Best frame for Woburn?

Post  Kal on 2008-11-23, 13:50

I currently have a Viper Fugitif Carbon and am thinking of changing her! Not sure which would be best suited to the sort of riding over Woburn!!
My shortlist is the Trek Fuel EX8, Santacruz Superlight, Blur LT or the Yeti AS-R SL??
I'm also open to suggestions if anyone thinks i'm missing I right cracker!!! Very Happy

Why is a Full Bouncer different for falling off?

Knew someone would pipe up with that!!! Rolling Eyes

It's not, more a confidence and psycological thing!!! Crying or Very sad

The fact that a bouncer takes the hits better than a hardtail from my dodgy line picking helps!!! Shocked Laughing
