Our Full suspension fleet is a fantastic mix of bikes from most of our suppliers. We currently have Mondraker Factors (Ladies and Kids available in this too!), Saracen Kili Flyers, Merida one-twenty’s, Merida one-Forties, a Scott Genius, and a Specialized Camber. This fleet is constantly changing so there is something to suit everyone.
These bikes are designed to take your riding to the next level. They can go anywhere in the forest and with the multitude of trails to explore these are the perfect bikes to do so. The bikes range from 120mm of travel up to 150mm travel, some have even got 1:11 speed (what all the top riders are riding now – no front shifter for less complex gear changing!). Most of the full Suspensions are running 650B wheels though a few 29inch have slipped in!
You don’t have to have ridden a full suspension before to enjoy the ride. At the shop we will fit you out on the bike that best suits you (though if you have a preference we will always take this into account!), we set the rear shock and front forks to the best pressure for yourself and go through all the bits you need to know. For those of you who ride regularly these bikes are a great substitute for your own, and we are happy to tweak things to suit you.
WANT TO BUY A BIKE?
We understand that finding a perfect bike can be a problem so whilst you are out riding remember, if you ride a bike on hire and fall in love with it you can ask the staff for a price and walk away with it on the day! (You will get your hire price knocked off the price you pay for the bike!) It will get a full service before you leave (usually takes between 30min – 1hour), and you get another free full service in 6/12 months time. All our hire bikes are sold off art the end of every season, with many bikes having only been used for 6 months – ask in the shop for details when you come to hire.
