The bike I'm looking at is an older 2002 Enduro Comp FSR for a member of the family for Christmas. This bike looks so cool, I'd want to try it out for myself (even tho I'm a roadie). In looking at the Specialized web site I don't understand alot of the lingo.
A. Is this too much bike for an off-road newbie?
B. What the heck is FSR?
C. Shimano Deore LX .. is this a cheapie derailer?
