Good deal for a cracking bike!

I saw the pic of a full-suspension bike and my heart sank. Bit look! It's a proper one!

Before anyone starts moaning it's too much for a bike ("You could buy a car for that!"). If you can't justify £1000 for a bike you don't need full suspension. I can't and don't.

Great bike but too rich for my blood.
I'm after a bike for the wife upto £250/ £300 she's 5ft 4 any info or links would be much appreciated.

Mountain bike not downhill

I'd argue your point about being niche in the mountain biking world but you're right, it's not a 'Generalized' at least! Before I'd read much into the sport I went out and bought a Trek Fuel some years ago and man that thing weighed a ton for a short travel x country bike. Unlike other manufacturers Trek never quoted weights for their bikes their ads and after owning one I sure understood why.

Finally got rid of it when I managed to get hold of one of the last Horst link Turner 5 Spots which is more of an all mountain machine but more robust along with it.

I have a challenge for you, if you want niche, go buy a second hand frame and build it up yourself with NO shimano parts. When I built my Turner I managed it save for the cranks :(

For niche see Turner, Orange, Yeti etc

Good price though for an 'off the shelf' bike.

For anything half decent at that price youd have to buy second hand and probably rigid or hard tail.

Join Singletrackworld.com forum and scan the classifieds.

no shimano parts is easily solved...but it will get bloody expensive.

Depends what she plans to use it for.

If its general riding (no hard core stuff) you should be able to pick up a cracking second hand deal for well within your budget.

I recently bought my wife (who is strictly a "track riding with the kids" type of person) a second hand "Specialized Expedition" which I picked up for £35 !!! It needed a service and a new set of tyres but ideal for her needs.

If its got to be a new one then a well regarded bike is the Carrera Kraken, from Halfrauds of all places.

The mens version is on offer for just shy of £350 if you order online (20% off offer) but for some reason the ladies version isnt in the same offer (& I'm not sure if the ladies uses the same components). & dont forget Quidco....

By niche I meant:

3.
a. A situation or activity specially suited to a person's interests, abilities, or nature: found her niche in life.
b. A special area of demand for a product or service: "One niche that is approaching mass-market proportions is held by regional magazines" (Brad Edmondson).
I didn't bespoke, merely that it won't appeal to many people.

This is the Top Fuel - it's a 4 inch travel bike aimed at cross country racing . If you want more travel, try the Fuel Ex range - they're 5 - 6 inches of travel and are considered a 'trail' bike.

For a ladies bike, try the Specialized Myka range. They start at around £300 - possibly less currently as the 2011 bikes are due soon so the 'old' stock is being reduced.

Check out here: http://www.cyclestore.co.uk and the code use TRAIN for 10% off - brings the base model down to £270 delivered (same frame as all rest in the range, just different components).
