Moving to full suss
#1
Im looking at getting a full suss bike to ride trails with and using my hardtail as a commuter which im in process of doing...

So what bike should i get and where from?

My price limit is about a grand i think.

suggest you scour the sales for a bargain or check the classifieds. A grand wont get you much when it comes to a new full suss, you would be better spending it on another hardtail.

You can easily get a full suss for a grand or less on stw. Question first is what kind of travel you are looking for and style of riding.

A good option is to look for perhaps for frame only and if you can, use parts from current bike if suitable.

Not sure it's still available.

Add that to Mashley's wheels & you've got a very good starting point ;D

Check out the bargains thread.  I posted a Giant Anthem in there.
I rode a Boardman Team FS for a couple of years and it was fine. The new model is a big improvement too. Dont rule it out because it comes from Halfords.
WMB just reviewed a full sus from Decathlon too and were impressed. I think it was the "Rockrider 9.1".
