Hello to everyone
I'm looking for a new vehicle for school/work trip and also for hobbies. My usual trip is around 10 kilometers per day, mostly on plated surfaces. Sometimes I take myself to forest, riding fast and rough paths.
So, I've been wondering which type of bike would suit me the best, a hardtail of fullsuspension? I weight around 220 lbs and I tend to drive fast no matter how rough the terrain is.
Here's a few candidates I've been thinking of:
Trek 8500 2009
Price from local supplier 1800 €.
Trek 8000 2009
Local supplier, 1350 €.
Trek 6700 2008
Local supplier, 1150 €.
Radon ZR RACE 10.0
From abroad, 1899 € plus dispatching costs.
Radon QLT Race 7.0
Abroad, 1599 € plus dispatching costs.
Radon QLT Race 4.0
Abroad, 999 € plus dispatch.
Dispatch costs for Radons are about 55 €. I would need to wait for the bike 2-4 weeks also.
Absolute limit for budget is around 2000 € as I need to get some gear too.
I rode trek 6700, 19,5" size and geometries felt very nice. Can't testride radons since they are one store exclusive bikes.
Opinions on these bikes are welcome, I'm open to other options too as long as they can be ordered inside EU.
