2014 sales...

So I'm about ready to buy my first full bouncer...

I was looking at spending about £2000-2500. 29'er, with a dropper post - They were my basic requirements. I'm quite tall so also need a 22'' + sized frame.

I just found this, which would have been perfect, especially given the price;

http://www.leisurelakesbikes.com/p/1399 ... -2014-sale

Only thing is, they don't have any 22'' sized frames in stock.

Can anyone make any other suggestions, or know of any other websites that stock such things at discount?

Cheers.

    Most XL frames are only 21" anyway, so you'll struggle to find something that big. How tall are you? Geometry is more important than the declared frame size.

    Also the volumes of the XL bikes sold is far lower, so the chances of finding one in the sales is correspondingly lower.

    I'm 6'8''... Currently have a 23'' framed Trek hardtail, which is fine.

    One of the few bikes which does fit the bill (Price, 29'er & dropper post) and is available in 23'' is this;

    But then that's more XC... Ideally I'd like something AM, with a bit more travel.

    I'm open to suggestions :)
