My fiancee and I bit the bullet last night and bought a pair of bikes and a number of accessories. I would like to thank everyone here who helped me make the decision, not only by replying to my previous thread, but also from the other threads I read through.
What did we end up with?
I got a 19" 2009 Hardrock Sport since I wanted the lockout suspension.
She ended up with a 17" 2009 Hardrock.
We also purchased street tires for both bikes, water bottles and racks, helmets, a rack and bag for mine since I'll be commuting, computers, floor pump, CO2 quickchange filler, spare tubes, chain lube, tire tools and patch kits.
We also ended up putting different seats on them, my fiancee wanted a cruiser style since she liked its comfort more and i ended getting one with just a bit more padding than the stock one. We realize these may change fairly quickly once we get to riding regular.
No pictures yet since my bike had to be ordered and they were out of stock on the tires and they had to be ordered. Hopefully this time next week all will be in and rolling.
Any suggestions on anything else we might need? Of course hopefully not a lot right away since we dropped quite a bit on all this last night.
