Pal of mine lives outside Geneva, rides road, wants to get a mtb.....He'll do weekends in Verbier and Les Gets and so on but most of his riding is going to be a lot less down-hilly and technical that, plenty of more XC stuff round the woods near GVA. Even with uplift he isnt going to go looking for the really steep, rocky stuff.
So clearly if it was most folk on here we'd want a couple of bikes to cover all that, he's got a budget of around £3k and wants one bike.
I'm a bit out of touch with full sussers, I have in my head that something 29", 120mm both ends might be the right set-up.....Agree/disagree.....suggestions? Thanks
