bikes you've listed out of the water in performance & weight terms.

    I do know of a shop that has them in stock, but it's not local to you, but does offer free delivery & does deal with most cycleschemes.

    Most shops don't do cyclescheme on discounted bikes either as we lose a chunk in admin fees to the cycleschemes
