Mate of mine broke 2 frames in the space of a year… first snapped at the bottom bracket in dalby forest… going up hill 😉 and the second frame snapped on the rear stay… was given carbon one for his third and all the bearing went in that frame!!! def crap bike and scott were not very helpful.Posted 8 years ago

Why buy 2nd hand with 2k to spend?
Trek Fuel EX9, Rush Carbon, Remedy, Roscoe, Marin,Larpiere, Spesh.. The list is endless
You can get a decent full sus with full warranty and decent components for that! Full warranty on shocks, brakes…Posted 8 years ago
Chances are if its on ebay it will probably be knackered!
thanks tails that sounds about the best thing to do.iv,e had a spesh xc pro for 12 months now and i feel my riding has got braver and more bold so i think it,s time for a more burly stronger bike with a bit more travel.the list is going throgh my head already.cheers budPosted 8 years agotailsMember
the list is going throgh my head already.
i think thats the problem with bike companies these days there all so bloody good, it really does come down to colour and price. in the past say you were buying a hardcore hardtail you had a choice of santa cruz chameleon, spooky, identiti now every brand makes one. My personal choice (bearing in mind i have never ridden full sus) would be a cannondale rush.Posted 8 years agoiamtheresurrectionSubscriber
Got to agree with the above Rob. If you’ve got 2.5k to spend, then get yourself into a decent local shop and buy new. Plenty of choice. Don’t even think about spending that much on a second hand bike until you’re a bit more experienced and know what to look for and how much to pay for it. I hope that doesn’t sound arsey, I mean that in the nicest way 🙂Posted 8 years agoCountZeroMember
Not sure if it’s still there, but IIRC John’s Bikes on Bath have a Trek Remedy for around the £1800 mark. Stunning bike, you really couldn’t get much better. My mate Sean has hammered one all over Wales and the Forest of Dean and has nothing but good words for it. They’re on 01225 334633.Posted 8 years ago
