I notice quite a lot of cyclists/MB enthusiasts post on HUKD so I thought this might be a good place to ask for some advice.

I'm looking for a mountain bike (and helmet) within a budget of £200, i'll be mainly using it on the roads, but would also like to use it for the occassional light trails and dirt tracks, nothing extreme.

I'm more interested in value for money over style, so last season's bike's (or earlier) are fine.

I looked for a bike a few years back and remember being recommended Giant and Schwinn as decent kit in this price range, is this still the case?

if you using it mostly on the roasd then buy a hybrid :thumbsup:

I thought about hybrids, but would'nt want to limit myself to missing out on a good deal on a hardtail.

Is having a set of road tyres and a seperate set of hybrid/off road tyres a realistic option?

for what your describing a hybrid would be perfect for you. why would you need a hardtail on roads or light trails?

A hybrid probably would be perfect, but as above, I would'nt want to miss out on a great deal by focussing only on them. From what i've seen on various sites selling bikes, hybrids make up quite a small percentage of their stock.

Halfords always seem to have good offers on.

You won't get a good one from halfords for £200 no way. the only decent bikes they sell are the G.T. ones and a few of the Kona ones. The Apollo ones are made with terrible frames and terrible parts.

Yeah, Halfords would be my last port of call to be honest. I've been to a local trader who seemed to give genuine advice (either a Hybrid or Hardtail would suit my needs) rather than try to steer me towards the bikes he had in his shop (though I did take a look), and i'd rather go back to him (and even pay a little more) than go to Halfords.

I'm really just looking out for any good deals that might be out there.
