Hey i am after purchasing a holiday home in the les gets area of france wich is right beside a network of lifts . So now that i have the house i have decedided to treat myself to a ncie bike to leave over there :p for the summer season . So i want something that i can go over and ride and not worry about maintince etc . Heres the bikes im considering

The marz gracia From what i can see it seems to be the best in terms of fit and forget with marz front and back


Maybe demo 8


I currently have a gemini 2000 and would like a bit more squish

I really like the looks of the Demo 8, but if you are comming over from the Gemini, maybe the Judge or whatever its being called now would be a better transition. Is all you are looking for more suspension? What other qualities do you want in this bike? By the way, congrats on that holiday home!

Id like a bike that is fun and that can take the abuse of pounding down long mountan decents all day long , I like the gemini but i dont find it that great goin downhill it doesnt feel like a true rig so basicly i want something built just for going down :)

The Demo 8 and 9 are proven winners.....the Cdale just came out with that bike so there still sould be a few bus...personally i would relly look at the 26 inch Big Hit...for the resorts that would be a very nice ride with low maintenance

If you want low maintainence maybe look for single pivot or horst link. How about, Canfield F1, Kona Stab, Banshee scream.
None of them are actually horst link bikes :)

Personally, I'd get Demo8 instead of C'dale.

BTW Lots of ski-lifts does not mean always good apline trails. Get the bike which has some limited ability to climb or to walk with it. Never been to Les Gets but been to Switzerland and most of the best trails I've ridden require some additional climbing/pushing (after using lift as 1st stage access transport).

I think that if you can afford a summer house in France than you can afford to use a bike for the season and send it to me when you're done. At the begining of the next season get a new one, use it > send it to me and so on... That way you always have a new bike with no maintainance, I always have a good used bike, and were both happy :D

Oh and I'd prefer it to be a Cdale Gracia please :cool:
