Here you are everyone for all those new years resolutions that you're going to make, this is by far the best bike i could find for the money from a very good manufacturer. I looked over a lot of the entry bikes and i hope this helps someone it also comes with free delivery or free collect instore.

A fantastic entry level mountain bike or those on a budget, the Scott Aspect range was designed with the ethos of creating a brilliantly performing hardtail but at an affordable price.

Boasting a lightweight construction creating a light and efficient ride, the Aspect 750 is as adapt on technical singletrack as it is on descents and long climbs. Set-up with Tektro hydraulic disc brakes and Shimano drive train, Syncros components and geometry designed around the 27.5 inch wheel platform the Scott Aspect 750 has a lot to give, for not a lot of money.

Nice bike for the money.

nice

Not bad actually.

Good manufacturer. Good spec for that price. Hot.

doubt your find a better bike for under £300 heat from me.

Scott put a lot of effort into their frames they highly upgradable so this bike will be good for someone to upgrade as parts wear out

Anyone recommend a very entry bike for a very unfit person for around £150-200.

I am a complete amateur.

If I was tall enough I'd be buying this. Heat.

​In all seriousness can you find another 99 quid? This Scott would make for a more enjoyable experience than a cheapo bike. It'll last longer, you'll want to ride it more, it's far better vfm in the long run.

I'm totally sold on this, looks great and I'm fed up of gaffer taping my old bike back together (figuratively speaking..)

Anyone have experience of Scott sizing? I have a GT large frame at the moment and I'm no expert but it seems about the right size. I'm about 6'2" on a good day. Should I go for L or XL? Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

Hi,​what was the price difference ?

3.45% TCB.

Hi,

For an adult beginner would you recommend this bike or the bike in the deal below for £249 - http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/carrera-hellcat-mens-mountain-bike-249-carrera-axle-169-halfords-2586201

Thanks in advance.

This is a good deal for the right person. However, most 'mountain bikes' are used on-road; you'd be better off with a hybrid with narrower tyres and no suspension in that case.

wiggle have a very similiar spec bike in lime green http://www.wiggle.co.uk/verenti-mesh-acera-2016/

I'm on the look out for a decent bike for commuting purposes. Mountain … I'm on the look out for a decent bike for commuting purposes. Mountain bike as I don't trust road bike tyres in the wet or slippery conditions. Budget of between £500-£800. I've seen some good looking bikes but I'm a beginner when it comes to spec knowledge. Halfords Voodoo at £500 is well reviewed by the experts bur I've read bad things from users.https://www.rutlandcycling.com/318639/products/giant-talon-27-5-0-2016-hardtail-mountain-bike-blue.aspx any good?Sorry if I'm asking in the wrong place, I just need an epxerts opinion before taking a punt.Cheers


you are probably worth going into a local bike shop, or bike chain evans cycles etc and asking for recommendations, they can price match (even if through offering accessories helmet gloves etc)
buying a commuter style mountainbike would make sense as it will likely have slimmer tyres, comfort and gearing setup for road use.
in terms of the rutland bike it has 2.2" tyres so not overly wide, i tend to ride 2.10" on my road mtb (my cannondale lefty rides like a dream and covers long distances well). the wider the tyre the more rolling resistance, how far is your commute if its a short ride then it doesnt matter so much,

drivetrain
In terms on drivetrain/ gearing try to get the bike with the highest listed below,
[deore is the lowest true offroad build quality, the bracketed numbers indicate number of gears on the rear cassette/cogwheels ie (9) 9 speed (11) 11 speed, for a £800-£900 bike i'd want deore minimum with an slx/xt rear derailleur, £500 alivio/acera, £300 altus/tourney
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Groupset#MTB.2FGeneral
Deore XT (9/10/11)
SLX (9/10)
Deore (9/10)
Alivio (8/9 )
Acera (8 )
Altus (8 )
Tourney (7/8 )

front fork
look for a lockout, and if possible a rockshox/fox/manitou branded rather than suntour.
[note without a lockout the fork will soak up your forward exercion, and slow you down, making you put more effort in]
brakes
look for hydraulic over mechanical (ie wired look like hydraulic) or Rim/VBrakes
wheel size
I'd think a 29er (29"wheel size) may lend itself to a nicer ride and also as they are slightly less favourable these days so you may get a better discount than you would on a bike with 650b aka 27.5" tyres (before 2012 all bikes were pretty much 26" wheels)

I'm sorry but I have to say this is VERY bad advice for someone who appears to be seeking genuine guidance!

