Thanks everyone... I get giddy just thinking about my first full ride with it...
14R: = ) it's an expensive bike to upgrade... though I've already shaved weight from what it came with... I switched seats already (Terry Fly Ti) and will be going after the pedals (damn the seat on it weighed a ton... and so do those pedals)...
I'll be looking for the YELLOW elastomer... the red one just isn't suited to my weight...
I don't know if I can part with the DT (they are like pets with emotional attachments)... I may just opt to make it my daily commuter... I've spent the entire winter collecting reasonable upgrades for it... and I'm about to bring out my scalpel...
I will be selling my FS MTB instead... I rarely get up to the trails anymore... as much as I love that thing... it hasn't seen use in two seasons...
EN: It has marathons on it... it looks like the base marathons, not the plus or race... I found the ride fast on the tires, but it seems harsh and hard compared to the Kenda on the DT (which is always over pressurized)...
