    Hello!

    I used to MTB locally when I was 15,16,17 in Suffolk & Essex.

    I’m now 28 – Married with a house that I’m renovating and feeling like I need to rekindle a hobby again!

    I’m 6ft – 12.6 St and keen to get going.

    Given the rush for people to get out and about I’m seeing most bikes unavailable – Not all bad given it gives me time to look at reviews etc.

    This will be my only bike and it will be used for downhill, trials, and general 10 mile Sunday rides.

    Any recommendation would be really appreciated

    List so far;

    Vitus Mythique 27 VR £1249.99

    Vitus Mythique 29 VRS £1449

    Calibre Bossnut 3 £1050

    Calibre Trible B £1400

    Jamis Dakar A2 £1250

    Voodo Canzo £1200

    Calibre Triple B is an amazing bike for the money I bought 1 a couple of years ago and I loved it. They are well made with good components and you won’t need to upgrade a thing.

    The Calibre Triple B certainly gets a good review by Bikeradar and certainly seems well worth the price tag.

    I just ordered a Boardman MTR 8.8, specs look great for the money and released this week so plenty of stock at moment.

    My first full suspension, about 20 years since I last ride off-road.
