I have been off the bike recently and now fancy getting back into riding. I think part of the problem is that I have never felt that inspired by my current bike (Cannondale hardtail), so have been less inclined to go riding. I think part of the problem is it is quite a harsh bike to ride and I've never felt that confidence in the level of front wheel grip. I used to love my old Rockhopper before the 'dale.
I'm now thinking that getting a new bike could help - what 'fun' bikes can everybody recommend? I had thought about a full suss, but I'm not sure just because I'm thinking it could be expensive to get a good one. Budget - maybe £1k (including resale of my current bike)
Any suggestions gratefully received
