I have been offered a chance to take part in the cyclescheme at work, up to £1000 to spend on a new bike from a LBS (near Aberdeen), not including Halfords so no Voodoo or Boardmans!
I have narrowed the search down to 4 options, what do you guys think would be the best choice? If not these then what else would you go for in the same price range?
Cannondale Trail SL 2 - http://www.alpinebikes.com/shop/bikes/mountain-bikes/trail-sl-2/
Background: I’ve never ridden a 29er so not sure what to make of them, I am 6 foot, have an iron horse DH and recently sold my old (2003) specialized epic. I’m looking for an all rounder that will handle the occasional shred. Basically something that will replace the epic.
Confused and in need of opinions!
