    Mmmm.... new bike!

    OK, I realize this is Foo and not much in the way of bike discussions goes on in here, but since I'm here more than the MTB forum, I thought I'd share it with you guys.

    Decided to join the 29er club and have been testing and reading about and comparing geometries and stashing money away for a while now. I kept coming back to this bike and today, when I was in the shop, we were talking about it and a part switch, they mentioned a sale and gave me a price. It didn't compute by my math so I pushed and asked them to confirm it. When they did, I said I'd take it. At the register... one last chance. It came up to the higher price (the one my math produced), but the manager said, I can fix that and changed it to the price he had told me earlier. 30 minutes later, I was out the door and in the 29er club!

    It's a Felt Niner Race. All XT, Reba SL fork. Can't wait to ride it tomorrow!

    It's not Ti, it's Alu. Got it at the shop around the corner from the house. Ti just wasn't in the budget for this one, despite your nephew's efforts.

    I knew it wasn't Ti, I was being a smartass because YOU talked me into Ti.

    Hey, a Ti roadie is the way to go!! I LOVE my Ti roadie... and, as you know, I did test and consider a Ti 29er. The Moots just didn't have the geometry I needed. Which, in the end, turned out best since it would have meant more saving and longer waiting before I got the bike.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Oh my! a bit of sexy she is! (be sure to add pedals before ya go tryin' to ride her tomorrow)
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    All I can see I don't like is the integrated HS.

    Nice bike. So what all did you change, the tires?

    Yep, swapped the Kenda Small Block Eights for Maxxis Ignitors.

    Good decision.

    I'm a big guy and the skinny tires they put on stock 29ers to make them seem light just don't work for me. I also swapped to the Ignitor (which measures wider) and found them to be excellent. Another good one is the Geax Saguaro.

    And we know how it is to wait. It took me 2 years to save up for a Ti. Well I'm glad that you are happy. It's a beautiful bike!

    Got a new Stumpjumper FSR last summer (1 year ago).

    Sold my 04 Epic and got this to replace it.

    First ride today. Those big wheels are, indeed, pretty amazing. What used to be one, maybe two lines through something is now three or four. Climbs are easy (though, that could be the hardtail working) now. Well, OK, not easy, but easier than my SJ. Nothing out here really tight enough to be an issue, so I still have to explore that aspect of a big wheel bike.

    All in all, I like it. I'm not ready to ditch the 26" FS yet, but this is going to be a very fun ride!
