    Or This:
    Specialized Fuse 3 $200

    Matte black
    cane creek head
    truvativ cranks
    gyro brake
    maxxis hookworm tires (110 psi)

    I am a bike mechanic who takes VERY good care of his bikes. this one was bought as a convenient way to get me to class and no longer serves my needs.

    it has never been beat on and has always been babied.
    Zero frame damage, never had so much as a pair of pegs mounted!

    you'll roll alot faster with higher psi in your tires, just be smooth and flow and it shouldnt bother you.

    That would work if I was always smooth and could flow all the time. The thing is, I mess up a lot. And I like my wrists how they are.

    They might, but I ride how I'm comfortable. I'm in my "learn how to jump stage" too, so that doesn't help any.

    Mini Ive been riding at about 70-80psi try that... not bad on your wrists espically with the new bars you just got... switching to new bars and running higher psi made my wrists feel much better and me being 205lbs on lower psi i messed up my fair share of rims... I think i talked him in to the 4 pack. Thanks for the help i think he is getting it for $200... Meanwhile i have a buyer lined up for the eastern for $275

    having a higher psi will also reduce your risk of pinchflats. im actually thinking of getting some 120 psi tires. not a whole big difference, but its just even more solid.

    I think my Tioga Comp III is only rated for like 55 PSI anyhow. And my Intense Haalo is rated up to 125 PSI. I would neverrrr run that much.

    High PSI makes my bike feel like crap, every little bump makes it rattle and it's a lot harder to manual.
