Silverback Alpine 2


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


Does anyone have any comments about the Silerback Alpine 2. I can get it for about R5500.


It is entry level, however will the components/ frame last for about 3-5yrs?

I got my Alpine 2 in April this year and so far I really love it.


It looked at the time like the best available specs for the price.

Is it worth it to rather consider the Alpine 1? or for that matter, what bike would resemble similar componets to the Alpine 2 for about R5500?

If I remember correctly, the Alpine 1 was about half a kilo lighter for a R1K more, so if you're a weight weenie... ;) , and of course, most of the drivetrain components are one level up.


The reason I settled on the Alpine 2 was that it was the cheapest bike with an air fork (as opposed to a coil one, which is apparently less stable), while the Alpine 1's fork is not that different from the Alpine 2's (in my own noob opinion!).
