Second hand Mountain Bike
Buying a second hand mountain bike is the easiest way of saving money in what can be an expensive hobby. Top quality mountain bikes can be very expensive, running into the 1000s of pounds bracket in the UK.
If you take up mountain biking as a hobby you should also invest in appropriate safety gear like a cycle helmet and protective padding clothing as if you come off the bike when riding down a mountain side you want as much protection as you can get.
Like with many goods a second hand Mountain Bike can probably be found on ebay and better still you can register free.
