Hi All,

I would like your advice! I am currently looking at 3 bikes as possible new rides.

They are:

2017 Scott Spark 710 Plus
2017 Whyte T130 CRS
2016 Santa Cruz 5010 cc XT with BOS 140mm AM fork (Ex-Demo)

All bikes are in Large size. I am 5ft 11inches and weigh around 98kgs. I plan to demo them all (although the Whyte demo bike is in non carbon RS form).

I am getting back into MTB after quite few years, but my main riding will be trails such as Swinley Forest, following trails in the countryside etc, although i would like a bike that can cope at bike parks in Wales occasionally. I would also like to use the bike for a longer ride 1 to 2 times a year such as coast to coast. I will never ride really extreme stuff (i'll never be that good!).

Thoughts welcome!
