Ive decided I want a bike with more
travel skills compensation
to be a 2nd bike to a hardtail.
It has to be ridden around the peak, lakes etc, but also cope with "uk" downhill, uplift days, and holidays abroad.
Accordinly I have been thinking a burly 160mm ish frame is probably the way to go.
It needs to be available in extra large type sizes (ETT ~25")
Ideally 26 inch wheels.
Not cost the earth (2nd hand possible)
My current list:
Cotic Rocket (cy says an XL in in the works)
NP Mega am
Transition Covert (there will be a 275 xl next year apprently)
Anything obvious I should have on the list that isnt there?
Want to demo as many as possible, so Canyon types are out...
