I've got up to £320 to spend and I've got my eye on these 4 hardtail bikes:

Sloope CTX 3.6 (29") https://www.evanscycles.com/sloope-ctx- ... e-EV290338

BTwin rockrider 520 (27.5") http://www.decathlon.co.uk/rockrider-52 ... 60662.html

BTwin rockrider 540 (27.5") http://www.decathlon.co.uk/rockrider-54 ... 50583.html

Carrera Vulcan 2015 (27.5") http://www.halfords.com/cycling/bikes/m ... -bike-2015

I was looking to get the Sloope but cant find any info on Sloope bikes on the forum. I also gathered that the rockriders are good value. Someone please give advices on which is best value for money.

    The slope is poor, poor drivetrain and some of the worst forks around, the Vulcan is much better but the RR 540 is head and shoulder better.

    Listen to Rookie, he's normally right.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
