Change of mind

Postby dirty biker » Mon Oct 08, 2012 13:28 pm

Hi all, I have changed my mind totally on what i want. I'm looking for a bike For under £1000 Hardtail on the cycle 2 work scheme. I have come up with 2 bike that like.

Most of my riding will be at Llandegla trail centre on blue and red till i get better.

@ that price i think its great and i have test ride on it next week oh an i think it looks the mutts nuts.

I also seen this. spec seems very good and made for type of riding i'm going to be doing but i think its a little on the ugly side :)

Whats your opinions please and if any one has one or test rode any can you give me info please.

Kind Regards

Darren

Unless you want a super aggresive HT, the White, if you do, then the 456.

I ride a Whyte 905 (same geometry) and it is great over Llandegla. I think a 120 travel hardtail is perfect there. You may get more bang for you buck elsewhere, but as a trail hardtail the Whyte is a very nice bike.

Can you buy a bike from anywhere you like?

If so - I'd be looking at this for under £700

The Whyte looks like a great bike. Have you checked with the dealer that they'll give it to you at the reduced price with your C2W voucher?

Good stuff. I'd be sorely tempted to go for it in that case. Not all of the dealers will entertain it (as you probably know).
