Off to Aussie for the winter, and interested in moving on from my current Marin Muirwoods touring bike to a more dedicated mountain bike for dirt track bikepacking etc.

I hear good things about the Voodoo Bizango - however, it has that through axle front suspension which if I were to break the front wheel, would make it difficult to get a replacement quickly. Also, 10 speed is more of a niche right now - so figure getting parts for the 9 speed system on the Hoodoo would be easier.

Are there any bikes that I should also be looking at?

Many thanks

This is the description on the Halfords website;

The VooDoo Hoodoo Mountain Bike is certainly capable of some black magic on the trails. Big brother to the Bantu, the Hoodoo kicks it up a gear with its superb trail-tackling ability; from its 7005 aluminium frame through to its 27.5" wheels, the Hoodoo knows what a trail riding thrillseeker wants. A Suntour Raidon coil fork provides 120mm of travel, soaking up the bumps to keep your steering accurate. A wide range of gear ratios is given by the 27 speed Shimano Alivio gearset, making ascents and descents easy to tackle. Finished off with powerful Shimano Acera hydraulic disc brakes, it's clear that the Hoodoo is made for one thing and one thing only: fun.

Frame: Lightweight double butted aluminium
Forks: Suntour Radion 120mm forks with adjustable rebound dampening for great control on the trail
Gears: Shimano Altus 27 speed gears will give you a great range
Brakes: Shimano hydraulic brakes for fast and efficient stopping
Wheels: 27.5" double wall VooDoo wheels with Maxxis Ardent tyres for strength
