I need to cut down my bike collection. Currently I have a Giant Anthem (but I only race 3 times a year now and don't do so well anyway), an Orange Five, an Evil Sovereign (which is great, but doesn't get used much at all now, use can be counted on my fingers each year), a De Rosa road bike and a Giant SCR winter bike (but I just use the De Rosa instead).
I want to cut it down to the De Rosa and one other. What suggestions have we got?
My riding is in the Peak District day to day but with a lot of big mountain trips in the Highlands, Lakes and the two in Snowdonia, an annual trip to the Alps/Pyrenees and the odd 10/24 hour race. Maybe an enduro if I can be arsed again. I like to think I'm reasonably quick up and down.
I'd need sub 30lbs, slack and long is what I like, £2500-£3000, ideally something with Rockshox forks and 26" or 650b only. Forefront in my mind now is the 2014 Specialized Stumpy Evo Comp- any other ideas?
