The Cube attention 2012 has been around below £500 over the last few months, thats probably a decent price but I don't think £700 is

Well, first things first. the Rockrider is certainly not shoot. It is probably the most recommended bike on here at the £500-£700 price point (along with Voodoo Hoodoo & Boardmans from Halfords). You won't go too far wrong with it for the money

my vote would be a boardman or a voodoo, i have the boardman team pro HT and its brillent.

for the lower end of your budget i would go for a voodoo, but if you want to go all out and spend 850 then it would have to be a boardman team without any dout,
look at the two reviews...

(voodoo best total bargain 2012) :)

(boardman team, max speed per pound award 2012) :mrgreen:

for the price the spec of the bikes is great, and you will find it hard to find a bike as well spec or as light as the boardman team. (LoL can you tell i love my boardman) :wink:

Rockrider 8.1 is a cracking bike for the money I looked for a while and done a lot of research before I bought mine and for the money I didn't find anything that came close am well happy with it . Superb bikes and a good service from decathlon aswell . Big recommendation from me . You won't be disappointed .
