scales :shock: don't do it- the death of many a man's dreams :lol:

That is a really nice machine you have assembled, a great job mr branson and a great man shed too 8)

How do you decide on which bike to take on a ride I would take forever trying to choose?

I have got a diff. bike for a different use-
Full Rigid offroad
SS offroad hard tail
Full bounce
SScommute and soon
SS offroad rigid.

In my head there is a very good reason to have each variant- or so I tell the wife :wink:

well done.

Cheers Gaz 8)

My current way of thinking it:
Dry and sunny = RTS
Dry = Zaskar LE
Smooth trails = Tempest
All weathers = Zaskar
All weather / all trails = Pro-Flex
Turbo = Pennine :wink:

But, TBH, the Zaskar is currently at the front of all the bikes......so that will get hammered most oftern at the moment! :lol:
