So I've been riding Hardtails all my life and never had the urge to get a full susser and tbh been quite happy ....and then the arms race started!(and I'm going to get a windfall from selling my car to re-join the company car scheme).
I'm actually thinling not just about the technical ability but also comfort for long XC rides too.
So I was offerred a Lappiere Spicy by a work colleague for £800 little used. This seems good but its a bit more bike than I was bargaining for. I want something that I can climb and decend on for long days.
Having never ridden a full suspension bike what am I looking for? Is the Spicy actually a good climber and decender or would the zesty be a better option.
I'm tempted by the orange 5.
Thoughts, opinions and downright biased plugging all welcome.
