Your next bike
I am generally content with what I have, but with only a 2009 Fisher Big Sur (for the trails) and a 2012 Saracen Urban Studio74 (for the city) to my name, I have been suffering irrepresible bike envy these last number of weeks. I have just decided that my next bike shall be:
Hopefully in the next 12 months.
What will yours be, and when?Posted 3 years agonjee20Subscriber
I’ve been trying to come up with a reason to buy a new road bike for years, but the fact is every spring when I hop on my 10 year old Madone SL I really like it, moreso infact than the (significantly heavier) 5-series Di2 equipped one I rode last year. As such, if I’m going to replace it I’m not too worried by spending quite a bit of money, so I’d like a 7-series Madone:
When? After wedding next spring I suspect, at the earliest!Posted 3 years agofroodMember
I’ve only been waiting for the codeine since November
I’m similar, but been waiting since the first pictures were released last year in Feb! Hoping to see it at the Scottish Bike show next month.
Why? Because I would like a full bouncer again, the spec for the money is unreal and I like big wheels and going downhill fastPosted 3 years agosurroundedbyhillsSubscriber
I have a Giant Reign O but have no idea what to get next or whether I can actually afford something better. My Bikesnob friends kind pooh poo it (cause it’s a Giant) but then bike mechanics keep telling me it is Awesome to the Rad! So i don’t know and am going fret myself silly about it for 12months and then buy this…maybe!

Plan to split and sell two bikes (Genesis Altitude and Turner 5-Spot) and keep being drawn to the Spectral…really hard to ignore the value; a complete, well spec’d bike for the price of a carbon Santa Cruz frame.
I’ll eventually relegate my alloy Synapse to commuter / wet weather / winter hack. I’m hankering after something plastic with Di2 & discs…so like this, but less ball-breakingly expensive!

After a painful few months without a mountain bike I have just ordered a YT Capra Pro
Very excited, just have to wait until summer for delivery, still gives me time to get fitter on the road bike I guess!Posted 3 years agoAlexSimonSubscriber
I’ve absolutely no idea.
Both my current mountain bikes are getting on a bit, so it would be nice to have a modern long travel full sus.
Always prefer frames available separately, and like raw or anodised finishes so for the moment I’ll put op these fine examples:

I have had 2 new bikes in the last year so not really in the “I need new bike mood” but definitely want new parts, try out different things to get them totally dialed.
However every time I see that Codeine, I think now that looks like a bike that will really shred.Posted 3 years agodazhSubscriber
Moving to Todmorden in the summer, which raises the possibility of an off-road commute into Manchester, so I reckon a cx bike is required. I know next to nothing about cx bikes so suggestions would be welcome. That Croix de Fer looks very nice, but I seem to recall they’re quite heavy?Posted 3 years ago_tom_Member
A short/medium travel full suspension bike of some kind. Maximum 160mm up front. I’m trying to get on with a hardtail only but really missed the full sus on the reds and blacks at BPW the other day. Not sure what, maybe a Mega or a Blur LT. I’d like a Spitfire but they’re too expensive for me.Posted 3 years agoKryton57Subscriber
Its about 3 years until my opportunity comes, but then I’ll be replacing my Yeti ASR5 with – based on todays knowledge – an SB75 or the new ‘dale Trigger 27.5 with Supermax.
Although I have found myself drawn to a Surly Krampus at £1365 on Sale but have no intended “place” for it other than it being abit left-field.
