I'm new to this forum and indeed new to the world of bikes, i've not bought one for around 10 years.
I've been looking around and what i'd like is a mountain bike that has disk breaks for my commute to work.
I don't want to pay stupid amounts of money for one bike that a cheaper bike can give me.

I have three ideas at this time, listed as most preferable first:
Voodoo Bantu
Carrera Vulcan
Carrera Vengeance

What i would like to know is if these bikes are any good? I've heard things about the breaks squealing terribly and or leaking.
I would like a reliable bike that will carry me to work and home again every day. If what i have chosen above isn't ideal, please do suggest other options.
I would like to be able to purchase the bike from Halfords as there is one in the town i live and would be easy for me to go back there if needed.

I know i'm clueless when it comes to this, please have patience with me.
All help is much appreciated and i hope i'm not asking stupid questions.

Thank you.
