Some quick advice.

Looking to buy first MTB in many many years. Light roadie racer and occasional cyclo cross racer (64kg) looking to have fun off road in the winter (South Downs) and possibly tackle some cross country MTB racing.

Keen on either whyte 905 or orbea alma H10 - any opinions or ideas on light hardtails <£1700?

Thanks.

  • I like the look of the Grand Canyon. Do you ride one?

    My wife has got an AL 8.0W and really likes it, good components, well built, light, rides like a dream.

    Custom build based on an On-one Whippet frame?

    You'll be hard pushed to find a lighter frame for the money and 1700 will put a very svelte build together.
