Plenty of hot new bikes around this year.

Which ones have you got yourself lined up for?

Plenty of bikes this year that cost more than last and are a lower specification did you mean?

None anyway, I buy parts not bikes, much cheaper, the only parts now left on my bike from when it was first built are the headset and rear mech hanger!

I'm going to build my own hard tail this year, as above newer bikes are coming out with lower specs for the same or more money

New road bike - Planet X N2A
Then assorted bits for the other bikes, stuff like new brakes, wheels, mechs etc just to keep them fresh.

Plus the usual consumables, grips, tyres etc.

What they said ^^^^

I usually buy a frame and end up changing most of the parts over 3-4 years, have had a new frame for each of the last two years so I think I'm due a steady year :lol:

Having said that CRC sales and the likely hood of going back to uni accommodation next year (and the rent-free summer that goes with it!) could mean a few nice changes over the summer :)

Presumably trying to drum up business for Bike Leasing Company, so for that reason, mind your own business.

If someone wants to buy a kidney (I have 3) then it would be a Norco A-Line or something similar.
Other than that I may upgrade my Clockwork or have a go at building a dirt jump/beginners downhill bike from scratch.
