Hey guys,

I have an office job and after sitting around all day the kilos are starting to pile on, I am looking into getting a little more fit and start riding to and from work and i wan't a decent bike, I have been looking at some specialized, Muddyfox and Cannondale classified ads sites but i can not pic between them. They are all around the same price range and all have pretty much the same specs so what i want to know from everyone here is personal experiences with the bikes to help me pick which one i should go for????

Example pictures below

    They have near enough the same specs? Despite the Muddyfox being hardtail, v-brakes, crappy steel forks, very low end drivetrain etc, it is nothing like the same spec and I doubt sells for anywhere near the price!

  • Well that is the Muddyfox out of mu options then when it comes to the other two what your saying is it doesn't matter it is more of a personal thing

    Cannondale make a range of bikes. I think what The Rookie is saying is that if the MF is withing your budget, neither of those Cannondales will be. So you are presumably looking at either a very low end model or a totally trashed bike.

    Or an extremely expensive Muddy Fox

    When you say riding to work, do you mean on roads? If so, non of these are really what you are after.

    If you plan is to ride off road trails and maybe advance to trail centres etc, then a mtb may be what you are after. Post specs (or links) to the actual bikes you are looking at and describe your intended use in more detail and you will get great advice here.

    Indeed, the Trigger is a circa £2000 bike, the MF a circa £200 bike!
