mountain bike under £500
im looking at buying a mountain bike, my budget's £500. Ive looked at a few bikes already including the giant revel 0.5/1 and the specialized hardrock disc 2013, just wondering if you guys know any other bikes I should take a look at?
Welcome to the Forum!
First off, do you want to buy new or used? What is your height and weight? What sort of riding do you think you will be doing most often? For 500 quid you should be able to pick up a decent entry level hardtail especially if it is last years model. You guys have a ton of great retailers in the UK.

Hardtail | Buy Now at ChainReactionCycles.com
Mountain Bikes | Merlin Cycles
Mountain Bike | Mens Mountain Bikes & Frames | Evans Cycles
If you want to ride off the bike paths the fork is the bikes most important component. Suntour X series forks are designed to stay on the bike paths. And both bikes you' have listed have this low level fork.
used on ebay.
eg something like this.
Giant Trance x4 Full Suspension Super Light 10 7kg | eBay
top tier used bike > bottom tier new bike imho.
