- What would you buy for ~£1400?
Ok, so my Yeti was stolen… 🙁
But the insurance company are paying out 😀
So I get a new bike! I think I want a hardtail, something light for all day riding and adventure racing, quite like the idea of 2×10, tubeless, not a 29er. Looking at around £1400, and so far have found:
2011 Whyte 905
On One Whippet X9 Carbon
2011 Cube Reaction Race
Cannondale Flash F1
Scott Scale 40

From your list: Whytes are nice to own and ride. Great backup etc. Not had a 905 – but a 19.
As for off the wall / fantasy : what about one the German brands?
The carbon version (albeit twice the price) reviewed here:
Rose also do their own brand stuff that also looks great value.Posted 6 years ago
I ride a Zesty and a Cotic and both are great fun
The Zesty really is a ‘do it all very quickly’ type of bike which i’ve raced a few times
It goes up hill better than my old hard tail, is very comfortable and is incredible on the DHs. It suits me well for away rides to proper hills
The Cotic is a wonderful playbike which i’ve also raced. its just as fast down most of the tracks around the Surrey Hills as the Zesty. I’d prefer my Zesty on an epic ride thoughPosted 6 years ago
