I've demo'd a couple of bikes, one of which I really liked and felt at home on and one that I didn't get on with. I could just buy the one I like but keep thinking I should ride some more bikes to be sure. However I do find it hard to make comparisons from one bike to another unless I'm riding them back to back on the same trail and same conditions. Am I better taking the one I like out for another demo but on different trails, to make sure it is still good? Should I confuse matters by demo'ing some different bikes?
My reasoning is that I could demo another bike and find it as good as the one I like. Where does that leave me? Granted if it's not as good I buy the first bike, but maybe it wasn't as good for some other reason such as wrong size, bad trail conditions, too much ale the night before blah blah blah.
Am I just wasting my time demo'ing any more if I've found something I like? Where do I stop?
Sorry to those I've already bored with my bike buying questions. I realise this reads more like a stream of consciousness
