Well I'm sitting here in Afghanistan for 2012 dreaming of a new racebike when I get back. I really want something that I can have for years to come. I raced last season on a Trek Fuel EX8. The bike will be for XC, with lots of climbing since I'm in So Cal. Budget $10k max (hey gotta use this hard earned money on something). Still shopping around but I've looked at Moots and Kish thus far. Other builders I should consider?
Cheers from the sandbox
