    Budget full sus

    What do you think about the Calibre bossnut v2. It looks like a great bike for trail riding and rough terrain. Its retail price is bout 1500 pounds but on the go outdoors site you can get it for only 1000 pounds. Should i get that bike or just buy a hardtail like a Vitus sentier.

    The real answer to the FS/HT debate depends on where and how you like to ride but if you're looking for a budget FS sled the reviews make the Bossnut sound like a reasonable answer. Before spending hard earned cash, decide what you want. Then get that.

    Budget full-sus. I'd rather have a good hard-tail than a budget full-sus in most instances. Especially if a hard-tail will cope with the terrain ok.

    The thing is the calibre bossnut actually retails for 1500 pounds but in the go outdoors store it sells for 1000 pounds so...

    Ok, you got me. If I was looking for a 900 earth-pounds full-sus I reckon I'd be all over that Bossnut. It looks like a well sorted and great value bike.

    It doesn't even look that bad! ;0)
