Thanks for your answers.

I went into one of the local bike shops yesterday and road tested a Trek 7.3. Wow, it was light, infact, it felt a little too light, the tyres were pretty smooth, 700x32, I'm not sure if it would be the bike for me for forest tracks. They did say they could do a tyre change f.o.c. to go with a little more tread. I also tested a Mongoose, which certainly had more grip but was the cheaper end of the budget, not so comfortable but it was good to try a different bike on exactly the same hill in succession.

I think it is going to be 'try it and see' try and to switch off from all the jargon (unless you really know what it means, and I don't) and find a comfortable bike.

Thanks for your help, you've given me food for thought. Sarah
