    First full suss 29er???

    Hi all,

    I want to get more into my local trails and single track but I also want be able to ride to them, part XC, part road (about 1.5hrs away). The trails I like are fast and flowy with small kickers and burms.

    I have a hardtail (voodoo bizango) which I use at the moment (love it) but what Iím after is a short travel 29er full susser with lockout on the shock for roads and climbing, £1400 - £1800.

    These are the bikes that look good to me

    Fuji Rakan 1.5
    https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/.../rp-prod179612

    Love the look and spec but canít find any reviews? Does anyone own one or know what it like?


    Vitus Escarpe 29VR
    https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/.../rp-prod179049

    Another great spec but not sure if theyíll ever be stocking them again.


    Canyon Neuron AL 7.0
    https://www.canyon.com/en-gb/mountai...FBK&quantity=1

    More expensive but you do get better suspension.


    Itís really tough when your spending a decent amount of cash and in most cases you canít try before you buy.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated, especially if you have a Fuji Rakan 1.5 2019!

    Cheers,

    Dan.

    My suggestion is buy a XC used maybe Giant, Scott or any that fits you. If you do not like it you can resale with almost no lost. It is like renting to avoid doing a mistake. After 1 to 3 resale you will know the tires, suspension, brakes,,,, that you enjoy/do not enjoy. 100/120 is plenty. Or try HT 120-130 29x2.6. Have fun finding your good match.

    I did think about 2nd hand but you still have to pay over £1000 for a bike you don't really know the history of.

    Love my HT, I just want something with a bit more pop and to soak up the hits better.

    Cheers,

    Dan.
