Going for the "standard" 2006 Specialized Stumpjumper Disc (18") hardtail today. It's been a long road of saving pennies and making the old Cannondale last.
Any last minute advice before I go into the LBS? MSRP is $1600 and they are offering it to me for $1400. I've known them awhile and have bought 2 less-expensive bikes there for the family.
If there is anything specific I should be asking for please let me know. I've been riding a long time but am always open to ideas.
