Hi, Searching google for some advice I came across this place so thought I'd register. I'm planning to buy a bike in the next couple of weeks, and I'm finding it tough to come to a decision on what to get. Although I haven't owned a bike for about 5 years, I used to own a Specialisezd Rockhopper which got a fair bit of abuse. mainly off-road, but I also used it for commuting occasionally. The new one will get less of the abuse and more of the commute. I'd say 90% of the time the bike will be used for my commute to and from work, and the other 10% for some fairly light off-roading. There are two bikes I've been looking at; The Charge Mixer and The Cotic Roadrat, which I believe Brixton Cycles can spec to a similar level as the Mixer for a similar price. I'm leaning toward the Cotic as it seems a little more suited to taking a few knocks. Does anyone have any advice on my shortlist. Or some suitable alternatives? My budget is £700. Cheers.
