2K Budget help me out..

Postby mervzila » Thu Nov 01, 2012 15:13 pm

Hi All,

Not an imaginative post by ant stretch but i could really do with some input.

My 10 year old bike is getting on now it's time for change.

Budget is £2000 so looking for something around that.

So far The Enigma range and the Van Nicholas are catching my eye as i see titanium as an all year bike solution allthough i'm not ruling out carbon either.
Does anyone have any advice or suggestions from Condor bikes?

Thanks in advance

£2k would get you this and a quality wheelset.

There's a few VN's that come in under 2k, the Mistral, Ventus and Chinook all come in your budget. The Mistral and Chinook get good reviews, i'm not sure about the Ventus but like the rest of the VN range it looks good for the price. I expect you've probably looked there already but check out Fat Birds if you haven't already http://www.fatbirds.co.uk/. As for the VN Euros from Planet X it's ruined by the fork, that just looks hideous.

i personally may be building a ti bike and buying a frame this weekend. while the price is good for that euros the fork is unforgivable!!! have a look on fat birds there are plenty under budget there, plus i think if you rang them they would happily build you something.enigma are very very nice but under 2k pretty much no chance!
