    Default Ride to work..?

    There seems to be a good few mountain bikers on here so i may as well ask the question..

    Our company is starting the ride to work scheme on the 7th of this month, i am going to partake in the scheme as it would be rude not too for the benefits

    Basically, we HAVE to buy the bike from halfrauds so my question is from the range what it the best hardtail to buy for a max of 1k??

    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...category_33957

    The only stipulation is it need to come in a 21" frame...

    Cheers guys

    Can't go wrong with a Kona bud.

    Though this isn't bad - http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...tegoryrn_55070

    But if you are just riding on roads ideally a good road bike rather than a mountain bike

    Try one of these http://www.specialized.com/bc/SBCBkM...d=07Rockhopper can recommend Specialized bikes. I ride the Stumpjumper FSR Pro, Halford should be able to get one for around £1000.

    I won't tell you what my custom built road-racer costs then!

    Methink he needs to be shown the difference between a Halfords 'special of the week', and a proper lightweight bike!
