Looking at buying a mountain bike, but have limitations:
Firstly, I am stuck to a budget of £499
Secondly, it must be from Haldords, I know that a lot of you will stop reading now, but any advise would be welcome.
I used to ride loads when i was 15 - 19, i was extremely fit, played 3 sports at decent level and biking was what i did when i wasn't training. Roll the clock forwards a bit and i'm 30, not fit and recently resurrected my football career, which has resulted in a broken leg after 6 games. Not to be put off, season starts again in September and have decided that i want to start riding again too. It will be 80% on road and 20% fun (not extreme, but something a little more interesting).
The Bikes are:
Due to the price and the fact that they are from Halfords, i am guessing that there's all that much difference, but if anyone can have a look over spec and give me a pointer that would be brilliant. I have not ridden any of these due to my leg and one is online only.
Thanks in advance for any help given, I await your advice.
