- Why buy a Spec Pitch? Tell me
I’m after a 2nd bike – one that can be a bit more of a hooligan on the Welsh trail centres and the Mendips / Quantocks in the drier months. I quite fancy an Orange 5 but for almost half the money I can get a Pitch Pro. They get rave reviews. Are they that good. One of my fears (except the obvious one as to why would anyone want a turd brown bike) is that I had a Spec FSR XC Pro a couple of years ago and didn’t get on with it. It broke way too easily. 5 or Pitch?Posted 9 years agoforge197Member
What broke on the XC Pro?
Had a couple of Fives over the years, just got a Pitch Comp seems to be a good a bike early indidcations are good. The Pitch I think will be better, but I need to ride the Pitch more to confirm. It would probably be better still when/if I replace the rear shock with a RP23 to get rid of the X-Fusion.Posted 9 years agoBoardinBobSubscriber
Evans have the medium in stock in their sale
Had a shot on a Pitch Pro on Saturday after I got talking to an owner in the car park at Carron Valley. He let me have a pedal around the car park. Even from that short ride, it felt lovely.Posted 9 years agoDAVE66Member
Point is, there are few bikes that will climb like it does and let you descend in a fast controlled manner that this bike does too… (At this Price point)
Myself an Steve_b77 bought ours “pre-hype” so unfortunately paid the full whack but was still worth that. So buy one at the current price and get a bargain.
On the brain evolution note: Don’t know much about that but perhaps I’ve learned to climb reasonably well in the 20 years I’ve been doing this sport.Posted 9 years ago
Brains dont get you up hills, legs certainly do 🙂
