£1000 burning a whole in my pocket!
Hi all, I have a budget of £1000 and would like to buy a XC bike pretty near to that price. Can go a bit over and i mean a bit. My main dilema is hardtail or ful-sus. I know with the hard tail i get a lighter bike and maybe a better one for that price. I need to take into account the effect my 14st frame will have on the bike/suspension when riding single track/trail with some road so comfort is factor. I have looked at the suggestions and have seen a few in shops but it's been a while since my Scott racing comp (bought 2nd hand in 1999) gave up the ghost and the range out now is very bewildering and i dont want to be taken in by a bike because it looks 'shiny'. P.S. if it's going to be a hardtail what do you all think of sus seatposts? Appriciate any thoughts.
