The Voodoo Bizango is the Award winning 'Mountain Bike Rider' Sub £750 Hardtail of the Year 2018. This is basically the same bar the colour except crucially the headset is tapered to accommodate premium forks which in this case is the Rock Shox Judy Gold.

I was very impressed when I had a go of a bizango, handles great, a lot of bike for the money
I’ve got one of these, it’s great! However it’s been this price for months?
Been watching Voodoo bikes for a while and as nathb says the Bokor has been this price for months.
I must admit I never noticed this model before last night strangely, but it's still a great price without equal really.

As a Bizango owner I'm jealous that it has a better fork to start with as it seems I'm stuck with the OEM with no upgrade potential.

The Sram brakes on the Bokor are better too. I'd like to try the grip shift for various reasons, but the Shimano levers on the Bizango are the wrong shape.

Both great bikes for the sale price money.
I'd recommend the voodoo bikes if you can get a better deal. The only real bad thing I've found with ours is the headset bearings are very poor. It's a shame that it's the one area they scrimped on. You can change them for better ones though at not a great cost.
If you ride it hard you will start getting an ever so slight bit of play and it won't tighten any more. Then it's time to replace them.
Great advice thanks. Had ruled out the Bokor for the Bizango but will have a look at it.
I'm in the market for a hybrid bike, up to 400, any recommendations?

How about this? Looked at Carrera ones they have mixed reviews and Boardman too pricey for standard use.

It's a great bike, but yeah, it's been this price for ages.

...I know, because I have to keep stopping myself ordering one!

Oh, and don't forget 10% off if you're a British Cycling member (basically pays for itself).

Looks a nice bike. I was considering a basic Marin Fairfax as a shopping bike. Might look more closely at this as it has hydraulic brakes over the Marin's V-Rim brakes.

Only concern about buying from Halfords is the way they put the bike together, so looking at other options. Tredz has caught my eyes but again, these are relatively expensive bikes..

Yes, I am wary about Halfords for the same reason. My local Halfords has a row of bikes and most of them seem to be chipped or scratched in some way.

I have been advising a friend recently on buying a bike from Tredz. The thing to do with them is to decide on 2 or 3 bikes that you like in your price range, then wait for one of their sales. Often the sale will be about £100 to £150 off a bike. So if your budget is £400 now have a look at some bikes on there in, say, the £500 to £550 range.

Make sure that they have the bike in your size. Then simply wait for the next sale. Often they have 0% on then also.

BUT, when the sale begins you just buy the bike you want. Do not hesitate. If you pause for thought then the bikes will sell out faster than you can say b*gger.
I think it depends on the store. Based on the reviews some stores have really good bike staff. A reviewer my height was advised to have the 16" frame, but two of my local stores said the 20" display size was right for me. Pedalling maybe, but everything else, moving around and what the bike is designed for no. I ordered the 18" and the seat post is only just low enough to suit a 120/125mm dropper post for me. I still wonder about the 16". Not sure if they ever stocked Bokors in 16".
