Hi all,

First post, just getting into mountain bikes after years of not riding at all, my current bike is a Ridgeback MX2 Terrain from about 2009 - https://www.evanscycles.com/ridgebac...-bike-00125382

I've been watching loads of YouTube reviews on which bike i should go for, i'm looking to spend £500 ish.

I like the look of the Voodoo bikes and they get good reviews from what i can see

Voodoo Bizango 29er - http://www.halfords.com/cycling/bike...-mountain-bike

Voodoo Hoodoo - http://www.halfords.com/cycling/bike...-mountain-bike

Also like the look of the Vitus Nucleus 275 VR - http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/v.../rp-prod147646

I'm riding mainly on paths and tracks, with just a few minor off road rougher terrain tracks, but nothing that's too technical or challenging at the minute, but i will probably move onto something like that as my skill and confidence increases.

Now, the question is which do you think is my best option ?
I realise that the Bizango has 29" wheels on it, is this a good or no so good thing.

Cheers for any guidance

Phil
