went to my local specialized shop today to pick up my Carve Pro which was going to cost me £1600.
i recently refused a bike due to bad finish on main top tube. in false light i must admit it was hard to detect but when i got the bike home OH GOD!!! you could clearly see paint runs and poorly finished.
today i was hoping for a perfect bike- BUT NO! same.
so now im after a bike again. i would like the same geometry of bike, not too aggressive but capable. im 6ft 4 inches tall and like a relaxed kind of mountain bike due to riding on the road and trail.
what do you recommend?
