    Best Bike of the 2

    I have not bought a decent mountain bike before, my raleigh is falling apart and I need a new bike. I decided to spend about 200 on a bike that will let me go out on a trail but still be a good bike to travel to uni on. I realised that 200 won't really get you anything decent, but i'm short on cash (students eh) and need to choose a bike between 200 and 250 max.

    I have found these two bikes, which are pretty much the only "brand name" bikes within my price range, could you tell me which is best as I am a novice:
    http://www.cyclexpress.co.uk/product...00607_2820.asp
    http://www.cyclexpress.co.uk/products/Pagan_2940.asp

    OR if there are other bikes suitable for me you could suggest that would be great. I am from the UK so any suggeted bike would need to be able to be shipped within the UK.

    Thanks ALOT

    hey,
    out of the two links u gave there i would get the rincon, its got rockshox fork, and the other one has disks, but its better to go with V brakes than cheap mechanical disks!
    i suggest you look at higher end bikes from last year!!! you get a better bike for the same just because its the 05 model!!!
    good luck

    Yeah thats what I have looked for- high end 05 bikes, but having trouble finding websites with them on, and I think some high end 05 bikes were still around 300. Thanks for the help.
