Yesterday I was ready to make an impulse buy on one a Prince Albert Classic. I've been thinking about replacing my Trailstar LT for a little while and now feels like the right time, lol!
Thing is, I went home, had a little read around, etc and tbh, I'm now left wondering whether the 853 version is worth the extra over a second hand 725 frame.
From reading some reviews, it sounds like the frame didn't really get much lighter for using the 853, so basically became stronger, yet the original frame is already strong enough (four broken frames since 2004??) - so now I'm wondering if I should get over wanting a brand new frame (I've always had used in the past), and just save a few quid and look out for a lightly used 725 version.
Has anyone ridden both, who could maybe pass judgement??
