    Will see what my NHS employer can offer me as the limits are set by the employer. But no reason for it to be not £1k plus.

    All good bikes. Waiting times might be an issue but I am in no rush tbh.
    Rather wait and ger what I want plus i have plenty to keep me busy and give a chance to get Carrera out.
    I know its only a Carrera but I do like the ride and look.
    Pictures will follow

    I have had a little look around.
    Not sure if they're top 3 or not but certainly like the look of the
    Voodoo bizango 29er carbon for £1k.
    GT Zaskar
    Or
    Calibre Bossnut (bit left field that one)
    I am sure theres lots of others out there to.

    I think you have hit the nail on the head. I love my old bike and dont want to give up on it but I doubt its up to the rigours now but would benefit from some upgrades. New bike would be for actual mountain biking but has to be governed by the upper limit of the bike to work scheme budget. From what I've seen, theres some decent bikes for that amount (£1k max I believe)

    Hi all
    Question.
    Do I take advantage of the bike to work scheme and buy myself a decent brand new mountain/ trail bike. Something like a hardtail 29er or 27.5er?
    Or

    Do I invest in some cash in my 20+ yr old steel hard tail 26er?

    I havent ridden a mountan bike in anger for a very long time so I imagine that a new bike would be a revelation.
    Any thoughts always appreciated. Just thought it would start a conversation. If this is posted in the wrong place apologies.
    Cheers
    Micky
