    Mostly just kidding.

    I'm a little taken back, man. I had a '97 Rockhopper A1FS Comp with an Indy-C...actually a few notches under your ride. Nice sentimental journey.

    I enjoy the steel ride. It has personality and feel that only my titanium road bike can match. I've rented the aluminum HT and DS demo's with modern suspension and they feel dead in the feedback department. I will not do carbon fiber at all, Mtb or road. How in the world are you suppose to feel fibers suspended in glue????? I DO NOT RACE, I DO NOT HERO WORSHIP RACERS CARBON BIKES.

    We're not bailing out car companies because they made cars too expensive.. they were making cars that nobody wanted, and doing it inefficiently.

    All the big bike companies make inexpensive bikes as well as a few expensive ones.

    May be you all can afford the DS bikes and keep up the suspension maintenance. I can't. I use things up before I buy new. Plus now days you have to go to small pricy builders to get steel or ti bikes.

    you're making generalizations someone could drive a truck through.

    you think most of trek and specialized profits are made up from their high end bike sales? uh, no.

    *shrug* it's all about choices. i drive cheap car that gets fairly decent mpg, have a fairly cheap laptop. i spend the money on bike stuff instead. my wife is much the same with her car. we don't have cable. we don't bu y superfluous crap, because we'd rather spend the money on a nice dinner out instead. i ride my bike to work and do a lot of errands with it, so that most of my car time is spent getting to and from rides rather than to and from work and around town. i don't buy coffee drinks out somewhere unless i'm using my travel mug.

    just because someone is riding a newer/nicer bike doesn't mean they are some consumer *****.

    and: a new ride comparable to your old bike there would put it to shame in terms of fork and component performance. no, you don't have to go some custom route to get a nice steel frame these days, but if that's what you'd prefer to think, i'll leave you to that thought. updated fork and component choices on your current frame (yes, when your current parts finally clap out - and yes, they will someday) will be a drastic eye opener. speaking as someone who started riding a ways back, the "new" stuff is not all hype, not by a long stretch.

    i have wanted an ohlins shock for many years....long before FS was prevalent on bicycles. so much of it stemmed from myself just having to have this shock.

    in all honesty, the riding i am currently into would probably work well with air. like 66 said, i do like the feel of coil...for forks. this is my first shock, so i don't have a comparison.

    i think for long 24hr races maybe coil could be more reliable?? aren't you screwed if a shock seal goes for air shocks? ...but then you have extra weight.

    Yeah, no kidding. This one sucks almost as hard as those bikes with the S on the head tube. That makes me wonder; what does the C on my head tube stand for?
