Mountain Bikes can easily cost 10 x £600 for an all singing and all dancing full suspension mountain bike, from one of the world’s leading bike brands such as Scott and Cannondale. A budget of £600 does allow you access to some of the world’s best bike brands though, but limited to choosing a hardtail mountain bike.
Mountain bikes under £600 from these bike brands have good quality components, alloy frames which provide a good balance between strength and lightweight performance - as well as front suspension forks which provide 100mm of travel, which is ideal for cross country performance.
These mountain bikes have ‘trickle down’ technology and design features from the top performing mountain bikes in the range, and have hydraulic disc brakes and gearing designed to tackle all off-road terrain.
