yeah maybe if it comes down to it I'll have t stick with the 26" and have done with it. does anyone know what Suntour XCM LO forks are like? I know they come on a lot of bikes as standard but is it worth looking at a bike with them on? I know some people obviously get on with them fine but I've seen a bike with the same frame as some £900 bikes so the option to upgrade if I went with that is there whilst still having a frame that is maybe slightly better for the time being and having to put up with the forks ect. Confusing this bike stuff is!
Riding will primarily be red/Black runs, not jumping 30ft jumps with a double backflip in between but again not meandering along a canal path. It basically needs to be good enough for me to be able to thrash it about (nothing like a pro, but you get the idea) if you're familiar with the area then it'll mostly be up haldon forest
