Well I collected my bike this afternoon and cycled 18 miles home on it I feels great, and love how you change gear (didnt check when I bought it ) No more thumbs hurting from yanking the thing around to change gear
Very comfy and feels really light and fast. I didnt go fast today (best speed on Garmin was 2:15 mile down hill but took 2 hours to do 17 hilly miles . It was good on the road andcycle track but not good on gravel/bumpy potholecovered tarmac! I was vibrating everywhere lol
Sorry barge back into this thread.
Quick question for FB and O5.
Why are you saying cross bikes can not take the "rough" stuff?
Think what your original MTB looked like Pre-suspension!
Im not after biff, just curious to your stance on it. I got hardtail/full sus and a cross. The cross bike was faster across "The Gap"(becons ultra one) and ive done all routes on afan on one. no problems in anyway.
Just curious thats all. I have done some stupid things on my crossbike. Done some stupid things on my full suss!
Saying that one route around here the DH boys do........................i would not walk down with safty ropes and an ice/mud pick!
I'm just a wimp and like as much comfort as I can get
It simply isn't fun without a bit of give and if you are out for a full day in a MTB park you'd not do a second day on a cross
