I'm guessing most people haven't actually used dual control shifters. One of my used bikes came with set and they were fine and mine were older than crap. I finally replaced them when they were...

The BEST is going to be a Kuat or 1up usa. I went with the 1up myself.

You aren't gaining anything running 32s at 100psi other than a rough ride. If anything you are increasing rolling resistance by doing that.

People like to say that including myself but then I bought a rigid and a hardtail :). They are all fun to ride. The rigid is like riding an adult sized BMX and my slack hardtail is just super fun. ...

The if it ain't broke don't fix it thing is why I say not to bother with the drivetrain upgrades. If you can handle it you can always go 1x9 if you really want to go 1x. I have my rigid setup 1x9...

What minor upgrades are you thinking of doing? I wouldn't put a $600 fork on it but new tires, seat, pedal, handle bars, that kind of stuff wouldn't bother me. Which version of the Four did you...

The advantage of a fork mount is it makes you feel better. Fork mounts seem more secure and the bike is rock solid. With the wheel on racks the bikes sway a little bit. You just have to get over...
