I really don't need a new bike…do I?….?
ok, thanks Hugor. I’ll see if i can find a way to hop on one for a test ride.
Now thanks looks sweet. I’ll check them out on the Knolly site. I spot quite a few bearings on that thing! Although judging from the Cacti you ride somewhere less muddy than me?
So what SC do you ride then? opinions?Posted 5 years ago
Having found a bike which doesn’t implode once a year, and turn into a buch of useless aluminium tubes over the slightest obstacle (Spesh SX 2005) i thought i would never need/want to change my frame again.
BUT, here i am wondering about a new bike. It might just be boredom, or a wonder over new angles/linkages/shocks etc, but i cant shake the feeling i need to BUY BUY BUY.
So, its got to be 150-170mm travel. I would be hard pushed to move away from a ‘proper’ four-bar design but am open to all possibilities.
Thing that got me looking was a rather nice Nicolai AM, with lovely bright colours and possibilites as bad as my own tastes. I would love to have a gearbox bike, but only in about 3-5 years when the market has matured/is reliable.
Paradoxically, when i bought my SX i had to be careful with money but lusted after a much more expensive machine. Now, i am older and richer…. money need not be the definative issue.
I’m an idiot right? i dont need a new bike.

Not mine mate. I have a blur LTc. I like it very much but different people have different tastes. I could go on and on (and bore you to death) but I’ll just say that it’s the best bike I’ve ever ridden.Posted 5 years ago
Oh and the Knolly bearings are about as high spec as you can get. The bikes designed for loamy canadian rainforest.
