Despite all the advice that you all told me to get a new bike from an actualy LBS, this bike was at an amazing sale and was amazing for the price. From Canadian tire(yes...canadian tire which actually doesn't have that bad bikes, their forte are the budget bikes, they can easily compare to those of your lbs. By budget, I meant like $200-$350.) Here is my CCM (YES SHUDDUP I DID SAY CCM) Revenge, 04 model. The newest one yet. From 300 bux to a low 180 bux. insane. It's really light and strong, took it out for a good test ride. Although it doesn't have many name brand labels, it is actually quite good. The shock doesn't freez up below zero, unlike many rst craps.
