I am away serving in Afghanistan at the moment but have saved up enough for a new bike when I get back in March! I know I will get abuse for this but, I have decided that I want a 650B 150/160 ish travel full suss. I have narrowed it down to a few bikes, and thought I had settled on one, but am having reservations on certain things. Like is it silly to buy an expensive aluminium bike when carbon is now so accessible?
I have got it down too these bikes:
Knolly warden (alu, no carbon option)
Pivot mach 6 Carbon
Intense carbine 275 Carbon.
The knolly is what I am gravitating to but each has its plusses and minuses.
I'm interested to know your opinions,
