    Try going to your local bike shop. If they don't have them in stock they should be able to order them and have them in a few days.

    He's right it's made by Salsa, which is a QBP brand so most any bike shop should be able to order it.
    I just got one for my Trucker and I really like it. Keeps the bags low and is very lightweight.

    The Crosstrail/Ariel do have lockouts on the fork for street riding, of course you get what you pay for on this level of bike so it is a very base model suspension fork.

    They are all quite nice bikes for the price point, it really just depends on what would work best for you. The base models have about the same level components but the ones with the suspension forks...

    Have you looked into the Specialized Crosstrail and Ariel?

    For my Dummy I use Kryptonite's New York U-lock through the rear wheel and frame, as well as their best chain around the front wheel and frame. For my normal bike I just use the U-lock, or bring it...

    It seams like the cage of the derailer is twisted heal out, it should be parallel with the chainrings.
    If it is straight then you may just need to adjust the High limit screw a bit.

    Spray some mild cleaner on a rag and wipe it down. Pay good detail to suspension and other moving parts.
    Make sure you lube the chain with bicycle chain lube every 30 miles or so.

    Try riding with the min. tire pressure, you may like it much more.
    For tubed tires I use 40 for dirt, 60 for road and 50 for a mix.
    For tubeless I ride 28-30 for dirt.
    You should ask local shops...
