    the dimondback sortie 1 2013 which is totally over £1200 but can get one for £565 in a sale. Diamondback - SORTIE

    or the Commencal El Camino S Suspension which is normally £1250 but can get for £729 in the sale. Commencal El Camino S Suspension - Cosmetic Damage 2013 | Chain Reaction Cycles

    Not to parrot the opinion of many here, but consensus is that FS is not worth it at this price range. You're going to be paying a premium to get a substandard, flexy, bobby rear suspension at the expense of two finger tektro brakes, clunky steel spring forks, and heavier, spongy wheels. Check out hardtails in the same price range and i think you'll find better component packages which will ride better.
