ok, i got into road cycling and it led me away from my old passion of mountain biking. i previously owned a super V raven, which was a great cross country bike but the travel was a bit small. i also owned a giant, but it was rock shocks and i found it to be a bit sloppy. money is literally no consideration, except that i will travel with the bike, so probably would not spend 10k on something that might get a little knocked around.
i weigh around 76kg, but will drop a bit once i get my kms up. i want a bike that i can use around town, but will be a stellar performer off-road. any opinions? i dont ride crazy stuff, but want something sharp and thrilling for quick cross country rides.
i would consider a cannondale dualy again, but want to get some advice before i go around trying everything.
part 2 - also, ill be based in china this year, so if anyone knows the slightest info about buying a bike in shanghai, please advise
