Hi all!

New Member and my first post, so I'm looking to get a new bike my budget is £2.3k.

My current bike is a Trek Hardtail (cant member the model) its nothing special, as stated above i'm looking for a new bike, can you suggest the best Hardtail and FS for my budget? (preferably UK based sites)

I'm 6'4" and due to covid currently a thicc boy so a bigger bike will be needed.

Also can can you recommend the best websites for everything MTB, bikes and parts, etc.

    Look on YouTube for best bike reviews on bikes in your price range.

    Chain Reaction Cycles and Wiggle sell all things bike related but not necessarily at the cheapest prices.

    2nd that but first try and work out what kind of riding you want to do there are so many options.

    As mentioned above, you need to consider where you will be mainly riding and determine the type of bike you need. A heavy, 150mm trail bike won't be very good for all-day xc rides and similarly a light weight xc whippet will be no good for smashing down black graded trails.
