Ahum, how aboutThis very nice, reasonably priced downhill bike
beginner downhill freeride bike?
jimmer 20 kg is heavy. With a 15/16 kg bike you can still do an epic ride and have some fun on DH days.
I use to have 2 pair of wheels for my switch. A light one I kepts for epics on saturndays, and an heavy pair, pushing the weight of the biek to 17.5 kg perfect for one hour climbs and uplift days.
As other have confirmed, makes sure you know what you want to do with you bike, it's easy to get hook up my marketing niche.
As said gnar ganr can probably go down fort william on is fully rigid carbon bikes faster than steve peat does, but that does not apply to mere mortals. And I concurs the stinky is a very good bike that would be able to handle DH day without problems.
what is wrong with the stinky
spend a grand on an 08 stinky
and ride the tits off it
spend the rest on armour, full face lid uplift days at cwmcarn, ae etc etc
Forget pedalling - thats what your other bike (I'm assuming you have other bike) is for.
I've got a Giant Glory, not ridden it for ages as I'd blown my brakes up, literally - was thinking about selling it as I was starting to forget just how much fun it is - decided to buy new brakes instead..........cant wait to put its through its paces at weekend!
Agree with another comment on here about the leverage - I'm fairly heavy and the recommended spring just isnt enough
I'm selling a 17" Kona Coiler Supreme for £2k
you can get an exdemo kona coiler rrp1500 for 750 on the exdemo page on their uk website. looks in good nick, tho id be tempted by joxsters cos that'll have a better spec and i doubt he shags that everyday (no pun)
It does slightly depend what you want but assuming you have another bike available for xc duties and that this one is for dh riding, uplifts, holidays with lifts etc then I'd look on the southerndownhill.com and descent-world.co.uk forums. £2k will get you a huge amount second hand at the moment. you'll have your pic of any bike you want with a decent spec in good condition if you don't rush too much.
