I'm just setting out in mountain biking and as such am starting from scratch I.e buying my first bike in years... I'm after a bit of advice and I'd be so grateful if you guys could help out, my budget is pretty low (£300) and I'm looking to buy a half decent bike to get me started mainly road use but occasionally on tow paths and fire roads to see how I get on for now .. I've got a couple of bikes that I'm looking at but my judgment is limited to what looks nice lol could somebody please point me in the direction of what's best for my budget? I'm looking at Saracen tufftrax 2014, Merida matts 10v, Gt aggressor 3.0, diamondback overdrive 2013, Dawes xc21 , felt six 95 2014 or giant revel 4? There's a couple of ridgeback ones and the Claud butler trail ridge 1.3 in the price range also. A lot of reviews seem to point to the tufftrax but I'm open to advice and opinions which I'd be grateful for .
