    New Bike Needed

    I aint new, i just have no idea when it comes to spec really.

    I had a mongoose Teocali Elite, with a couple of upgrades, i.e. the shock and pedals... But it got nicked .... so i need a new bike from the insurance money...

    I have upto 1,200 to spend (minus pedals as the insurance pays out seperatly for my spd's and accessories)...

    So i would like some recommendations as the bike to get...

    I have a couple of bike stores near me....

    the best one being:
    http://www.jejamescycles.co.uk
    (which is probably the shop iwould purchase from)

    Also i was considering some bikes at www.wiggle.co.uk

    The bike i was looking at was Specialized Pitch FSR Comp ...

    Does anyone have any better suggestions based on this info .... Oh btw, i do XC and all mountain stuff ... mainly a bit of everything ....

    Thanks in advance

    Go to those shops and test ride all the bikes in your price range and style. Pick whichever fits best.
    SS is like beer...its an acquired taste.

    "A Fifth of Yager, a four pack or Red Bull, and a full suspension mountain bike, now thats quite a combo."
