Just got some inheritance money so I'm going to treat myself to a new mtb. I do mainly trails and jumps and just wondering what heads recommend for my budget. I want something that looks nice, show offy, p*ss my friends off etc.

Thanks.

Trance X4. If sheer ability is your priority then you simply won't get a more capable full squidger at that price. Double bonus, it uses the same frame as the X0 o you're not being short changed on quality, and as parts wear out you can slowly up-spec it. A good bike to grow in to.

Indeed, Giant have just knocked a further £100 off the RRP so you'll have some cash left over for a new lid.

same position, & budget as op, I had more or less settled on a cube ams 130, or merida, but the canyon would seem to blow both of these out the water !!
cheers Cubist nice one :dance:

Are you really into jumps and trails, which one do you do more? I ask because it'll be tricky to find a bike that does both well. A lot of the bikes mentioned are great trail bikes, but would not make great jump bikes (too steep head tube angle, lack of travel, etc)

For example a Giant Trance would make a great trail bike, but a Giant Reign may be better if you prefer to jump rather than just ride trails.

Still an awesome bike but the OP mentions jumps and trails, which is why I would t necessarily put a 120mm Boardman first on the list. A FS xc bike though, yep, still one to consider

Build your own?
To come within budget you'd need to source used parts, if not a bargain donor bike.

Have a check on the OnOne website. They were doing a heavily discounted 160mm el Guapo with a Cane Creek DB shock for 500. The rest you'll have to source secondhand to stay under £1500 I reckon.
