This looks like a jump/trick bike to me(notice the low saddle). I would go for the bike in the OP myself ( Commencal is a well known and reviewed brand).

Also consider the Focus Fat Boy (at wiggle cycles) and the Malt 1 (at merlin cycles) - both online.

They both looked similar styles to me!!

Jazid, the two bikes you mentioned are allot more expensive than the Commencal or GT, certainly more than I want to pay!! Is there anything else in this price bracket that should be considered??

I have this bike and it's well within the price range. Its an urban/jump bike so rigid forks at the front. Loads of fun and unless your going to handle some pretty serious downhill/xc riding you'll be fine. by the way, the spec is better than the commancal posted. £50 cheaper too.

My Dad has the Commencal Combi S from 2007 and it is a FANTASTIC bike. We looked at the one in this offer, and my local bike shop wouldn't go below about £500, so we didn't buy it. 6 months later I managed to buy, brand new, the full-sus version worth £850 from my local bike shop on eBay for £320!!!! They even came and set it all up professionally and gave us a free service! Ha!

The geometry of all the Commencals is spot on IMO. They all have a very easy and nice riding style, and cruising along at a constant speed is a breeze. I would recommend anyone looking for a lower range mountain bike to get this one. I'm waiting for the Commencal Combi Disc to be a bargain tho.

So do I.
It's great bike. :thumbsup:

Although this is a great deal for a mountain bike, if all you're going to do is ride this bike on the road it ceases to be such a good deal.

On the road you're better off getting either a road bike or a hybrid and there are many half decent hybrids for around this price. Skinnier tyres and bigger wheels really do make all the difference.

I just bought ]this the other day, arrives tomorrow if all goes well. Not an outstanding spec, but I thought it was a good bike for the price and brand. Has jump bike styling, without actually being a jump bike :-D

The Commencal looks to be a great price for the spec, although it looks rather dull as far as styling goes, that's if that matters to you

prices for mountain bikes are crazy now? im not clued up on them so why would anyone want to spend £300 on a bike?

Your right mate. Unless your going to get something out of rear suspension etc, or performance parts, then £300 is all you really need to 'sensibly' spend ;-) I paid a shade over £200 for my brand new Dahon Espresso 12 months back, just sold it on for £150, so essentially i got a years worth of biking for £50 (not including maintainence etc) The bike I've ordered will be getting sold 12 months from now no doubt! :-D:p

got a giant yukon fx3 a while back, fantastic price for this bit of kit.

Just ordered one of these using ]http//ww….uk
I had to pay an extra 10% admin fee (because that's what cyclescheme charge the shop) but I was happy to do so to get an extra 40% off :-D

Its a fantastic bike for the price.
