Hopefully some of you can be of assistance...
I am after a mountain or hybrid bike (probably the former) which is going to last a good few years and be ok for road riding but be able to cope off road as well.
Not looking to spend a fortune, ideally £150ish so any recommendations or at least what should I be looking for?
What brands are good now?
What components should I be looking for? ie I hate gripshift.
Any advice would be great cheers.
P.S. I'm 5ft10ish
