Which new bike

Postby tifferz » Fri Jun 01, 2007 11:57 am

I have just had my previous bike stolen so I am in the market for a new bike. My previous bike was a 2006 Marin Wolfridge (which I had only had for 7 months). I enjoyed the bike but thought I should consider other options, espcially as the 2007 model now costs œ2K.

I have got it down to 2 choices :-

1. A 2007 wolfridge.

2. Specialized Stuntjumper Elite.

I do mainly Xc riding around yorkshire dales & peak district. Going to Glentress for 1st time in a couple of weeks & then Chamonix at the end of June.

Any opinions greatly appreciate

May the Forks be with you

i would agree on the lightness of the front end.

wondered if the sj would take as much of a battering as the wr given that wr is "all mountain" compared to sj which is xc

SJ is AM too... Spesh have the Epic as their XC bike... I guess they might market it as a XC/AM bike, but just so they can sell the Enduro as a proper AM bike... Crafty people, them marketing trolls [;)]

You'll have a blast on a Stumpy FSR - also - prices are falling -you can get an Expert for the price of an elite.
