    Choosing new hardtail

    Can you recommend me a good hardtail that will be sturdy enough for trails and practical enough for road use. My budget is 900 euros.

    Need input...

    budget for one thing, preferences and compromises, riding style, etc...
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Frame or complete bike?
    Bicycles donít have motors or batteries.

    Ebikes are not bicycles

    Ok so a complete hardtail bike. I will be riding on the streets and some trails. It has to be sturdy for the trails but also perform well on the road. The budget is 900 euro.

    A good mountain bike is a shit road bike, and vice versa. I'd go with a nukeproof scout and a cheapo road bike.

    Mabey look at the Ragley Marley 27.5
    I've had that bike and used it from park to 50km xc/trail'ish trips and it was super. Mine was a custom build tho but reviewers give the complete bike VERY good reviews.

    Sounds like a high end hybrid would be a good choice. What youíre asking for wonít be great at either.

    Assuming you're in Europe, check out the Nukeproof Scout. Thats a sweet ride for the money!
