    Hi all, new member here.
    Im just mulling over a possible bike swap and am interested to hear your views. I currently have an Orange Crush 08 model (6 months old)and am considering px-ing it for a Spesh Pitch Pro. what do you think? I like the idea of full sus as some of the rocky trails bash me about a bit! Also looking at the pitch I’m thinking I could break it? The rear sus linkage doesnt look the most heave duty for a 14 1/2 stone rider?
    Your thoughts on this would be appreciated.
    Cheers

    Isn’t the consensus that a single pivot design (Heckler, Orange 5 etc) is more suited to the heavier rider. But TBH I’m not sure you qualify as a heavier rider. Spesh Pitch Pros are supposed to be the bargain of the century – apprently.

    Apparently so, they just seem to good to be true if you know what I mean!

    Sounds good, would you trade a Crush in for one? Cant afford to have both unfortunately.

    I weigh around 16 stone and haven’t broken mine yet in 5 months of clumsily hammering it around the lake district.

    It would probably be unkind of me to point out that you could have got one last night from dales cycles for 939 quid – but the 20 percent offer is finished now. 😈

    So is everywhere, even Evans…they reduced the RRP. Amateur 😉

    You’ve missed the 20% off at Dales offer but the Cyclestore still has them at 15% off! Clicky here
