Buying a MTB - advice needed

05-07-2016 01:13pm By zed!
I've just started riding some of the Kalamunda trails (in WA) and love it, although it's highlighted the fact that I probably need to replace my 2003 Giant Rainer hardtail which is basically knackered. I'm not really sure what I'm looking for though, the amount I seem to come off, I'm guessing I don't really want a carbon frame. I like the look of the Giant Trance (I like the geometry) and can get a 2015 Trance 1 for $2800 new. Is that a good bike and good price? My budget is $2.5k so can't really go above $2800. I raced BMXs as a teenager and really enjoyed some of the jumping on the trails, so that's the kind of MTB stuff I want to do as opposed to just cruising on trails. Appreciate some advice on what bikes to look for.

Not2Bad premiere at Yellow Jersey Bike Shop, Woolloongabba.

Brisbane! Not2Bad is coming to you!

Venue: Yellow Jersey Bike Shop
Doors: 6:00pm
Tickets: Free Event

About the Film:

One is less than two. Therefore, logic dictates that two must be better than one. Faced with these indisputable facts, we realized that we needed to make a sequel. Weve never made a sequel before. No one takes you serious in the movie business unless you make at least two of something - more is always better right? And this is serious business. Serious off-road bicycle riding business. So get ready for a whole lot of more. More deep thoughts. More X-treme. And more slow-mo - especially more slow-mo. Yeah... that sounds #notTWObad.

Presented by Trek Bicycle in association with Shimano, Bontrager, Sony and Clif Bar with additional support from Pinkbike, Bike Magazine and Good Fortune Collective.

Grab your mates, your family, your riding buddies or come by yourself for a night of fun and mountain bikes in-store. Receive a promo code on the night for free entry to the YJ classic MTB race on August 28.
