Hi!

Looking for any bike up to 1000 pounds. Usually Im biking in forest, small mountains etc. Not really really big jumps etc.

I would like to have bike for future - I mean bike which I can rebuild / exchange for better parts in the future etc.

I have one favourite in these 3 bikes, I just wonder what can you recommend me.

I'll be grateful for help

Not what I would call an XC bike myself - but the Bossnut would be my choice of those three.

Don't jump straight in though, keep looking. There are plenty of hardcore hardtails out there for that price range, if you don't want full suspension.

Have a look on sites like Chain Reaction Cycles

There are some really good clearance XC bikes on there at the moment

Out of those three, I'd go for the Trek .. but tbh, if I had a G burning a hole, I'd be taking a look at the carbon 29er Superfly in the for sale section on here Wink
