I've had a look around and done some searches but had little luck in finding exactly the info I'm looking for. So it's time to ask for help I own a bit of land with a substantial part of it being quite rough driving terrain. I get around quite nicely with 4x4 tractors and VW syncros, but find it a bit of a hazzle to use them when I've only got very light work or inspection to do. So I though about getting a suitable bike. Over the years, I've had several cross bikes. 2-stroke 125, 250 and 500. But nothing in the recent years. And they don't work particularly well in this terrain. So i thought that getting a trail bike would be perfect. It should be able to access just about anywhere, and go about much quicker than the 4x4s. The thing is, I know basically nothing about them. They have low gears, no proper seat and knobby wheels. That's pretty much the extent of my knowledge. Terrain description: - Gravel roads - Grass roads - Steep grass hills (with lots bumps, rocks etc.) - Some mountiny/rocky parts (but no rock jumping etc.) - A bog here and there - Open dirt patches (muddy when wet) I think my criteria for this bike would be somewhat like this: 1. RELIABLE. No high performance frequent break down stuff. I want this to run several times a week for many years. 2. EASY MAINTENANCE I usually do my own mechanical maintenance, and have a fairly well stocked workshop. But I don't want to spend much time maintaining. I've got lots of other stuff to maintain. 3. ADEQUATE POWER I'm not competing against anyone else than probably some sheep. But I don't want to push the bike either. 4. REASONABLE PRICE Self explanatory. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated!
