Downgrading my bike….?
I’ve had a Yeti 575 for 18 months now and it’s a great bit of kit and will do anything I want, which is what I required when I bought it. It’s light enough to ride the Trans Wales on, and burly enough for some big rocks. The (carbon) back end is a bit flexy, though.
A few months after I bought it, the Specialized Pitch came out.
Now, I’d have not bothered with the Yeti if I’d seen the Spesh first and saved myself a grand or so. I forgot all about this until recently. Now I’ve seen The Pitch Pro for sale for Â¬Â£997.89 and I’m seriously thinking of Ebaying the Yeti, pocketing a few (hundred) quid and getting a Pitch.
Yes yes, it’s not as light but I don’t need that anymore. I have a SS for short local rides, a 140mm forked geared hardtail for longer rides, and the more burly Pitch would be perfik for trail centre days out and 2 planned trips to The Lakes and the Portes du Soleil this year.
And I wouldn’t be so concerned with breaking it, either…….

Aye![yes]. In fact upgraded Had a boring blue mountain bike with motorbike wheels in orange plus other orangy bits Nice to look at yet was like a slug on the road Eventually many years later bought a Land Rover G4 Challenge [Tangiers orange] double suspension/double disc expedition mountain bike for roughly the same amount of money Do it! Have both now, nice to look at and a nice ride too!Posted 7 years ago
