- £4.5k to spend on a bike……………..what would you buy…
on one bike only?
Not sure I could spend that much, even if I had it!
I'd be inclined to be a couple, probably an Intense Slopestyle tricked out with Fox 36s and some lightweight kit, which would speak for about £3k, and the rest on a nice steel hardtail. Though I've got one of the latter already actually!Posted 8 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Oooh, I think I'd have a Cotic Soda, XTR & Hope throughout, an off road tandem and a really nice handmade tourer.
Have you had a look at Ellis Briggs in Shipley Ton?Posted 8 years ago
Recently phoned round a few places enquiring about tourers (Hewitt, Mercian etc) but Briggs seemed the most accommodating and helpful, good bit cheaper than the others as well.langyMember
Like Nuke, a 1.8 – 2.5k bike would be plenty for me; the rest on a few kick arse weeks riding in places I otherwise wouldn't be able to would be the real fun bit.
Or even keep what I have, add a few upgrades (Fork, Wheelset, nothing else really needs changing, and spend 4k on even more/longer trips away.
After all the riding is the fun bit, the bike is just a means to do it!Posted 8 years ago