There's a clue in the name 'mountain bike' - everything about it is biased towards off road use. Those fat tyres will provide more resistance, the suspension will add weight (to no benefit on-road), the gearing will be set up for trails, not roads.

For COMMUTING the questioner would be far better off with an appropriate model of hybrid (a term which covers many different types). The concern about road tyres may or may not be valid but a decent pair of 700c x 30-35 tyres would provide a good compromise and would grip better on road than mountain tyres, which are not designed for this purpose.

Of course you could commute on a mountain bike but it won't be the best so please don't mislead someone seeking worthwhile advice!

'very bad advice' the guy says he wants a mountain bike style for commuting, I've advised what to look out for.
have you even read my comments.
'buying a commuter style mountain bike would make sense as it will likely have slimmer tyres, comfort and gearing setup for road use'
see a bike shop for advice,

he doesnt want a road bike

I've also asked what mileage he would be doing, if hes doing a few miles a mtb would be ideal no need for special footwear, and a race position back
ps. why do you consider i have reason to misadvice the chap, get out on your bike you seem moody,

neither unfortunately, riding the dark peak and the pennines of huddersfield and halifax, a bike with deore as minimum would be far more appropriate, i've seen bikes with the lower end shimano shake to bits.

a full suspension bike with 120/130mm of travel would be advantageous and allow you to ride the more gnarley stuff on offer. [but that'll mean at least £1200 spent], get a good quality hardtail bike with deore (minimum £600-800) and if possible a front fork with an airshock rather than coil/spring. some good quality tyres and learn to ride offroad, then after a year or too spend some pounds on a better bike.
whatever you do dont buy a enduro bike with a massive suspension like 160mm its overkill and likely to be harder to get moving. always makes me laugh southern friends and acquaintances riding such big expensive bikes

​Thanks for the reply, you are obviously much more informed than I am. I'm a beginner and don't want to spend as much as that. I'll probably only go to the Peaks a few times a year for a bit of fun.
I wanted to spend 300-350. Obviously, with that budget I know I'm not getting anything special but I just want a solid bike that I can have some fun on.... and fall off of and it not be in a million bits

It really is spend a bit more and then you.ll enjoy it more, a cheaper bike gears will start crunching/slipping, brakes howling and noisy creeks, a good second hand bike is always an option,
Anything with an RRP lower than £550-600 is not designed for true offroad, you.ll be fine on firetracks, smooth bridleways and canal towpaths when using bikes with drivetrains lower than deore,
Keep an eye on the sales and try get a bike when on sale with deore that is
10 speed (i.e. Rear cassette is 10 cogs), and you can upgrade parts overtime, for example Merlin cycles sell m445 hydraulic brakes for £17.50 each, a good quality rear derailleur mech can be had for £20-25 @ je james (I posted the deal earlier)

Thanks for the response. My work commute is only around 3 miles there and back I just want a decent spec'd bike for my lay out of £600-800. Comfortable with longevity. I live near a Halfords which is great for tune ups etc however I wouldn't rely solely on them for that purpose as I can just pay for a silver or gold service. I'll be ordering soon and am thinking of the Scott 770 evanscycles.com/sco…332 or paying more for the Scott 700 if the extra money is worth it.
Also the Boardmans at Halfords are well reviewed if anyone's had experience with those.

The scale 700 is super light and super expensive, probably overkill for a short commute,
In terms of the 770
2016 model is reduced to £599, 2017 £749, go for the older model, similar spec.

It's all deore and so should work well, 13.2kg sounds ok for a MTB at that price range.
The scale 750 2016 model is down to £919 and down to 11.7kg a mix of slx and xt rear mech with a fox fork, noticeably lighter, but would it make that much a difference.

once you set your mind or heart on a bike compare the componetry on the models and decide if the more expensive bike is worth it, tbh deore and slx parts tends to be similar priced on many of the website, the key price points are on the fork and wheels (no info given) and remember you can always upgrade overtime or do as I do buy the bikes and parts and resell specced parts as new unused, before you ride it.
For example, A bog standard hg50 hg62 deore cassette 11-36t = 459grams
or xt m771 is 336g, a significant weight saving for £20
