well, it has wheels, so that's good.
I definitely think you could get a better spec'd bike for almost $800 though. I don't know what's available in the UK, but in the US I'd go for a rockhopper over that- the comp disc model goes for like $700.

Claud Butler may have had a good name a few Years ago but looking at this bike- Don't bother. Nothing on this bike to recommend it- Unless it is around £250 which it isn't.
Find a decent shop that carries Trek-Giant-Specialised and see what they can do.
Problem is that for £500 you are not going to get much- but this one is nothing. Forks- wheels- gear train are too low spec for any rough riding- and that includes the potholed roads we have at present.
hi many thanks. i am getting one on the cycle to work scheme and i have no idea about mt bikes! i have 500 to spend and want to get the best for my money.....

But if you are mainly on road- Do you need a Mountain bike? Contact Leisure lakes and see what they can offer on bikes.
