What is a Hard Tail Mountain Bike?
Thick, knobbly tyres and lots of gears are the overriding features of these machines. Strong frames are built to take the rough with the smooth and can often be accompanied by a front suspension fork for added comfort and control. Theyre designed mainly for off road use but these solid, comfortable bikes often meet more general needs.

Can't fault it for that price! Your best bet is to go for a Giant or GT with a good aluminium frame and then just upgrade the other bits as you go. Personally the GT Avalanche is my personal weapon of choice but that Giant doesn't sound bad for the price.

Oh and a hardtail means it has no rear suspension (rear sus is a waste of time unless your paying £800 for a bike anyway).
I've been looking at this bike aswell.

I'm not sure whether to go for the Boulder or Boulder Disc. Seen the Boulder ]here for £205 not sure if I'd need disc breaks, I've not ridden a bike for years:roll:
