  6. Hi there, I am looking to buy a second hand bike that can do the Argus and some casual trails? Not sure if this is the right place? I haven't been on a bike for more than 10 years and I want to get back into it now. Would you recommend getting something second hand or is it better to buy brand new? Budget = <10k Thanks!
