Hi Im looking to buy a new bike pref a hard tail as im not really into the full sus thing.
have a few in mind, either,
genesis core 50,
orange crush 2010,
cube ltd team rx,

but im not really sure yet, really like the long travel of the orange. the bike is going to be used for mostly hitting the local trails and going to and from work.

anyone got any other suggestions.

    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    If your thinking of the longer travel fork, take a look at the On One 456, you have a choice of build...but the standard at £999 (£100 cheaper that the Crush) has a choice of Fox Float 32 RL or Revelation Race Dual air...the groupset and brakes are as good as well, plusn you can change the spec and upgrade as you wish...the frame is reviewed in this weeks MBUK and goty great marks for quality and value.
