Here's the thing... I've got two bikes and I'm happy with both of them. I've got a Blur 4X with a 120-160 55 and a c456 HT with a 150mm 44.
However.... in the summer I'm planning a 4/5 day ride around the Alps. I don't fancy riding the B4X uphill for half of a 4 day trip and I don't fancy riding a HT downhill in the Alps day after day.
So..... what is the best bike for everything? I want something that climbs like a jaguar, descends like a rhino and is light enough to put on my back if the pushing turns into carrying.
I like my B4X so similar suspension would be appreciated. But every £1 spent on bike is a £1 I could spend on post-ride beer so less £ is better.
Your suggestions please.
