Thanks in advance for anyone who can actually be bothered to read this drivel...
I currently have a 2011 Lapierre Zesty as a 'summer bike' and a very cheaply built SS Inbred for a 'winter bike'. Unfortunately this needs to be cut down to 1 do-it-all bike due to a change in circumstances.
The simple option is to just sell the Inbred for about £200 and then use the Zesty all year round. But I can't get it out of my head that I could also sell the zesty for about £1k and then buy a second hand HT like a Soul from the classifieds and maybe even pocket a few hundred quid in the process.
So if I had a nice HT would I miss the Zesty when riding the Quantocks and Dartmoor in the summer? Would I still hate riding my 'main' bike all winter in the mud even if it's a HT?
I hate being indecisive but sometimes you just need someone else's view on something to make you see clearly
