hiya folks !
after quite a while off the biking scene (something like 15 years )
im getting back out there in the lovely fresh air !
not as young as I use to be so I doubt ill be doing any serious jumping infact most of my riding will be done along towpaths,,river banks and hilly reservoir trecks thrown in,
I know the above would suggest a hard tail but the res trecks I have in mind may see me better suited to a full sus with lock outs,
so,, onto the bike,, looking at my current budget and baring in mind i want something half decent I think its best to start looking on the 2nd hand market,
so far on the shortlist ive got....
specialized stumpjumper (something like an 07 effort)
specialized fsr comp,
gt force 3.0 (seen on quite cheap but both I drives need replacing, is this expensive ?)
giant reign or trance
trek fuel x8
id welcome any opinions on the above bikes and also welcome any opinions on weather I really am making the right choice going for a full susser !
if not, what hard tails would you guys recommend !
phew ! ,,, 1st post out of the way ! LOL
