What to do
Ive decided after a fer months of lurking to finally get serious about biking.
i seem to enjoy riding and tinkering with my bike, but it always sucks when i decide to actually do something.
i currently have a Wal-mart equivalent bike ( not in USA..), and it sucks.
Its a FS "Becidan" medium frame, SIS rear der' and SR front..
i already getting a front deore der' for it, but i am already considering buying something better.
I have looked at various bikes like the Hardrock comp, hrxc disc, Mongoose otero comp and the various treks..
However, i think that the frame is quite decent, and MAYBE i should slowly build it..
I think it has disk tabs on the back..
If i will use the existing frame i shall replace the front and rear shocks with something more "manly"( and air powered)..
I am 300# and about 190cm..
I have practiced doing bunny-hops on this thing, and seemingly, nothing broke on it.
however when i got home, my tire was flat..
