So last bike I bought is 4 years old now. I've hardly used it, in fact it’s only been on proper singletrack once in the last two years, kids and running / road biking are to blame.
Anyhow, I used to be a total kit whore, changing cranks, wheels or brakes at the blink of an eye. I could recite the shimano groupsets in ascending order or price etc. Now I know nothing really, but I am interested in getting back into mtb with a move to Yorkshire and wondered how much the tech has moved on
So this is what I have, 2008 Sram X9, Avid Juicy 7 and Hope Pro 2 wheels. I changed the forks to fox F120s. How much of this kit is now old hat? The changes from 2004 to 2008 were quite obvious, have things moved again or plateaued
