- New 120-140mm trail 29er hardtail
As the title suggests, it is my favourite time of the (3) year(ly) (interval) when I have paid my bike off, have equity and the Mrs shines the light of acceptance on a new bike!!!
So I have a Crush and really like it but fancy a new bike. I have convinced and unconvinced myself I need a full suss trail bike instead I am buying the bike I feel I should be actually riding.
So I love my Crush and loved my Scale so thinking a love child of the two would be great.
I have narrowed this down to a Stanton Sherpa with some good kit on it £3k ish, would love a titanium but can not stomach the extra cash.
Is there owt I should be looking at too?
Thanks in advance.Posted 4 weeks agoshortbread_fanylionSubscriber
140mm forks will be too much for a Sherpa. Run 120mm on mine and it’s superb – very capable downhill with a decent big front tyre, wide bars etc but all day pedalable. Superb all round bike. If you fancy running longer forks try the switch9er – it’s got much longer reach too.Posted 4 weeks ago
