Should I get a Trek EX8 or live without carpet & get a Zesty 514?
I remember a viz top tip which reccomended that you just fasten two squares of carpet to your feet for that luxury carpet feel, without the expense.
Maybe that’s a go-er.

Hehe, I like the carpet square idea, but with visitors it could get pricey!
I haven’t ridden either yet – I just love the look/idea of the Zesty (dangerous I know). I’ve got a demo of the Zesty booked, but I don’t really want to take it if I can’t afford it and have to go for the Trek… there is the possibility I’d perfer the Trek but can I take that risk?!
unfortunately the floor boards are awful!Posted 8 years agoziwiMember
If you like the zesty and can’t afford the 514, why not go for the 314, its a better colour (well it is white may be fashionable now but it won’t be in a week or two), the important things like forks, brakes etc are all good, you can upgrade other stuff later. Saying that I have a trek EX9.5 but got it for a bit of a bargainPosted 8 years ago
Apparently part of being a grown up is not spending ALL your money on bikes…
So I’m thinking of getting the Trek EX8 wsd – still a good bike a I’m sure, but… before I was thinking ‘sensibly’ I sort of set my heart on the Zesty 514L…
So what do you think? Will I regret missing out on the Zesty and therefore never fully love the Trek as I should – or will I regret living without carpet and sort-furnishings more? (And actually once riding love the Trek and forget all about the Zesty?)Posted 8 years ago
Thanks guys, I’m going to be properly sensible this time and take Cinnamon girl’s and Sharki’s advice and go and try a load. I think I’ll probably have to take Sharki’s other piece of advice first though and set a budget beforehand – otherwise trying certain bikes could be dangerous!
I’ll start with the Trek as soon as I can find somewhere to demo one, and CG I think I will try and demo a Juliana so will probably be in touch. Oh and as for the concrete floors and ti frame as an ornament – now that is classy!
Thanks again everyone and I’ll try not to bother you until I’ve ridden at least one! MMPosted 8 years ago
