Any Arkose X users here?

Post by ChrisF » Thu Jan 23, 2020 9:50 am

There’s a good offer on the Arkose X at Evans... am tempted. Looking for a bike to replace my Genesis Day one disc commuter and do combined off/on road bike packing.
Any thoughts or experience?

I've not ridden the X but I don't see why it wouldn't be as good as the others.

I've used my (older model) Arkose for London-Edinburgh-London and the Dirty Reiver so it's great for anything you might have planned for it!

Thanks for the info. I’m thinking the Arkose X SRAM Rival at £945 is a good deal. I’ll speak with my ‘financial manager’ when I get home...
