Beginner looking for advice


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm looking to start riding, mainly trails, and need to buy a bike. I have a budget around R6,5k. I've come across the Silverback stride delight, Avalanche Reflex 2 and Titan rogue nova as possible options.

Can I please get some advice on what the best purchase would be?? 

Thanks in advance!!

Between the three I would look at the Titan and Silverback. Both are about the same thing but the Titan looks a tad better spec wise.

Make sure you get your size 100% right. 

Happy trails.

Yeah, @Brad01m how tall are you? It impacts the wheel size. Get a sweet used 26er if you're a shorty apparently.

 

Of your choices I'd go Titan.

At that height get a large frame. Wheel size doesn't know how tall you are

I'd go for the Titan... They have better resale values than the other brands you mentioned

Get a sweet used 26er above a crappy 29er, no matter how tall or short you are...

 

I'd also go for the Titan out of those choices.

Just let the 26ers die already :D :D :D
