    Anybody got any advice on middle-of-the road cross-country/mountain bikes?
    I'm just a poor paperboy who needs a bike for everyday use, with a bit of off-road at weekends and that, and I'm looking at things like the Carrera Vulcan or the Specialized Hardrock Sport, about £250. I've got a small budget I know, but salespeople are bombarding me with different ideas and i have not a clue what to go for. I'm looking at front suspension, rapid-fire shifters, about 20" frame, not too bothered about the brakes. Anyone got any ideas on something hardwearing, decently-specced for around £250? thanks,
    from a confused ginger would-be cyclist

    cheers for the advice, i'm actually now thinking about a gt avalanche 2 or the hardrock, not sure how the carrera compares, also my dad is chipping in a percentage so i want to get basically as good as i can get for under £300. thanks though
