I've got a bit of time on my hands and have been fancying a full suss bike to have alongside my hardtail for sometime.
I currently ride a C456 with 100-120mm travel up front and mainly ride XC with the occasional trail centre visit.
If you had about £1500 to spend on a full susser, what would you do and what would you recommend?
1 - Buy something new
2 - Buy something second hand
3 - Build something yourself
I'm tempted by option 3 for the enjoyment, and the budget could then go up a little as I'd buy bits over time.
What option would you go for, and what bike would you go for?
