jaymz said:i'm thinking of purchasing a pre-owned skareb... for my secret projek!
anybody selling his?
so not to be OT, what model/level of the R7 or skareb is comparable to the RS SID race? thanks!
i was planning on selling my wife's skareb which is rarely used but since she's out of the country along with her bike, its gonna take some time, hehehe. ;D
its a bit difficult to compare a skareb over a SID. its for the same use (XC) but it has totally different technological platforms.
to make easier/shorter, SID has a technological edge over a skareb. even the weight of a skareb is a far cry from a sid.
but an R7 is a different story though. although an R7 is heavier, its stanchions are 30mms compared to a SIDs 28 giving you the edge over technical, rougher sections. also, the R7's platform is different even when you compare it with a skareb. but i must say, an R7 is a big leap from a skareb.
so to compare a SID with an R7? its still a bit difficult. i guess preferrence and riding style are the key words. an R7's platform is way too different from a SID. i suggest you try both to compare. its hard to explain things that you feel especially if you're not that expressive, hehehe. ;D. let's just say that if you're the aggressive type, go for an R7. conservative, a SID will do.
i hope this makes the murky water murkier, hehehe. ;D
i'll let you try mine, jaymz, if there's an opportunity. manitou products lang ha. . pero pag all mountain, and agressive XC, i have a recon and a revelation you can try out. but a SID? cant afford eh, hehehe. ;D
