Hey Guyz and Galz...

 

So my SO is keen on getting a bike, she dont want to spend more then R2500K and I would like something with Front Shox with lock out.

 

I have been told that I could get a Silverback or Giant Boulder or Renegade (think thats what he said)...

 

Any help would be appreciated... what's a good bike to buy?

I once bought a MTB for a GF....sold it a week later..

 

In anycase..the boulder is a good buy. It doesnt have lockout, but I will never trust the lockout in that price range. Otherwise take a look at the trek 3900.

Have to agree on the Boulder . Good bike , not even my laaitie could break it . But for a real good bike .............. get a Raleigh .

Yes..the titans are not bad. Its got a decent lockout fork and its also 24sp. Its sells for about R2100? But I'll rather buy the Boulder, simply because you get a decent warranty.

RM is the model of the bikes . Go to www.raleigh.co.za . The RM would be their XC racing Hardtails , while the RDS would be the Dual Suspension ..... These other funny Raleigh's you get from PicknPay and Makro are great for commuting but not so good for racing .

I would rather swop a girl friend for a Mtb.smiley26.gif   Girl Friends are easier to get,smiley16.gif but are more expensive in the long run (eventually you have to run from them. Women, jealous creatures)   smiley2.gif
