What bike

7 posts in this topic

Hi just getting back in to trials after many years. Bikes have completely changed. I’m looking at a couple of bikes and not sure what to go for. One is a Because  color and other a Koxx cloud.whats peoples thoughts want 26” and don’t want to spend more than £450. Is it best to have front disc these days? Appreciate your feedback thanks in advance

What’s better between Koxx and because?both bikes are same money.  Is it any advantage having disc on the front rather that rim brake?

Front disc you can modulate more, with a front magura it’s just on-and-Off, with a disc you can drag it which means things like stoppies and different sorts of manoeuvring become available. Smoother too. Downsides are it’s marginally heavier, you have a disc  that can be hit and bent on rocks, and it’s not as direct feeling as a magura which locks the rim, whereas disc locks the hub so you get some flex. All these are tiny niggles though, go for disc, it’s f*king sick. Also the kloud is a better frame, I don’t know the bike specs but the kloud is stronger and better built.
