    I like to ride xc style trails.
    Bike same with generic 1.95s, rode like a bicycle not overly grippy.
    Switched to 2.35 front 2.1 back, was abit nicer, more bite in the dirt for sure.
    Switched to...

    Some will argue the validity of sportchek, but I've heard good things and they even carry reputable brands in GT and Jamis. I've heard that they give free lifetime tuneups aswell, but I can't be 100%...

    Imo they're both ok for what it is. I'd shoot for something with disc brakes tho imo and the grip shifters eeeeh. Could always offer 150 if you're that concerned

    There is a local selling a brooks which is kinda nice and I wouldn't mind for my Empire. But something doesn't look right on the back plate. The name plate doesn't look like what I've usually seen....

    I kinda wish my top tube had some more slope to it, perhaps an17- 18" frame would fix that.
    I wonder if a solid chromo axle swap would fix the bent axle problem.
    I'd also like a higher end frame,...

    my personal great mtb debate.

    This season I spent a good bit on some upgrades and had some fun, but almost feel that my ride is a little bit too light duty for just how I ride in general. Bent a couple axles this year, I don't...

    The 820 isn't super duper as ppl have stated. But as a beginer is a decent choice. I see you lack disc tabs and disc hubs , so I'd skip that idea.

    I don't know if you have your heart set on hydraulic. But if not I suggest the avid bb7 or for a little less the bb5 is just as good minus a bit of adjustment the bb7 offers.
