After about a year and a half of searching and test riding several different bikes I fianlly purchased a new bike today. I got a 2009 Trek Fuel EX 9.8. The owner of the shop gave me such a great deal on it that I could not pass it up. I am dieing to take it out and ride it. But I have a slight problem. We just got dumped on with a ton of snow. AHHHHHH It looks like I'm going to have to take it up to Rays Indoor Moutain Bike Park to try it out.
