Writing about web page http://www.ridgebackbikes.co.uk/bikes/2004/bike.asp?seriesid=19&index=1The insurance company provided a new bike pretty quickly – and I now have this bike which is the comparable model to my previous one. Its a Mountain Series MX25 Open Frame. Decided to go for a 'girl' bike this time, largely because I found the distance between the seat and headset too great on the standard bike. This one seems to be a huge upgrade on my previous, with front suspension and a fully adjustable headset, although it does seem a little heavier. Its a fantastic bike, seems much better suited to me, and a lot of fun. I haven't had a bike with front suspension before. Initially it felt as though the front tyre was soft, but it is so much more comfortable and gives a much more enjoyable ride.
