- Best value off the peg mountain bike?
Just been having a quick look on the interweb at new full builds, and there just seems to be a lot of very expensive bikes with average kit on them.Posted 4 years ago
The only exception being yt industry’s wicked.
So what else is out there worth a look for good value?
Any wheelsize, any price, as long as it will ride up, across, and downhills, and its good value for money.mikewsmithSubscriber
Depends what you like and what you want.
I want SRAM gripshift which means at least a shifter change and probably some mechs. Brakes all seem to be elixir on cheaper bikes which go on day 1 and generally bars are too narrow. So not much that is good value unless you can eBay take off parts well.Posted 4 years agogwj72Member
I’ve got a voodoo bizango 29er. For £600 I just can’t fault it (well I can the saddle is shite). MBR hardtail of the year and overall bike of the year so others must like it too.
Otherwise the rockrider above looks great in the flesh. As does the new boardman FS. The boardman 650b hardtail looks good value in comp trim too (£649).Posted 4 years agojohnnystormSubscriber
As mentioned above a bike you’ll ride is “best”. I had a Canyon with XT/XO/etc and sold it on after a short while. My similarly priced but deore equipped and acronym free Fargo has taken me all over the shop. Don’t buy something just because it has fancier parts.Posted 4 years ago
