Although, I think they only go up to 26*1.75. Schwalbe Big Apples are supposed to be nice, but they are very expensive. I'd try the Nashbars out, though.

    My late 90's Rockhopper Comp, after a particularly muddy/wet ride that involved chucking it over a fence...

    Thanks for the lead, but I picked up a pair of Kenda street tires yesterday at my LBS for $16 a pop. Just got back from riding a few miles to try them out and they are pretty nice. :-)

    Are you referring to the first pic? My 1999 Merida looks the same "down there", but the tubing is different. Here´s the only pic I have of it:


    I´m from Sweden and I have no idea if you guys even have the Merida brand in the US.

    You have your work cut out for you on that one. Best of luck, does that have campy deraillieur by chance or is it just a sticker?

    Reallllly looking forward to moving out of my tiny apartment. It's been awhile since I had space and my bike maintenance has gone down the tubes. Been riding a ton and that's a good thing...

    Thoughts so far? It's on my short list, but all of the shops require a special order for it, so I'm hesitant to deal with all of that nonsense. What did you ride before?
    I wish I could be better at things with less effort...

    I am very happy so far. I have been out on it 5 times now and I am very happy.

    I used to ride a Jamis Dakar and the difference is like night and day. Now-the Jamis was a 2005 model and I'm sure the advances in geometry from then until now make a big difference in ride quality. For instance the Giant is much more slack and feels much more stable on descents.

    I work at a shop and have ridden a lot of high end bikes and I can honestly say that the Trance rides as well as any of the uber-expensive boutique frames out there. For the money I just don't know if you can beat it.

    Is that the Trance X3? Sorta guessing by the paint scheme. I checked out a Trek Fuel EX8, and will probably look towards a Specialized Camber, but like the component setup on the Trek and Giant a little better. So far the Trek is in the lead, though I haven't gotten around to riding any yet. You're not making my decision any easier.
    I wish I could be better at things with less effort...

    I had a budget of about $400 plus a pile of nice parts. I wanted a bike for short track XC racing. Here's what I came up with.















    1999 Kona Muni Mula
    Avid Speed Dial SL levers
    Deore M590 shifters
    Deore XT front derailleur
    Deore XT rear derailleur
    Deore XT crankset
    Avid Single Digit 5 brakes
    Ritchey Comp bar
    Lizard Skins grips
    Specialized Phenom saddle
    Continental Speed King 2.3 tires
    Mavic X221 rims
    Deore LX M570 rear hub
    Kona front hub
    Interloc seat post
    25.6 pounds

    The stock parts that I got with the bike weren't bad (older XT/LX mix), but I was able to shave a couple of pounds off the bike just installing the parts I already had from a bike that I had over-upgraded a couple of years ago.

    What's up with those tires though? A couple of Small Block 8's or Cross Marks won't brake the bank...
