- £200 hardtail – is it possible?
how about this (slightly over budget)Posted 10 years ago
brand new, no chance
second hand yeah,
bought a older circa 2002 hardrock with complete upgrades, off the classifieds, for a friend
rs sids xt/lx drivetrain, avid v’s
very light immaculate condition £220
recently got a old gt frame setup for SS
everything but wheels, chain and cog.
£85 again classified
changing the forks
so reckon the build would come to £150
just need to look on the classifiedsPosted 10 years agotinribzMember
I’ve been looking at this price range lately for my kids and this was one that looked good value:
2008 commencal normal
£224.96 – 27.9lbs. V Brakes but disc ready hubs.
There is a 2009 one too not much more.
Decent ‘looking’ forks~Posted 10 years agogiddyrobMember
tell your mate to stop being sooooooooo tight! The amount of money he will need to spend to fix the bits falling off means he would be spending more anyway.
Find somewhere to rent and go to the trails. He will know if he wants to continue and invest in a real bike, not some rubbish for going to the shops.
You could get him to get a bike from amazon for £100 and send him to fort william! Just make sure you get it on tape though! Jeremy Beadle would give a little thumb up for the footage if he was still here!
