Post your fave bikes! ones with motors or not......

motors you need to stick to less than 300cc cos anything bigger is daft nowadays :P actually up to 313cc cos that's what a BM GS 310 has got and they're dirt cheap in India

so I found this 'adventure bike' which is only 700 US bucks which is exactly 500 quid....how cheap!!!???

I don't know much about bikes. I have an MTB made by Scott, I bought it mainly because I like the colours (black and lime green). It's quite old now.

The cost of bikes nowadays is utterly ridiculous, another sign that people are receiving too generous tax benefits perhaps.

On Halfords website there are literally 50+ bikes that are priced at £3k or more.

Yes, serious money! My flatmate back in the late 80s had a £1200 bicycle. Serious money then, but he did use it. To work every day.

Currently researching E-MTBs with intent to buy. I came across a website for a bikeshop in Spain which helpfully came with English translation and prices in GBP, which were slightly over half UK prices. Guessing bikes are like motors and the UK gets gouged on price compared with most of the world just because.

That is the model I got to try out. The owner had recently bought it at a big discount in the UK, but still paid around a £1k more than that shop appears to be asking.

@Caravan Monstercool cheers, that's an older model so I'd just double check potential issues with a 'Bosch Performance CX' motor from that year......I've heard a few negatives things about Bosch warranty and them being a bastard to fix but yeah that's the sort of price I'd be interested in biting at too

I'm mainly a roadie I just fancy an off roader for a bike o fun......and yeah that Trek looks v.cool in the grey colour!
