I'm looking to get a hardtail and have a budget of up to £750

Preferably 26" :shock:

Suggestions please?

    Why 26"? Anyway, get looking at the Boardman range at Halfords, best value for money available at that price point.

    Why 29?

    I agree with Rookie. I picked up a Boardman ht 650b Comp on Saturday and its a cracking bike. Not 26" but its very good, I now prefer 650's after having nothing but 26" previously.

    I narrowed my choice down to either the Carrera Fury, Voodoo Hoodoo or the Boardman. Might have gone for the Fury if it hadn't been downgraded

    What sort of riding are you looking to do ?

    Some very good second hand bikes that are 26" in that price range. I would go by the bike rather than the wheel size unless you are very sure.

    +1 for the Boardman comp 650b picked one up monday from halfords they had a 10% off deal and got a further 10% off being a British cycling club member £526 all in ,great bike for the money .Not had chance to cane it yet on the trails but all the reviews look promising .Another to consider the Voodoo Hoodoo another great bike for the money again you can only get it from halfords ,I know there are a lot of halfords haters because of poor build up service but get either of those two bikes and get them built properley (mate /local bike shop) and you wont regret it,a lot of bike for the money.
