Trying to recommend a complete bike for £500-800 to a friend.
This will be his first MTB but whether or not I/you think he should spend this much he probably will.
So with that in mind any recommendations for around this budget. I think it needs to be something suited to trail centres and mtb in S. Wales.
I'd say a 100mm or more fork and not too racy.
He's a big fella at about 6'4" so needs to be availible in a good range of sizes.
Ability to purchase on cycle to work scheme not essential but would be good.
Your suggestions please!
