I'm sorry, I was wrong.
There I’ve said it. For years now I have been blathering on about a turner highline being a perfectly good all day do it all bike. I guess part of the reason being that it was my only offroad bike so it had to be!Posted 5 years ago
I’ve now built a second hand frame up into a five and five all mountain thing which I rode for the first time the other day.
Oh how wrong I’ve been, lively and flighty and lovely on the climbs, I felt fitter than I have done for the last few years even though I was starting with a chest infection. A real revelation.
Having said all that the highline is mega good fun going down stuff and I love the point and shoot nature of its suspension, that is a real hoot. So I’m now a jammy bit with two full sus bikes.
scott, i have a BIG bouncy bike, i thought it was the dogs cos it was me only bike.Posted 5 years ago
i now have a lighter bike with more modern geometry and i now find i’m fitter/faster/more capable up hill than i was.
jota, i wasn’t wrong i just didn’t know any better. it was a financially driven decision too, i could afford one bouncy bike but nothing else, a danger of working in the bike industry!
now i have a proper job as well i can afford something newer, ish.
scott, hope that makes sense.
