I've got a Zesty, but I just don't get on with it, which is a shame. I managed to get a decent ride on a mates 5 this weekend, and it felt considerably nicer, hence my potential interest in changing.
But then I started looking at the Alpine, which seems a bit slacker and longer. Being of a DH background this appeals, but the vast majority of my riding will be singletrack, maybe the odd Wales trip, the Mega and occasionally when the DH bike is bust, it may even get used for a bit of that.
Is it silly to consider the bigger bike when the vast majority of the time I will be right in the 5's terratory? I plan on running it with some modified 36 Van's at 150mm anyway.
I can't find anything else that appeals without spunking a shed load more cash on a Mojo HD, which i'm sure would be lovely, but would it be £800 more lovely?
