    My bike has a 3x10 and I really don't get the hate for triples. I love that 95% of the time I can just leave it in the middle ring and not have to deal with shifting the front. I'm a mtn biker and...

    Yeah 19" is too big. 16.5" is a little small but better a little small than a little big at least when it comes to bike frames. Nice score for $75

    Mine is a TDI wagon as well, nice. As for the fork vs wheel on wobble thing you just have to get over it :). Yes there is a bit more movement but it doesn't hurt anything and

    Taking the wheel off every time gets old really quick. I have a yakima frontloader wheel on rack and some thule fork mount rack so guess which one I always use. And in my case the yakima one is the...

    Spec wise they are more or less the same other than the forks. The Recon Gold on the Giant is a better fork than the XC 30 on the Scott. Now for the ridding you are doing I don't know if you will...

    forgot you went with a 27.5. That makes the used market harder especially with a straight steerer. 27.5 are still pretty new and most of the good forks that do pop up used are going to be tapered....

    A lot of it just comes down to cost. A $500 bike has $500 bike parts on it. If you spend $300+ on a decent fork you still have $500 bike parts everywhere else. Then you will want better brakes,...

    low end full suspension bikes are generally to be avoided. They are heavy and have two suspensions that don't work very well rather than just one like entry level hard tails but it is only $200. ...

    Throw disc brakes into the mix and it become even more of a pita. My easiest bike has rear facing horizontal dropouts which eliminates most of the fighting with the RD. You just pull the chain...

    What do you have now? If it is a shimano something or other then yeah that will work. Any of the 9 speed derailleurs will work too and I'd probably go ahead and step up to a Deore for a few more...

    Sounds like the kid was doing it right then. 80+ is the cadence you should be looking for. Put whatever gear you need in the back to do it.

    You usually have more room for a larger tire up front. Going tubeless if you haven't already also softens things up a bit on a rigid.
