My Giant VT is now 9 or so years old, it's on its last legs and I'm looking to replace it. The sort of riding I'll do on it is 4-6 hr. rides around Black Mountains / Brecon Beacons and trips to trail centres.
Anything over £3k is probably going to be too much. I like the idea of a 29er (not sure how much difference 650b would make over 26"). I had a try out on a mate's Scott Genius 29 it was an L and too small for me but I liked the 29" wheels.
Current thoughts are that I like the look of the On One Codeine and the Enduro Comp 29er looks good value. So in the time honoured STW manner tell me why I should get the same bike as you. I'm looking for a whole bike deal rather than a frame to build up.
As an alternative I have been reading a bit about the Kona Process (thinking of one in 134 flavour rather than 111 due to price) and really like the reasoning behind the design. Anyone here have a Kona Process 134 (I know its 650b not 29er)? How does it ride?
