You don't have a rapidfire shifter so getting one will speed things a bit but IMO what you have is not worth dropping any more coin into. Just ride what you got to the ground and then upgrade the...

Have taken this baby out twice and I love it! Crazy how nimble the 26er rides compared to a 29er. Went to spots where they do XC and enduro racing in the summer and it was so much fun. I think I...

Yeah it's the Muirwoods 29er and I absolutely love it. It's such a tank but I can get some nice speed on it. You can get a 2013 on ebay right now for cheap too. I paid $449 for mine shipped but you...

Ahh ok I guess I've just never seen it so drastic that it's easily distinguishable with the naked eye. For example between my 56cm EVO and the 50cm the slope is not so apparent.

I like the Trek out of all the ones listed. I think the color is pretty slick and internal cable routing is nice.

Another option is a steel 29er with a rigid steel fork and some giant Schwalbe Big Apple tires in 28x2.35 size and low PSI. That would be a super cush ride and not break the bank at all.

If you want a light be on the lookout for a Serfas True 1000 or 1500 deal. They are about ~$100 but are really powerful.
