Hi, so as the title says im looking to buy a new bike. Not been into biking for a few years but im looking to get back into things. The 2 bikes ive been looking at are as follows:

B'TWIN ROCKRIDER 560 MOUNTAIN BIKE - http://www.decathlon.co.uk/rockrider-560-mountain-bike-id_8293151.html

Carrera Vengeance Mens Mountain Bike 2015 - http://www.halfords.com/cycling/bikes/mountain-bikes/carrera-vengeance-mens-mountain-bike-2015

From what I understand it looks like the B'TWIN is a better bike? (from what ive read etc)

Also, if you guys have better alternatives that would be appreciated. Other than that would the bikes above be a good starting bike for the prices they are at?

Thanks!

    The Rockrider is the best bike by a country mile, deore/SLX mix half decent forks, 10speed cassette and hydraulic brakes and lighter. Only downside is, actually can't think of any for the price.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    For that price the Rockrider is an absolute steal.

    Better fork, hydraulic brakes and a 10 spd drivetrain for less than £350 - amazing value
  • Got my eye on the Rockrider 560 too. £340.00 does seem a great price. Reasonably light as well at 12.9kg without peddles. Decisions decisions...
