New Bike Advice

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I’m starting to think about my next bike am a bit out of touch with what’s out there so am trying to shortcut my research by asking NoBMoBers for some tips.

I do cross country marathons and my only 2 criteria are it must be dual suspension and it must be able to fit 2 drink bottles. The latter being the hurdle. I also have a preference for 1x11 or 1x12 and sub 11kg.

So far I’m aware of only 3 bikes that fit the bill - Specialized Epic, Cannondale Scalpel & Canyon Lux.

Are there any others I should be looking at?

Cheers

Bike selection advice.

Hi there Im a 172cm 75Kg 53 yr old keen to get back on the bike but a bit bewildered by the changes that have come to the gear in the 7 or so years Ive been out. I ride mostly local northern beaches esp. Narrabeen Manly dam but a few trips when time allows to the Oakes/Andersons or Orimbah. Im up for a good second hand medium, dual Suspension (carbon if I can afford it). So.... opinions 1x10 1x11 1x12??? 29vs 27.5 etc etc.
Cheers Pete.

Any NobMob Final Flingers?

Going down for my final half fling (I'd been building up to the full, but too last I guess).

I always like how the organizers try to instill a sense of fun in these events, with themes Rolloff, kids races etc.

Viva last Kowalski

The last Kowalski race leaves a lasting memory of being one of the toughest 50km I've done but something that I will miss dearly.
This is my 4th Kowalski race and 3rd half kowalski, probably my favorite marathon event out of all the races that I've done.

As at yesterday, dry and dusty. Keep an eye out for play groups, dogs, runners and walkers, it's getting worse up there every day.
