A full suspension mountain bike

Found 16th Sep 2008
Hi, I am looking for the cheapest full suspension mountain bike made by one of the following- Specialized, GT, Saracen or Gary Fisher

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated



Size ?


Size ?

Presumably specification doesn't matter, it just has to be a standard model by one of the above? No preference of brakes, chainset, saddle, rims, hubs, gear shifters, derailleurs, rear shock type (oil/coil/combo), front shocks or frame size.

Original Poster

Sorry- mens 18"/ medium

No preference to any of the above, althought would prefer not to have disk breaks (but thats not a show stopper)


You looking for new or 2nd hand?

If new, try Winstanleys (winstanleysbikes.co.uk) - they always have good discounts on older models

If 2nd hand try bikeradar.com - they have a good 2nd hand forum

If I was you I'd also consider Trek, Marin, Cannondale, Kona - easily as good as Specialized and GT (arguably better than the others you mention).

Good luck!
