Best Mountain Bike Under £500 Benefits

In fact, there are plenty of high-quality mountain bikes available for under £500.

Here are some advantages of selecting one from this category:

Factors To Consider When Choosing Best Mountain Bike Under £500

The best mountain bike under £500 is the one that suits your needs and requirements. 

It’s important to know what you want from a bike before making any purchase, as this will help narrow down the search. 

best mountain bike under £500

There are many different types of mountain bikes on the market with different features and specifications – so it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. 

We’ve compiled a list of factors that we think are most important when choosing a bike: 

Frame Material

The first factor is what kind of material the frame is made from. You should select a frame that is durable, but light. 

There are three main materials to choose from: titanium (strong & expensive), steel (heavy but strong), and aluminum (lightweight). 

Sometimes the material used depends on what type of bike it is; for example, freeride bikes tend to be made out of aluminum whereas downhill/enduro bikes are made from steel. 


There are two types of mountain bike suspension – front and rear. 

Front suspension helps absorb the bumps in the trail, whilst rear suspension smoothens out bigger bumps and can be locked to improve pedaling ability on smoother paths. The type of suspension you choose depends on what kind of riding you plan to do.

Front suspension can be rigid (no suspension), hardtail (suspension in the front only), or full-suspension (suspension in both front and rear). The rear suspension is usually either hardtail or full-suspension, with air/oil being more common on higher-end bikes. 


The number of gears a bike has can vary; entry-level bikes usually have around 16 speeds and more expensive models tend to offer 24. 

However, this is not always the case as some high-end bikes may only have 10 or 12 gears. Having more gears allows for speed changes over a greater range, which helps you tackle all sorts of terrain. 


Wheels are usually either 26″ or 29″ inches. The size should ideally suit your height. An overly large or small wheel can make it difficult to control the bike and may even lead to injury if you have trouble controlling it. 26″ wheels are ideal for younger children whereas 29ers are suitable for adolescents and adults. 


There are two kinds of brakes you can choose from when buying a mountain bike – rim brakes or disc brakes. 

Disc brakes offer more stopping power, which is useful when going downhill at high speeds. However, they also add weight to the wheel(s). Rim brakes are lighter but they may stop being so effective in wet conditions or where lots of mud build up on the braking surface.

FAQs about Best Mountain Bike Under £500

What Is The Best Bike For A Beginner?

If you are a beginner, there are many things to factor in before buying your first bicycle. Many people recommend an aluminum frame because they are generally lighter weight and less expensive than steel frames. 

Comfort is another important factor for beginners, so make sure the seat feels good on your behind! Lastly, you should always choose a bike with front suspension unless you are riding exclusively on smooth pavement.

Why Should I Buy The Best Mountain Bike Under £500?

The price range of £500 is ideal for most people because it’s enough to get a good quality bicycle that will last without breaking the bank. You can find many high-quality bikes for this price and some of them even offer better components than more expensive bikes.

When you’re buying your bike, always prioritize comfort over everything else. If the bike is uncomfortable to ride, you won’t enjoy it and you will be less likely to want to use it! It’s worth spending more money on a comfortable saddle that will last longer, and on handlebars that suit your body type.

What Size Bike Frame Should I Get?

There are three measurements that will determine what frame size you should choose: standover height, top tube length, and seat tube length. 

Ideally, the top of your inseam (the part of your leg between your groin and knee) should be about 1 inch (2.5 cm) below the top of the frame when you sit on the saddle and rest your feet flat on the ground.

If this is not possible, it’s better to go for a smaller frame size because you can always extend the seat post to make up for some leg length difference. If you have longer legs

How Fast Do Mountain Bikes Move?

A mountain bike can reach speeds of up to 100 km/h, but only if the rider is an experienced cyclist with properly tuned components.

For most people, it’s safe to assume that speeds are lower. Even if you are an experienced rider, it’s not recommended to go faster than 25-30 km/h on a mountain bike because you need higher reaction times due to the uneven terrain, sharp turns, and other obstacles present in the forest.

How Long Do Mountain Bikes Last?

It depends on several factors related to the bike and to the type of terrain you ride on, but it’s safe to say that a mountain bike can last for several years if it is properly maintained and taken care of!

After years of service, most components will eventually need to be replaced including tires that may not last for more than 500 km. Again, it all depends on how you ride and what surfaces you choose. 


Mountain biking is an exhilarating experience that can be enjoyed by families, novice riders, and seasoned professionals. The best mountain bike under £500 for you will depend on your needs as well as the terrain where you’ll ride most often.
