    My partner has expressed an interest in coming riding with me and wants a first bike. I don't want to spend a great deal (as I do on my own bikes, of course!) in case it turns out she doesn't take to the sport. The riding we will be doing will be on grassy/stoney pennine tracks rather than rocky downhills. I'm therefore looking to spend under £400 and have seen this, which seems like a reasonable deal:

    Any advice on this or suitable alternatives would be greatly appreciated.

    A friend of mine has the Hardrock and has no complaints. I have just recently brought the RockHopper and it is perfect for my needs; single track XC stuff. Spesh do pretty decent entry level hardtails.

    Take a look at Decathlon Rock Riders. Also the Carrera Vengeance - got one for my son and it was a cracker at £330.

    price as i said in my advert ,sensible offers. you know what its worth and what you would be willing to pay for it second hand as I am not sure what to ask for it. it is in your budget as you can buy it new for 400. thanks julie

    Thanks, Julie, but you're a little too far away, I'm afraid.
