New Bike Comparison..

Postby J_asonR » Sun Jan 06, 2013 18:06 pm

Hi Guys.

So I've been on this forum for a while now, started off commenting and posting and just gone back into my shell and been looking through all of your conversations etc..

Basically I've found these two bikes which are similar priced and look, to me, to be fairly decent. All I need is a few ideas on which one may be the best to go for..

I'm looking to be doing XC stuff and mainly the C2C later on this year. (I've been training on a bike that's too small for me, so this will be a much needed upgrade.)

Thanks in advance for your help.

The boardman if I had to pick between those two. But the Radon Team 7.0 from bike-discount.de is a good shout at that price!

The Boardman is more XC, the Voodoo more hardore and a lot heavier. For what you want to do the Boardman makes the most sense.
