Here we go again... steeling myself for a new purchase after faffing about with a few ideas in true MTB style
Having ridden a Whtye 829 (thanks to Variflex) and fallen in love I'm looking for options. LBS has one left (in the right size) but as I'm in no rush and rather enjoy making myself squirm with indecision lets have it, what do you recommend?
Setting £1,500 as my upper limit and definitely want a bike that's more trail than XC, if that makes sense. Needs to be capable thrown downhill.
 by downhill read - riding fast down fun and sometimes technical singletrack, not DH tracks.
