I'm looking for a new XC bike and I came across this
I'm sure I'll be ditching the riser bar (hate the beach cruiser posture) and I KNOW I'll be replacing the saddle. The Hayes Disks is one spot where I'm questioning myself. Do I want to trade them for the Avid Mechs (cheaper & better reviews) or, keep 'em? Another area of concern is the fact that I'm a pretty big guy 6'4" 240 lbs and the reviews of the Manitou Six Super aren't promising for a Clydesdale like myself Review
Do any of you have any input on this? I'm trying to keep the whole thing at about $800 and similar specs (splined bb is a must). I'm not stuck on the Jamis but I've liked what I've seen from them so far. That fork just scares me.
