I still think better to spend up to £500 on yours to get it right rather than £2000 to buy another, you'll still need to sort yours to sell it or else you'll get bugger all for it when you sell it. wall

maybe you should get one of these, its yellow and very little to go wrong with it and should be easy and cheap to fix......

surely if you sold the current bike for say £900 you then have an £1100 gap to fill to get that other bike, I thought you said you had no money?
spending a few hundred quid sorting the current bike makes more sense.

or if you cant do it yourself or bring yourself to pay a porfessional, then why not go get a cheap runner car, my car has had far less go wrong with it than my bike, but my bike is my passion and I am starting to learn how to do more and more too it even if it is only little things.

you need to work out what you really want.

you also need to work out how it would cost to do what you want

then if you can't afford that, work out what you can afford,

then do it......

I will have 3000£ From compensation next 4weeks
MrNutt nice coment thx. So why i want new bike? For 2000 i can get lower mileage and better year bike. This bike cost me 900 and rear shock will cost around 400 what give me around 1500.
Its 1998 and close to 30k mileage
I can find around 16-20k mileage and year 2001-2002
is it not good idea?

as i said it really depends what you want....

we are not here to tell you what to do, that choice is yours!

personally for me the cat is a great bike so i would pay for the new shock and keep the large lump sum for a rainy day or savings.

mileage doesn't mean squat as long as the bike has been looked after, and unless you know what a well looked after/well maintained bike is you'll end up going round and round in circles with bikes that aren't any good.

As I said you need to decide what you want

That yellow one suggested looks a bit overpriced to me. But then again what do I know.

I've really gotta close the door on this one, theres only so much help you can give.

Just because the bath water has gone cold you don't go out and buy a new bath..... See where it's going...

Toms had a 'cat and now has a few pennies burning a hole and now wants a newer bike. Sounds exactly the same to me.

Good for you Tom, what this forum does well is advice and experiential learning.

Im sure you appreciate this being delivered in a non-judgemental, non-patronising, easy to understand way as your grasp of the english lamnguage is exceptionally good but you dont always understand the photos & humerous one liners people try to deliver, because the last thing we want to be seen as is bullies. left thumb up

Feel free to ask whatever you like, whenever you like as we all ask stupid questions occasionally.

to find out if its better you'd have to test it and compare it against your current bike, less milage and younger bike doesnt mean that its a better bike, more things could be wrong with it than the current one for all you know, sadly just going on a picture and the sellers words isn't enough.

The Internet, as well as on here is literally littered with good advice of what to look out for when buying a bike. If there is nobody locally with the knowledge that you can take with you then listen to what people are telling you on here as they will only give you good advice. Take the information you read with you and choose the bike with your head not your heart. That's the hardest part because its almost impossible for your head to convince your heart that the shiny new thing in front of you has problems. Had you of read and adheres to this advice you may not have bought your last bike as you'd have known how to check the suspension and identify potential problems. Generally rear shocks don't just 'go' they'll give a few warnings, or cries for help first.this is water under the bridge now as we are where we are, looking again.

Remember your own limitations as well you've already said most maintenance is beyond you so bear this in mind, if a bike needs a little work to become the bike you want ask yourself; can you do it or will you need help, if so can you budget for that or negotiate it off the asking price.
Bounce on the suspension, pull on the brakes, read up on the bike you're looking at, ask questions and find out the pitfalls of the particular bike you are looking at, all makes and models are different and you need to appreciate this and have the knowledge about the bike you're looking at. Some bikes are prone to suspension, corrosion, electrical problems etc but get to know what to look for. If you're buying a Thundercat then you're in the right place to get the ins and outs of it.

If you're looking at a different bike you probably still get some pretty good info on here but that's not to say there isn't a myriad of informations out there for just about anything you care to name, make sure then, that armed with all the information you approach a potential deal with a view to walking away and more often than not you'll find the bike you want, in the condition you want without any problems lurking in its future.

You've obviously learnt a lot in the very short time you've been riding Steve.

You live & learn Tom, we've all learnt by our mistakes and it makes us more cautious next time. It's very difficult if you have little or no mechanical experience to know what your looking at. When I was single & wanted a new bike, I didn't know where to start but through experience you find a few things out.


There are a few very experienced & knowledgable peeps on here that have been riding years, listen to them, they've made the mistakes for you!

1 of things i think is :
i crash the bike 2 times and they pay my money back couse bike was 1999y or 2000y so they dont care what was on the bike and how much you pyd for it
price for 1998y is 1000-1400 , price for 2002y is 1900-2400
let we say
my bike (Red 1998 mileage 30k) i pay for it 900 + 400 for new shock give 1300
i find another one (Red 2001 mileage 12k) price is 1500
look like same bikes but if i crash the one i have i never will get money back.
if i crash 2001 one i will bet money back or even more
I LOVE YOUR ADVICES EVEN IF YOU ARE CHEEKY TO ME.
