OK, so I've checked in and provided some background in the 'Noobs Check In'
Now for the Qs and to seek some much needed advice!
Looking for my 1st HT MTB for £500 or less - some say that'll be hard, some say it's a decent enough budget - I say I've been looking for 12-14 months now and I'm fed up of borrowing and hiring!
So, last year it was the Merida Matts Pro-D 2011 that I missed out on and this year it was the Giant Revel Ltd 0 2013, both I'm told were decent for £499! At 5'6" with a 29" inseam I need a Small (they go so quick!). Having said that, something just does not seem right about a 15" frame.... I would have thought 16.5" to 17.5" seems about right?
In my budget, seems I'm reliant on the sales or suppliers that will discount heavily on 2014 models.
My options at the moment are:
Giant Talon 27.5 '3' 2014 - £500 (rrp £625)
Talon 27.5 3 (2014) - Bikes | Giant Bicycles | International
Corratec X-Vert Motion 2013 - £449
Corratec X-Vert Motion 2013 | Chain Reaction Cycles
To be honest, I'm not completely hooked on either, but after a long search I just want to find something that's decent enough!
