Need some help please. Currently looking for a FS bike. Currently have a Whyte 905 which I love, it is light, climbs brilliantly but is like a bone shaker on the rocky descents you get at some of the trail centres, to the point where my hands ache and lower back is not so good the day after and I'm not getting any younger!!
I have found a Trek EX9 at my local shop that is about 2 months old been used about 3 times and has been traded in by someone with a bad back who has bought a road bike, looks mint and will be £1,800, new ones are about £2100 -£2200 at the moment. Also found a good deal on a Cube AMS 125 for a similar amount.
Anyone got any advice or experience on these bikes or maybe got one having had a Hardtail?
Many thanks in advance
