I'm looking for a new bike as mine got stolen from my garage . I have claimed off the house insurance, the only thing is I need to pick one from their website so I'm a bit limited by my choice and I don't know that much about bikes so looking for a bit of advice on what to get.
I will probably ride 50% on pavement, 25% on hard-packed gravel trails, and 25% on single track-type trails
This was my previous bike I got stolen
Evans Cycles | Saracen Mantra X-27 2010 Mountain Bike | Online Bike Shop
he insurance company said I have £500 to get a bike from their website but can pay more if I like a bike that cost more and will get 25% off the extra I pay. The most I would pay would be a bike at the value of £750 maybe a bit more.
This is the website I've got to get one from. I've put the search price at £500-£800.
