The fun ride you get for the price

This multi-award winning 29 inch wheeled hardtail has taken the sub-£750 category of mountain bikes by storm over the last few years, and for good reason. The heart of any bike is the frame, and the Bizango has a cracker for the money, with butted 6061 aluminium tubes providing stiffness and power delivery without weight penalty. The geometry is very much trail ready too, with the modern trend of long reach, wheelbase and slack(ish) head angle giving it a nicely confident feel when tackling more technical terrain. This capability is backed up by cable routing for an internal dropper post, should you wish to push your skills on steeper terrain.

The drivetrain is a surprisingly advanced 1x11 SRAM NX, a cracking deal at this price and a very worthwhile addition to the bike that will keep it rolling along nicely without the complication of a front mech. Brakes are another wise spec with our favourite budget stoppers, Shimano M315s, present. These are likely to function perfectly for a long time to come.

The Suntour Raidon 32 forks are an excellent budget choice, coming as they do with highly adjustable air springs and rebound damping.

Verdict: A terrific value, trail ready package capable of handling everything you throw at it, even if you develop your riding onto more spicy trails.
