OK so the budget is limited, but the eyes are large. What can realistically be bought as a decent £150 hard tail? Something to have fun on but which also ticks the 'aesthetically pleasing' box (V's a minimum)?

18" just in case somebody is looking to get rid of a peach for bugger all monies :wink:

Oh and front 'boings' are a necessity in this debate, the Lakes have a lot of rocks strewn around.

Something GT i reckon? Or scott or something like that. Something that was about £3-400 about 4 or so years ago or whatever?

You should be able to get something like this for a little more:

For that budget try local pick up only on poorly listed ebay listings. Either that or free ads etc. Should be able to find a decent £5-700 bike thats a few years old and a lot of fun.

Let us know what you get!

Build one! I can get you a Black Specialized Hardrock frame for next to nothing (with headset). I've got a few parts you can have and the classifieds will sort the rest. £150 should be no boover :)

Personally if it was me I would start off just searching locally on Ebay and Gumtree, etc. and pick something up like this...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290616355904?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

That is a lot of bike for the money, but haven't you got a Kona Kula as well as a Lava Dome waiting to build up? That covers the frame end of the deal, no?

:)
