I know it's a challenge, but I am seriously getting into mtb'ing in a big way and I need to step up from my Giant Boulder (Hardtail, V-brakes!!) to something more capable. Not to say I haven't thrown my trusty steed off anything and everything, but I could do with some decent disc brakes and some more useful suspension to help my enjoyment / nerves / coccyx!!
I am a big bugger, so will need a 19 - 20 inch frame and I have a testing budget of just £500.
I am currently trawling eBay, Pinkbike and this forum for options, but any offers from you guys would be greatly received.
