Hi all

After recently hiring a bike on a couple of occasions I have realised that really enjoy cycling. I am looking at buying a mountain bike but when looking at the specs it's like reading in a different language!

I am 6ft 3 and currently weigh 18.5 stone so want to lose weight and increase my fitness. I intend starting of slowly by cycling around local National Trust sites and flat cycle trails. I have between £500-700 to spend.

I think I have found a couple of suitable bikes, but was wondering if anyone could advise whether they are any good or whether there are any alternatives I should be considering.

I am looking at the:

Voodoo Bizango 29er

OR

Pinnacle Ramin 2

Would really appreciate any advice that can be offered. I appreciate this isn't a mega amount of money in bike terms but want to make sure I make the right decision.

Thanks in advance

Impala
