    Looking for some tail...

    well, a hardtail that is. turns out the homeowners insurance is going to help cover part of replacing my stolen bike. I can either rebuild my dream bike! start from scratch and build up something new, or buy a complete. so bikeforums, my question for you is this, what should i do?

    option one: rebuild a stumjumper

    option two: build up a schwinn homegrown frame

    option three: buy a complete Yeti ARC

    option four: get a full suspension bike

    What SHOULD I DO!?!?

    ooooo . . . option 3 or 4. ARC would be sweet indeed. But, then again, you're in God's country where the rocks and hills are big and gnarly. Go FS if you can

    You probably have the terrain to support the idea of purchasing a full-suspension mountainbike.

    Something like the Giant Trance would be nice.

    My vote is get the Yeti ASR-sl (in the pink... fastest color) or if you really don't want suspension then the arc is pretty sick.
