I have come to realise that I only have the space for one bike and it will never be a £4000 uberbike.
I currently ride a 2008 Rockhopper and am looking to upgrade to something more capable, especially in regards to descending.
My riding is mainly Lakes based, but Hamsterly and local woods around Durham make do when time is short.
My bike needs to do my commute as well but seeing as it is under 4 miles, I guess I can do it on anything . . .
I have around £800 to spend on a frame. I already have a set of 2012 Fox 36 RLC TALAS, a pair of flows on pro2 evos and seatpost,bars and stem to use in the build.
I noticed that the EG with monarch is back in stock, and it is quite tempting. However would I be less 'overbiked' with a BFe when it comes to the commute and local blasts?
My main goal is to have a riot on Lakeland rides, but the other factors are always at the back of my mind.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
