Right I've found two bikes local to me within budget
One is a 2009 trek session 88
The other is a cube hanzz sl
Both kitted with fox forks fox rear springs
I just want to know what is a better bike
I'm swaying towards the cube as I will ride some uphill too but I need some advice from somebody who has maybe had experience with both?
Thanks

  • Can you give more detail on specs, i.e. what fox forks and shocks, brakes, drive train etc.

    And there was me thinking this was some kind of crush injury thread!
  • If there both stock I would go for the cube because of the brakes and drivetrain.

    The Cube isnt a downhill bike and its not a particularly good bike either. The Session is ok.
    If you want to ride uphill you wont want a downhill bike.
