I am considering dipping my toe into the 29er market with a cheaper end 29er SS - sub £600. Having done the google search I am somewhere between the Charge Cooker or the Cannondale SL.
I know one is steel and one Alu, does any one out there know the real life difference between the bikes?
Do you know if either can be changed to geared, if my legs are not up to SS?
Are there any little bike gems that I have missed?
