I’d consider the Rumblefish. I’m not a fan of the Fox fork and the rear shock needed setting up for my weight by Mojo but otherwise I’m very happy with mine. It has been well used over the last two years in all conditions covering over 1000 miles in the process with no issues.Posted 4 years agoChainlineSubscriber
Good geo on that there Remedy, short enough stays, good head angle, good shock curve, BB height is about right..hard to criticise really. As long as the bouncy bits and wheels are good your away…
Norco Shinobi if you can get one. It’s discontinued as Norco have gone 27.5 mad but a few are cropping up used in good nick. Ride really well and well reviewed by pretty much everyone, very much a dark horse in my view.Posted 4 years agorene59Member
Specialized Camber 29er frame for £500?
or in carbon for £1000
or Stumpjumper 29er for £650Posted 4 years agorene59Member
Having previously had a Rumblefish I would have one over the Camber 29er that I had on test for a week. Both were good bikes but the Rumblefish edged it. Now on a Stumpjumper 29er I built up which has been great so far.
There are great offers on the Rumblefish at the minute, but it has been dropped this year by Trek as they now have the Fuel as a 29er, so if you leave it too long you may lose out!Posted 4 years ago
The tallboy fir the missus should be dispatched on Monday, there was a delay due to the paint finish not passing final inspection, we saw the pics and it was nothing to worry about but they promised to replace the frame when the next one in that colour comes in to the country. Can’t fault that can you.Posted 4 years ago
Have you looked at Rocky? Does anyone bring them into the UK?Posted 4 years ago
Rode the Element and it was a nice bike (for a short travel XC bike) someone demoed it back to back with an epic, both good but the Rocky was more fun with the epic being race focused (harsh ride) options of Alloy/Carbon Front with alloy rear and full carbon frames.
