Looking for advice on buying a mountain bike

Found 8th Jul 2009
I'm looking at getting a hard tail bike to be used mainly on the road but also for some off road, i've got a budget of up to £500 and have got a few in mind:

Giant terrago disc

Giant yukon

Giant xtc 3.5 (2007)

Has anyone got one of these or something similar or is there another one they would recommend?

Any advice appreciated .

whats with the giants? how about specialized, kona etc

you need to go into a shop really and check out some differnt models then go online and find it cheaper

i got specialized enduro myself

My brother bought a giant for £500 & I got a scott aspect 20 2008 (similar price) & the scott is a far superior bike. (& that's not me being biased he agrees)

Giants are just the ones i've seen in the shop that i liked the look of and i've read some good reviews of them but i'm open to other people views on ehat are the better bikes

when you choose what you like, try out the government "cycle to work" initiative because if you ar eeligible it makes a decent bike a fair bit cheaper, plus you pay in installments over a year.

mate of mine is doing it with a very good quality folding bike and is saving about £350

I got my bike on cycle to work scheme too. I live 30 miles away from work, it would mean getting up at 5.00am. I don't cycle to work, but i did save 45% on a brand new bike.
I got my bike from leisurelakes.com & they quite good service
