So having a choice problem. Am bidding on imaculate XO1 2001 online or can get a 2003 SH Jake for £500 (halfprice)
I come from Mountain bike back ground - race a Klein hardtail - so a harsher ride isnt the problem. I am looking to use the bike for commuting (short <10 miles) but also want to put panniers on for 6 week trip around C*BA - carrying around 15kilos. Can anyone tell me the differences between these bikes? Ride characteristics, strength etc.
