Ok still no bike... My options are now. Giant XTC MTB with hydraulic disc brakes, or a Giant TCR both '06 models and $599/$549 My thoughts are: the MTB with 1.5 slick tires and a rear rack, panniers, and fenders or the TCR road bike, don't think fenders or rack will fit so I'll have to carry a bag. The reasons for the MTB: the roads aren't great here, there are some sidewalks, I tend to be sort of an Urban assault-ist sometimes on a bike, there are some great off road trails around here. The Road bike: much more efficient, I'd like to get into doing triathlons, I have the MTB back home that just needs some tuning.
The Surly is out of the question due to shipping prices/time. Or should I go with one of the cheaper Giant MTB bikes?
Thanks for any help/thoughts!
