Rolling Eyes Hi all looking for a bit of advice please, having recently got into MTB and loving a few rides out at Llandegella ( probably spelt wrong ! ) I am looking to buy a hard tail £750 budget, there is way too much choice and its confusing.

Any recommendations ? Love the look of the Cannondale Cujo 3 ?

I would also have a look at the Boardman HT and BTwin from Decathlon a friend has a BTwin full sus and it seems very good for the money.

This seems OK for the price and well under your budget.

Or 29er.

Spesh Rockhopper Expert.
GT Zaskar.
Scott Scale 760.

All within your price range and what I regard as bikes which have proper MTB pedigree.

Don't waste any calories looking round Retail Park bikes as while they might be adorned with a few nice little touches in the component department,it masks a very poorly made lifeless frame.

You can put a full XTR kit on,say,a Carrera.
But at the end of the day it's still a Carrera.

You get the picture Wink
