Had a summer season before.. But want something a bit more refined this time.. Less of a hammer, more of a knife.. It was a fun bike, mind.. Would have bought a 456 Evo.. But no stock for 2 months.. And hard to find S/H..
The Blue Pig is nice.. But again.. Hard to get hold of.. And its damn ugly.. Haha!
Gone for a nice s/h gritstone Cotic in the end.. Should fit the bill. Good price, and looks to be the right angles.. And its pretty pimp.. So I'm happy all round. I'll let y'all know how it rides.. Its such a minefield question, as there's so many good options all around the same price, all offering something different and all with an equally loyal band of lovers..
Hopefully this should be a slightly more refined and lighter (but still utterly raggable) bike than my last big HT.. That was a summer season with 55's, huge tyres and a 33lb weight tag. It was fun.. But very, very silly.. Haha!
