Hi Guys, wondering if you can help with a few questions.
I'm thinking of a SC Bronson but would be getting the full bike not building myself etc. Questions below and would be grateful for some REAL WORLD advice
1. Carbon or Alu - Will I notice a massive difference in the way the bike handles? Never had Carbon before but if there is a big advantage then would consider.
2. The cheaper build comes with Rock Shox RL forks the upgraded forks are Rock Shox Pike - again what are the real world advantages of upgrading?
3. Susp. Standard is Fox CDT the upgrade is Fox CDT Kashima - same as above will I notice anything major
I will be using the bike for mostly UK riding, Peaks,Lakes, Wales, Scotland etc and will mostly be doing natural terrain so not a great deal of MB Centre stuff. I will also use it maybe once a year for a week in places like Chamonix.
I'm not the best or worst rider, well havent ridden for a few yrs so probably need to get up to scratch again but I would class myself as pretty average.
There is a big difference in price in the above upgrades and just want to know if they are worth considering.
Thanks for any help.
