I want a bike for exercise, a bike i'll ride from my front door. It'll be for days where i dont want to sling the bike in the car, it'll be for the grottier weather too.
I have the 6" full sus that gets used when the riding warrants it (uplifts/big hills/DH etc), but feels like a big waste where i currently live if i ride from the front door. Had peak district on the door step before, now living in guildford, i have all the army land (pirbright/mytchett/deepcut) to ride in, the hills are obviously a lot smaller and the ground is a lot smoother. I hate carrying around all that suspension doing nothing, also pointlessly clocking up miles on it in foul weather seems like a massive waste.
Do i want?
