Hi

I need to get a new Mountain Bike. My previous one was a Rockrider 8.1 from 2013. It was stolen a couple of weeks ago.

I was wondering, with the insurance money, should I either buy a new one (Rockrider 560 Mountain Bike B'TWIN - All Bikes Cycling...)
or go for something else ?
I have a budget of £500 to spend and although i am not a complete beginner I am still relatively inexperienced.

Cheers
Liam

wouldn't go for it as it comes with Avid brakes and pretty dated geometry. Better go for Shimano brakes 27.5" wheels and at least 69° headtube angle

Thanks for the advice. I was wondering as it was not reviewed anywhere that I could find where as the old one was. Especially in some of the best buy for around £500 reviews. Seems like they have dropped off somewhat.

What could you recommend instead ? or point me towards ?

Cheers
Liam

Have you thought about buying used?

I picked up a mint condition trek mamba 2013 for £300 on gumtree
