So our cycle to work scheme is going live next month and its the usual £1000 limit and going through Halfords and I'll be getting a hardtail mountain bike.
I haven't bought a mountain bike for a long time and have no real idea what my options are for that sort of money, apart from googling 'best £1k hardtail'.
So far I have the following bikes on the possible list - Boardman HT Pro and Cube Ltd Race or Pro.
What else should I be looking at. I don't do 'gnar' and fancy something fast and light.
And can you still top up the value through the halfords scheme? One bike I've looked at is £50 over budget.
