Post by crm250dude on Thu Nov 17, 2016 7:52 pm

Need to get a mountain bike for my foster boy for crimbo - got a budget of about £150 

...rather than get a made in china thing from halfords i'm sure with that budget I can get something second hand but decent

See although youre taking the piss there - that is actually an important issue...

MTB's with rear suspension are pigs to wheelie - unless you can set them to rock hard ...
so im more inclined to look for one with just fork suspension ....

wheelieing is of utmost importance !!!
