Irrational bike want …. Whats yours?
Been thinking about what bikes I want a lot lately!
As well as my DH race bike I want a specific set-up Enduro race bike – something 160mm travel, slack and mid-weight with a CCDB. Intense Tracer 2 or Yeti SB-66. Something like that!
But then I’d need a lighter trail bike for general riding at trail centres and any XC duties. So something around 120mm. Maybe a carbon Rocky Mountain!!
And to top it off I want a hardtail for muddy winter days and riding on the road up to the local woods for general flat-land rooty, wooded riding days close to home.
I reckon all I need is about £6k.
That’s why it’s my irrational bike want and not likely to happen any time soon…Posted 6 years agowarpcowMember
If most people apparently seem to want one, is it really irrational (rationalising-mode on 🙂 )?
Like many I want a DH bike. I know I’d be lucky to get a week’s worth of riding out of one per year. Something like a Transition TR450. Maybe a TR250 would be more rational?Posted 6 years agoletmetalktomarkSubscriber
Thought spurred from one particular mid week video …..
There are a couple of bikes that I have and irrational want for.
Bikes that I would not get the best from.
Bikes designed for far “knarlier” riding than I am ever going to give them.
Bikes too small for me to ride anyhoo.
Here is a short list of mine – There is a theme …… 😆
What are yours?Posted 6 years agostumpy01Member
I’d like to get one of these frames and build it up as light as possible. Don’t know why:
and after the ‘what is the best 120mm full sus’ thread earlier, I would like one of these too:
Don’t need ’em. Would just like them. Also some kind of fancy road bike would be nice.Posted 6 years agowillardMember
I keep seeing very nice carbon road bikes around the area and in some of the “forbidden” shops (i.e. LBS) and I _want_ one. I can never bring myself to get one though, simply because my Raleigh Pursuit still works, and I have a morbid dislike of having two of something for the same task (apart from with sporks… you can never have too many sporks).
Also, given that I live in Cambridgeshire, a full sus would be pointless. I would still like a carbon Stumpy though.Posted 6 years ago
