 Post subject: So N+1 time

So i had the news that i've been waiting for last night, Completion date of my old house. Great news. Now i'm not paying two mortgages, I make that N+1 O'clock?

So i have a few scenarios going through my head.

1) Keep both currant bikes and buy a c456 frame and forks?
2) sell one bike and buy another?

If i sell one bike, which one? the 29er is so plush and fast for XC and has been my baby? Or the YT is only about 6mths old and top end bling?
If i was to sell one of these i would replace the 29er with a long travel 29er Or sell the YT and buy the new version YT with 650b and 160mm travel.

Well what do you guys reckon?

They have a steel 29er 456 so carbon can't be long

Keep the YT, go for an all new, long travel 29er and when you want something fast for XC borrow one of mine :thumbup:

I dont think a DH rig would be used Andy, wrong part of the country for that and Danbury doesnt require it.

Dave I think a long travel 29er would still be OKish for fast XC?

Adam, Steel = Wrong ;) the Imbred 29er is ok for short travel beardie hippy folk, but i had the scandle already (same geo but proper metal) and although very fast, it was way too twitchy

Depends on the long travel 29er... I'm thinking the Scott Genius - the best of all worlds and it comes in your favorite material...

Go and buy the Scott mate - that way I can drool all over it..!
