Great entry level MTB that won't fall apart if taken on trails. Good brand and a great price. This year's model is £380 most places. Only differences I can see are slightly different brakes and different colour. Disc brakes would be nice, but not really going to happen at this price point.

Three sizes in stock.

Looking for a bike for park trails, canals and some riding in the new forest. Would this be suitable/recommended?

I’ve been told I should get a hybrid but this one seems quite good.

It has similar components (gears, brakes, etc to hybrid) The forks will offer a slightly softer ride than a hybrid, but add a little weight. The fork also makes sure the tyre spends more time in contact with the ground on rougher surfaces. Tyres on a hybrid will be less knobbly. This means the tyres on this will grip better on loose or soft surfaces. However, they will offer a little more resistance when pedaling on tarmac.

Short answer - there are pros and cons. Personally, I'd go for this (which is why my daughter is getting it for her birthday). However, I am biased as I hardly ever ride on tarmac. Neither does she.

We ordered it from Tredz and all went very smoothly. Delivery was very quick. Bike was well packed. As with all online bikes, you need to straighten the handle bars and put the pedals on. Really easy as long as you remember to put the correct pedals on the correct side.

Thanks, that’s really helpful.

This would do it but you do need to decide whether you really need suspension (ie how rugged are the trails you plan on using). If you don't you'll save weight and energy and probably some trouble further down the line - suspension on a cheapish bike can't be good since good suspension costs as much as this bike. You could always put knobblier tyres on a hybrid - hybrid means so many things and at one end of the scale they are what is often called a 'mountain bike' in all but name. OP's advice isn't wrong - there just isn't an absolute answer and if you don't plan on using it on-road this could be a good choice.

I'm assuming this is the male version: tredz.co.uk/.Me…htm

Looks like it should be easy to mount and dismount while wearing a voluminous skirt and bloomers.

Did you really just say that - to rephrase you have just put cheap can not be good because it is not expensive.

Other than price being one factor in determining the value of a product I agree with your other points but would add all suspension forks add ongoing maintenance and servicing at all levels which isn't applicable to rigid.
Thanks all, you’ve been really helpful. I guess I’ll mostly be on paths in parks but there’s also some woodlands nearby. I’ve only ever had cheap 2nd hand mountain bikes before so I don’t want to make the wrong choice regarding suspension.

Sounds like we agree but you haven't read or understood what I said.

I understood what you wrote but was asking if that was really as you intended?

If it is then no we do not agree as you are asserting your own subjective definition of what good means.
I have an £1800 wheelies insurance voucher (paet otlf tredz). Any recomend a good hybrid mtb?
ALways puzzled me but why do most mountain bikers not put mud guards on their bikes. I see them often with mud splattered up there back and legs. Is it some sort of fashion statement? Surely the few ounces that a mud guard weighs can't be the answer or maybe it is!

Yeah, and I bet their mums are cross when they get home too!
