I have a foxy r 2012 model. Similar suspension design by the looks of it. Great bike and pretty well specced for the price. It climbs great, is light and descends well. For me, it’s a great All-round bike. Heard some negative stories about previous year’s build quality. Kept on top of maintenance with pivots etc and mines running fine a year later.
Been looking for a new bike for a while. Will mainly be riding trail centres with the occasional day in hills (like twice a year). Coming from a Boardman hardtail I would like a more aggressive full sus with something like 130+ travel.
Been looking at the kona Tanuki deluxe 2013 at £1600. Kona Tanuki supreme 2012 £1600, Vitus Escarpe 1 £1600 and also the Mondraker Factor R 2012 £1400
Anyone have anything to say about either of these bikes? Or do I just go for a canyon and get unbelievable spec for money?
