Dual Suspension for Wife

Hi all, 

 

Hope everyone is well and all the best for 2021. 

 

I am looking at a MTB for the wife, it has taken some convincing but she finally agreed to give it a go. 

 

Here is the conundrum, I want to get her a dual suspension to make the ride, especially on some gravel better, but I dont want to spend to much if she does not take a liking to biking. 

 

What I have seen is that I will probably not get a dual suspension for under R24k or am I looking at the wrong shops?

 

Thanks,

I had a quick look but the thing that will drive her nuts is the scratches on a 2nd hand bike based on what I have seen, but will work through the adds in detail this evening and see if there is anything decent. 

 

Why don't you check the used ones here in buy&sell ?

Actually I dont think another R2k will break the bank, this looks like a great option and can always be sold again if she kinda does not take a liking to riding, 

I think you will easily sell the Titan, depending on the size.

Or you could buy this for 22..

 

11.5kg Carbon 29er Lefty MTB (Small) | Bike Hub

 

I have bought 3 mountainbikes for my wife so far,

 

cheap carbon hardtail (was a good start to test the waters)

f/s 120/650 pyga - excellent bike for handling, but people we rode with started pointing out it was heavy and not a 29er, and then it was doomed :@

scalpel - 29er and ticked the box of being light weight. I've had her on wider tyres for stability, but otherwise a fairly racey build.

 

I would recommend the second hand options despite your reservations on second hand bikes

looks cool but isn’t it a little bit overshot?

Thanks for the below, 

 

Apologies, I am based in Centurion so Jhb and Pta is no issue to go to any of the cycle shops.
