Biking.ie rent the Vitus Escarpe if you wanted to try one out. I rented one on Sunday in Ballinastoe, very capable bike.

Jeffsey's are on good discount now (S and M models only AFAIK). Only 29" though.

I'm tempted. But I'm leaning towards a 27.5. That could change tomorrow though...

Yep. Got a deal I couldn't refuse. Somewhat over budget. But hey it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission sometimes

great stuff! No better feeling than getting a new bike! Think about wrapping it up in a protective foil. I should have done it but never did. Looking forward to seeing this beast

Lovely bike. First thing I would do is get rid of the Nobby Nics. The front washes out too easily with them. Dont ask me how I know.

You know what I have come to that conclusion myself actually. Have had two fairly big spills since I got it. Both were completely out of the blue front wheel just disappeared. Wrecked my stanchion too.
Anyone recommend a good replacement ? Cheers
