    Oh crap!

    darn it, has been searching for a bike (for fun) that would categorize it self as a All-Mountain, I only end up with Epiphany, well went to competitive cyclist and I end up making the bike around RM15k.

    So I went searching again, and sadly I ended up at Trek's Fuel EX line and im stucked there. I got addicted to the FUEL EX line. Oh my gawsh, Im totally addicted to the Fuel EX 8, check this out http://www.treknology3.com/2007/trek...n/pages/f8.htm

    I believe they are clearing the past XTR models and decided to package it with the Fuel EX8, what you need to do is just change the shifters to the new XTR and you get ur self, one hella of a bike , and its weight is around 12kg. Not bad for a Marathon XC bike. (Actually after thinking and decided my self, I decided that I want to ride longer and further instead of faster, which means I am supposed to look for a comfortable XC all terrain bike instead of a XC race bike and its weight should be around 11-12kg) The irony.....

    Oh well, when I work, maybe I get that instead of Epiphany damn 07 Trek rocks

    So you're falling down too much on the current bike that you spent months dithering about.

    Now you want to by a burlier bike to do more "all mountain" stuff.

    This will be entertaining/comical to watch.

    Yeah, be sure to upgrade those shifters, 'cause, you know, all previous incarnations of XTR blow @ss.

    I will say it again...Jamis Dakar XLT! Very tough frame, nice'n'plush.

    Just build one, dude.

    Sure, you could buy a SC Nomad, but for less than the price of a Nomad frame, I built:

    Dakar XLT-Fox Van R coil shock (shock on the way)
    Fox Vanilla R 130 fork
    XT derailleurs
    XT cassette
    LX shifters
    Hone crankset
    Hope Pro 2 / DT EX5.1d / DT Comp wheelset (OTW)
    Avid Juicy 5 brakes
    Thomson Elite Layback seatpost
    WTB Rocket V Team Ti saddle
    Easton EA 50 stem
    Easton EA 70 HiRise handlebars
    Lizard Skins Logo Lock On grips
    FSA Orbit Z headset (OTW)
    Shimano m505 pedals
    Kenda Nevegal 2.35" DTC tires (OTW)

    (all said and done...I'll only have $1409 in it)

    Once I get the new stuff installed, it should weigh around 31lbs. (maybe less) Still tough as nails for all around riding. I won't do full-on freeride or full-on XC with it, but that's my style. A stairgap here, some singletrack there...a little bit of everything. Just as long as I can get some air

    Sorry but that makes no difference. Mountain bike related topics belong in the mountain bike forum. Off topic posts belong in foo. Rules are rules.

    Go grab that thread where Siu and Phred went mountain bike riding together and drag it over here then...we can probably stay amused with that for a little while.

    Not sure, but I think it has something to do with pandora's box.

    I was thinking something like that when I saw his post in Foo, and decided not to enter the fray.... besides, Mr. Smashy summed it up perfectly!
