Expirience with the BH SPIKE 2.5

BH SPIKE 2.5 Review The 100 mm trail on the fork qualify the BH Hardtail for in light terrain use. Anyone who has no concrete preferences when it comes to handling, can´t go wrong with the SPIKE 2.5. Because his handling is pleasantly balanced. The combination of high stack and short top tube makes the riding position pleasantly comfortable. If you want to hunt Strava-KOMs uphill, the BH SPIKE 2.5 is probably not the right bike for you. Despite this criticism, the coherent overall concept makes the BH Hardtail to in light terrain a buying recommendation in the price range 729 Euro range. Check the size chart exactly before buying: the BH SPIKE 2.5 sizing runs small.
