What sort of riding do you do as the first 2 bikes are more freeride and probably a bit overkill for XC up Woburn. They have 150mm of travel.

The rift zone is more of an XC bike as this has 100mm travel.

The last 2 look a bit used!

If you are new to the scene I personally think you should carry on with the bike you have for a while, ride with the club, see what others are using and you will probably get a better idea of the type of bike you need/want.

But if you do want to buy now, its easier and cheaper to buy a whole bike, unless of course you already have the bits.
