Hey,

As the title says, I’m looking for a bike. I have around £300 (480 USD ).

I’m not really a, going down muddy tracks type of person, its more of a bike to get me from A to B (work) but not on the road. I go on cycle paths and but the paths I do go on are bumpy from where paving has cracked.

Something I can show off would be a bonus, and I need lots of gears, not that I use them because I currently use the highest gear at the moment on a 15 gear bike because I like to use more power in my legs yet not as many resolutions.

So, any images/model numbers you can give me would be much appreciated.

Trek do a great basic mountain bike for 325, solid and reliable.

I’d go with a lower end Giant or Specialized. I’ve own both brands (my mountain bike and my road bike are both Giants) and they’re really solid. They tend to be on the higher end, but you can get the low end models and still get a really good bike.

+ infinite! Strongly recommending them! :)

The pain my downhill took before it broke down… oh my! I can only say, they are 10000 times stronger than anything out there! They are worth every penny! :)

I like my Giant, but I would definitely recommend specialized and Trek as well. Also Kona.

I got a Marin Larkspur last year and it is solid. I suppose you’d call it a hybrid, 27 gears but no suspension and thin tyres. Very lightweight and incredibly well built.

It was in my local cycle shop for £425 but managed to haggle it down to £350 with a free helmet, lock, lights and mudguards thrown in. (My time spent in North Africa was spent learning the fine art of the haggle)

Anyway, look into Marin. You won’t regret it.

In the UK Cube bikes are great with good spec.

480 USD is a bit too small budget for a decent bike even in my country where everything is quite cheap.

I am using this one which is a local brand and it still costs a bit more. I am not sure, but I think they are available in several European countries, including UK.
