Hi - haven't posted in a while as I have been spending a fair amount of time (and money but more on that in a moment!) on the darkside.
However, I am thinking of replacing my general hack v brake eqipped Commencal Normal (08 model) for something newer and have been offered a decent deal on the 2010 P1 All Mountain at a lbs.
It would be used for basic duties like riding along on the towpath to either a) the pub or b) the jump track - possibly both but not sure which is best first!
Family rides round pretty easy offroad trails.
Also, as a 'play' bike for local woods with a few bombholes and a bit of singletrack.
I appreciate it's spec has limitations but as a cheap purchase (£300)is it any good?
Price is very important given the road based spending over the past year!
If not - any sub-£500 alternatives?
