I wasn't going to start a new thread about this, but it's been so long since I've purchased a complete bike versus building it with my own bike-snobbery in mind...I thought I do a little project. Since I've been kinda hard on bikes in the past, I've decided to buy a stock ride and only replace things as they break or fail.
-Urban AllMountain: I won't be hucking huge building drops, but probably avg stair gaps and walls, loading docks, parking lot berms, etc. There aren't any nearby trails in my new city.
I'm generally so picky about every little component on my bike, it will be interesting to see what a stock ride can handle.
-2010 Jamis Parker 1: I had thought about bumping up to the Parker 2 due to the Lyrik over Domain, Ext BB over splined, Chain guide...but when it's all said and done, I loved my last Domain, the wheelset is the same, the BB is arguably more durable than the FSA ext, and I still prefer Shimano over SRAM. The value of the Parker 1 at $1250 is really great.
