Hunt around for demos, you can try a few different bikes in real conditions. And some shops will deduct what you spent on demo hires from the price of a bike you buy from them. Or just use it to help you chooseYes, Pushys Canberra. Didn't know they had demos and the guy didn't offer. Will ask next time I'm there.
These guys too:Yes, Pushys Canberra. Didn't know they had demos and the guy didn't offer. Will ask next time I'm there.
These look good...If you can afford the Trance, buy it, you’ll love it. But if you do decide to get a hardtail, don’t buy a 71HA XC bike, get something a little slacker. That way, you’ll be able to ride the same knarly trails that you could on the Trance.
Easy as, the continue downhill bit is harder though.If you watch Josh Bender do a drop or two, you will see how easy it is.
5 to 10 metre jumps are easy, I run through them in my mind all the time, one day I may actually try it in the real world
