I’m a total novice to buying bikes. Would appreciate a bit of help.
I’m looking to buy a mountain bike (adult male, 6ft tall). It’ll only be used appx 20 times a year, during the summer. I usually cycle at Rutland Park during these months and rent bikes from there £22.50 a pop. But if I had my own bike I’d cycle more frequently at a local mountain biking spot. But again, I’d only probably use it 20-30 times a year maximum. I don’t need a bike as part of my daily commute.
The bike I hire from Rutland seems ok enough, they sell the ex-hire for appx £300 which is out of my budget. I’m looking at a used bike between £150-£230’ish. Can anyone offer any advice please? As mentioned, I don’t mind buying used off ebay but would appreciate a steer in the right direction please.
