You'll see from some of my previous posts, my mind changes more than the wind on which make/model I'm after.
Thought I'd put it out to the good people of singletrack.
£3kish budget, must be brandnew, preferably full build.
26 or 650b, but leaning towards 650b.
General AM riding, most weekends spent riding DH/techy trails but riding back to the top of them.
Will also be racing Enduro again this year. A bike that can take 180mm fork would be an advantage for trips to the Alps.
EDIT: 140-160mm FS.
