    Budget?

    Most Lardrocks are overpriced tat.

    Around £400. I'm not expecting anything special, commute around 11 miles each way.

    For a commuter a Voodoo Marasa is a good buy, 29 inch wheels (700c) hydrualic discs but rigid forks (lighter weight), for a more off road capable MTB the Voodoo Bantu is a good bet, both from Halfords. And for the money they are fairly special. The other option is the Rockrider 5.3 from Decathlon/

    The forks and drivetrain on that bike belong on a £250 one, not a £400 one.
