I am in the market for a new (or second hand) MTB.
Mine is kaput.

I am a weekend warrior, so my budget limit is R10,000

Advice or pointers please.
 :thumleft:

What type of riding do you have in mind? I bought a second hand Silverback Spectra Comp 29", and I love the bike  >:D Good offroad and onroad ability with decent components.

Have a look at the bikehub website for info etc

Mainly normal stuff. I usually ride the Tygerberg trails, and do a fun ride every month or so. As I said, nothing serious. No downhill stuff, anyway.
I was thinking joining bikehub but another forum would just waste more of the time I have to spend on Wilddogs

Kaboef, wat het jy en wat soek jy of wat is vir jou belangrik?

Ek het ook rondgekyk in daai prysklas en mens moet gewoonlik iets iewers opgee. Bv dual suspension vs hardtail of 29" vs 26" of goeie shock vs entry level etc.

Bikehub kan jy die ads sien sonder om op die forum te registreer. Bikemarket adverteer ook baie van sy fietse daar lyk dit my.

Somtyds het plekke soos cyclelab goeie specials op nuwe fietse wat ou stock is of as die nuwe jare se modelle uitkom.

Those look great guys, thanks.
I will follow up on the ads.

I have a 8year old son who is really into cycling so I have to buy him a decent bike now, so dad has to make do with what is left of the budget.
