That looks amazing value! The parts new would cost a LOT more than that.

    Your not wrong, tempted to get for youngest lad and hide the logo and swap the saddle. Save me building frame up using my old Carrera Fury.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Even just for the components that's good value.

    Presumable Ms Trott is not a 'moutain biker'

    "Laura Trott MTB 1 Womens Moutain Bike"

    Better value by a margin, how it rides I don't know, but at that price you could buy a decent frame with the geo you want and use it as a full component source!

  • Ok cheers. Looking for a starter mtb for my wife, so we can do some easy trails together with the little 'un. Was thinking the bizango as it gets good reviews, but not sure about a 29er for her.

    Boardman wasn't a mountain biker but Boardman bikes are pretty good. Probably because he has nothing to do with Boardman bikes other than selling his name to them.

    I missed that. Maybe moutain biking is the next big sport in cycling.

    Maybe this is Laura Trott? Using a sneaky pseudonym.

    I guess it's better than the more common 'mounting bike' see a lot of those for sale.
