Hi guys,

get up to £1000 to spend on a new bike, being a 40% tax payer it's really worthwhile me doing this.

Got a Whyte 901 hardtail in the garage and fancy a full sus.

Got these three to choose from:
http://www.halfords.com/cycling/bikes/mountain-bikes/voodoo-zobop-full -suspension-mountain-bike

http://www.halfords.com/cycling/bikes/mountain-bikes/boardman-mountain -bike-team-full-suspension-27-5

http://www.halfords.com/cycling/bikes/mountain-bikes/diamondback-missi on-enduro-full-suspension-mountain-bike-26-15

Any help much advised!

Unless you're a midget the Diamondback is out as it's only in a 15" frame. It's also on 26" wheels.
With the other two, Sram or Shimano components seem to be the deciding factor. You'd want to get to a Hellfrauds and try them for fit before making any kind of decision.

Does it have to be Halfords? There's deals galore out there at this time of year. You can pay any extra to get a bike over £1000 if you want to.

this years Boardman Team FS is a belter for the price!

Unfortunately - Halfords is a must as it's something the company has set up directly with them Sad

Boardman looks like a winner at a total of £551

Cheers

Voodoo Zebop looks a crackin bike for the money, as does the Boardman.
Both get 9/10 on MBR website too.

On that, the LBS has said that Cyclescheme is now up to £4k! Very Happy
