  1. Hi all, I have always wondered if a large frame 27.5 would be similar to a medium frame 29er. basically, I fit a 29er medium frame perfectly but am looking to ungrade. All i can find are large frame 27.5s. Would this serve me the same or close to? (I am 173cm) Many Thanks
  2. Hi everyone and thanks for making this site so helpful. I'm looking to spend around 10-12k on a hardtail. I have my eye on a new GT Zaskar Sport 2017. Can anyone share their thoughts on this model or its components? It does seem like a great value for money bike (considering it's new). What do you think? I'm a novice who will mainly use it on the tracks around table mountain and for commuting occasionally. I'm not planning on racing or doing anything majorly technical. But I do want something that offers a solid base to build on or to resell in time. Some people have warned me to stay away from GT and that they have a poor resale value. And I've had others say the exact same thing about Silverback (and the opposite about GT). It's hard to find an objective opinion. Most people seem to have higher budgets and are quick to shoot down brands or ranges pitched at a lower price point. I guess I just want to feel confident I'm not being a total idiot in going this direction. But by all means, tell me if+why I am.. The 2nd hand option really does seem more reasonable but I wouldn't know where to start and how to evaluate a bike competently. For example, there is a Silverback Sola 2 (i think 2014) going for 8.9k. Is it worth the risk or would you rather go for a new bike? Thanks for your help, Mintman
  3. Hi there, Still searching for an upgrade and was wondering if you guys could help regarding size. I have ridden Trek both Medium and Large frames before. I called a local cycling shop and asked them about a Medium frame. They suggested I should be on a large as most my height are? I have done 2 online bike fits one more advanced one and one based on height and actual inseam. The one website said 17.5" bikes up to 19 at largest and the more advanced one gave me more measurements. Based on standover height, virtual top tube length and my height 1.79m if I went for a Trek or Giant I would be around a Medium (when looking at the bikes Geometry). 1.79 height Actual Inseam 79.8cm Arm 57.8 Lower leg 53.2 and thigh 58.2 My standover height should be between 75.9 and 77.45 and virtual top tube length 58.1 and 59.1cm. The bikes iv been looking at were the Trek Superfly 9.8, Giant Anthem 27.5 (older model) Older Stumpjumper but think I would like 27.5 better. Calling the shop just threw me off as I'm looking at getting a second hand bike from gumtree or here. Thanks for the advice! Sean
