My friend is looking to buy a Hardtail trail bike on the Cycle to Work scheme. Max budget is the £1k C2W limit (or slightly less if possible). I suspect it’s one where you get the voucher for use at participating bike shops.
He has been looking at an on-one or a Sonder currently. Both NX 11sp and Recon builds.
I thought I would ask the great STW hive mind and knower of all what the best value and riding trail bike for a grand is. Or a fuss sus if there is anything worth buying that cheap.
Left-field choice, but I picked up one of these for £800 a few weeks ago, down from £1300 then ctw discount on top of that – can’t really go wrong at that price & first few rides have been encouraging, the 2.8″ tyres provide an amazing amount of grip & comfort.
Bear in mind Alpkit pass the scheme fees on to you, cyclescheme is a 15% additional cost. Means it’s basically not worth doing with them unless you are a higher rate tax payer (although this being stw).
...and we need you to agree to it before continuing on to our website.
