I have been asked for advice for recommendations for a £1000 full sus' bike with 4 or 5" travel.
Are there any good offers on the go?
This seems good: Specialized FSR
A large would be needed though.
theres the giant anthem x3 at £1100 and the trance x5 at £1000 4" & 5" inch respectively
Have a look on pauls cycles, they seem to have some good deals
Have a look at the cannondale prophet 2 £1075
If its the £1300 one, for £1000 then apart from the questionable colour scheme, then yes its good. The only issue might be the 100mm travel. Though the suspension design is very effective and the fork very good (a lot of hardtails last year didn't have forks that good for £1000 RRP), the rider may want more travel, even if they just think they do, when they may not be getting any more than they would out of a 100mm one.
Have a look at pauls cycles .... got myself a mongoose canaan elite , full xt ... recons .. fox rp2 and full easton finishing kit for less than £1000 ... Got over £500 off .... 4 inchs of travel .. excellent spec for the money
For £1100! Whats going on. Yes, its good. If they after a 4 or 5" travel full as opposed to a 5" one (which may imply a more hefty bike) then it should be spot on.
The new Boardman full susser looks good value at under a grand
I've just got an '08 Stumpy FSR comp for £1050 from scotby cycles. Which was nice.
I went for the 09 FSR XC Comp
If you're willing to go a little higher, a specialized pitch pro could be had for about £1200 on sale.
