    Am looking for a s/h hardtail for my son and daughter to use for odd trips when back from Uni – local trails, blues and reds in BPW etc – a used Orange Crush is the obvious option (and I’m a bit of an Orange fan) but am open to suggestions.

    So – 130-150mm travel H/T, 27.5 or 29 – available used for >£800 with a reasonable fork – Yari etc

    Pp oka for up to 140mm. Far better/nicer frame than a crush.

    What size do you need? A friend has a little used Bird Zero TR in M/L which would probably be in budget.

    You could get a 26″ Five in budget. Better trail centre bike than a hard tail for an occasional rider imo, especially at BPW

    Bagstard – sounds about right size wise – amy more info?

    Nickjb – sold my old 2009 26 Five for less – may be worth looking for a late 26er
