Saw you post in the other thread. Out of all the 29er deals of the last 24 hours, this is the hottest for me. Reviews are great also.

Depends what a buyer wants. If they want a to just ride round the estates and maybe twice a year go to the woods somewhere then they're better off with cheap branded bike like the cannon, gt, specialized etc so they can still look cool. If a buyer wants to get out on the trails and wants something with half decent spec but is on a budget then this might be worthwhile. I'm not too bothered about 29ers. This was just to point out options and quite good value for money.

Heat as it's a nice bit of kit at a good price. I'd give heat anyway as you didn't put 'hydrolic' like everyone else does.

I bought myself a Trek 29er for £600 not to long ago.

This isn't to far behind spec wise so for the price it's a great buy.
