    Sounds like a very nice bike! I'll always regret not buying a 26er Giant XTC or Stumpy when they were still around ... oh well. If I ever see one used, I'm going to grab it if it is in vgc.

    +1

    Even though I'm an old man, I am without question a mountainbiker at heart. I ride "road" at home base, simply because I don't care for "driving to ride", which I'd pretty much have to do here...

    A great stage all around.

    1. I agree with Marcus_Ti -- admit to a bit of a chuckle over Team Sky (Is Falling) today. Don't particularly dislike it/them, but don't care much for it/them either.

    Then we'd all have to lean in and strategize to come up with a workable solution we could all get on board with.

    Common -- and irritating! -- problem. One thing to keep in mind: trying to pinpoint where the sound is coming from can be really difficult. A squeak that 'sounds' like it's coming from somewhere...

    Phil ... yes -- could be, could be! Probably too much to expect the OP to get it, and not only because he (?) is from away; most of us north of the 49th should have no difficulty.

    There ... you've got it! That's the Bike Forums spirit! 80 is awfully low, though; sure you might not want to double that?

    These posts/threads are always amusing, and there appear to be quite a few in any given year. There are variations, but usually the same general theme.

    I often wonder what people like the OP here...

    Sorry mate, but once again you've got the wrong end of the stick. So just to be clear:

    1. No, I don't "hate" steel bikes, and you will not find anywhere a post of mine saying that I do -- directly...

    What on earth does any of this have to do with the OP's original question/thread?? He wasn't asking whether or not you or any of us 'approve' of his bike. He was asking what, if any, changes he might...

    The only thing on your particular bike you could change that would lose noticeable weight and make a difference you might actually notice when riding would be the wheelset. Anything...

    Pretty simple. If you don't like spending the money you are spending, don't spend it. Find other ways, or just give it (cycling) up, and "lease a Hyundai" (BSNYC). No one is forcing you into this.

    Here on Bike Forums this is a bit like asking about "average speed". So, the question is: do you want answers in "Bike Forums Miles" or "real/actual miles". You are almost certain to get the former....

    Yes. MRT2 is absolutely right. The 3 will be fine over the short haul. If you don't end up riding much, you might never notice the difference.

    However, if you do end up really using the bike, you...

    Magnificent.
    Post into a thread that passed away in August, 2011 -- with a message that is totally opaque.
    Nicely done.

    You don't want to pay (roughly) the asking price from your LBS, move down into your price range (new), wait till the 'end of season' clearances, or buy used and take your chances.

    Seriously:

    Just get something -- anything that's decent quality -- and start riding. Sooner or later (usually sooner) you'll figure out if what you bought is what you want(ed). That's when you...
