- What bike are you saving for and why?
Maintaining the current fleet is sucking up the new bike fund at the moment!
As much as I hate to admit it i’m coveting my mates new Scott Genius carbon thing, it’s ridiculously playful and not bad at all going up hill. We’d look a little silly with 3 of us on the same bikes though… As such i’ve been toying with the idea of a Cannondale JekyllPosted 4 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
Might just have to be a geared, disc set up CX, as above. Lots of nice looking tracks and trails to link up around where I am now, and that would seem ideal. Keep getting drawn to the Giants in the LBS…
Just shy of a grand for that. Hmmm. Almost impulse buy territory!
However, this makes me go all tingly…Posted 4 years ago

Officially, none. We have babies and houses and cars and potential emigrations to spend our wages on.
Unofficially, I squirrel away the money I have left at the end of the month in the vain hope that one day I’ll own a Canfield Brothers Yeti. It’s going to take a while…Posted 4 years agocpSubscriber
I nearing completion of the gathering/selling of bits/buying of bits etc… ready for a hopefully rather fetching Anthem X 29er. For general big days out & xc racing.
A build loosely based around a starting point of an Anthem X4 complete bike, is pretty much only going to be the frame which is from the complete bike and some bits from a donor bike… It got a bit out of hand though and is being blinged up a bit 🙂
Really looking forward to getting it built for several reasons….
First full sus for 11 years, it’s been hardtail and fully rigid since.
First use of 10 speed on an mtb (and it’s 1×10)
First use of clutch rear mechs…
I didn’t ride much last summer due to work… I’m very much hoping this summer will be as nice and I can actually get out more.Posted 4 years agobinnersSubscriber
I really really really want one of these…
… for the commute, which can incorporate some interesting off-road routes. The self-justification has been underway for quite some time. Somethings going to have to go though. The hardly-ever-used full suss might be on the way out. This would get considerably more usePosted 4 years ago
Oh. Accidentally watched a couple of fatbike vids last night too, and thought that might be more fun in a forest than I’d imagined (not just snow and beaches).
Looks like on-one have sold a few to Germany. Couple of random vids off the net and they’re all local to here.Posted 4 years agoD0NKSubscriber
I want to try big wheels (proper big wheels not the pretend ones) so a lightish 29er, maybe hardtail maybe short FS, not got a particular in mind really (tho this would be nice) scouring the classifieds but they are all too big, too small or silly BB standards.
That ATR looks like what I should have bought instead of the crosslight – but for 3 times the money, ah well.Posted 4 years ago
