    Not to highjack the thread, but I am impressed by Merlinextraligh(t)'s knowledge and argument. Merlin, what frame would you recommend for a similar amount of money and a similar purpose?

    So sorry! At least you live in a part of the world with lots of warm weather, so you won't miss crucial riding (as I would in Chicago). And cycling can only be good for your general health. And 2...

    I love Austin but summer there isn't just hot, it's miserable. When I lived there I did ride in the summer, and there are about 3 months no go here in Chicago. So I guess that goes to Austin. But I'd...

    Sometimes I'd get some chain rattle with Rival. Was hard to get derailleur adjusted just right so it was spot on in every gear. With Force can do minute adjustments on the fly.
