im back for a holiday to the uk stayin with my folks.
went for a ride with a few mates yesterday up to leith hill in surrey.
now i dont understand something.
the amount of people who were riding £2k+ bikes... orange, heckler etc...
now we were riding hardtails all of us and we had NO PROBLEMS with them and i definatly saw no need for a hardcore full sus bike.
got chatting to a few guys and they were all sayin that they ride here and holmbury st mary (next to leith hill)
so the questions is whats the point of spending £2k+ on a bike where the bike is soooooooooooo much better than the riders ability or the places people ride???
not a dig by any means just wondering how people justify spending so much on a bike that people like our selves could do on a £600 hardtail.
