Hi, i wondered if anyone could help! I'm looking in to purchasing a new bike, i really like the mountain bike style but not with those horrible nobbly tyres! The bike i really want is the 'Dawes Saratoga' but i have found that when i have tried similar bikes in shops all my weight seems to be pushed forward hunched over the bars which is a pain in the arse, i really want to be more upright, is that possible with a Mountain bike style or should i be looking more towards the 700c bikes? Another problem i have had is finding a Mountain bike with high enough gearing, they all seem to come with a standard 42x32x22 chainring rather than the 48x38x28 which is more suited to my type of riding on/off road, which is why i was looking at the 'Dawes Saratoga'. The problem is i can't seem to find anyone in my area (Hertfordshire) that actually stocks it so i can try it! Any help would be much appreciated! One more thing, frame size, i'm a 32" inside leg and approximately 5' 8 1/2".
