RScycle and an MKIII
Anyone had experience with RScycle? They seem to have pricings that fluctuate like Performance... they swing up or down with their silly coupons. I havent been following them long enough to get a good sense if the current price of the MKIII is as good as it gets.
Ive test ridden Giant TranceX, Stumpjumpers, and Trek Fuel Ex's... Im by no means an expert, but they all have similar set ups, similar compnents, and feel similar on what little riding I can do without a demo. The MKIII seems like a great bang for the buck, but is a little better of a frame and suspension than the bikesdirect equivalent.
