    I'm with Wanderer on this one. The Diamondback Clarity looks like a great option with the trigger shifters. But it always comes down to you taking the time to make the right choice by test riding all...

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone. If I keep the present rack, I would have to make my own seat stay brackets (LBSs here charge way too much even for the smallest thing!). I can rotate the rack...

    Excellent advice, BarracksSi! I have been on a few runs up to 2 km but as you say, it really isn't doing my legs any favours. I get shin pain (not splints) that is most likely from bearing so much...

    Ok, here's an update for everyone. The fenders fit perfectly using the lower holes by the hub on the back wheel. Then I attached the fender at the bottom and after that, taped a piece of paper to the...

    The frame is only a 51 which, while I normally would take a 46, is still at my upper limit. I also prefer a slightly larger frame than normal and I can still stand over the frame (although a quick...

    I bought a MTB two years ago (a Scott Aspect 30) but quickly found that I was so far out of shape that trail riding wasn't my thing at that stage in the game. Ultimately, what I really wanted to do...

    As others have already mentioned, the best thing for you to do at this stage would be to hit an LBS and try a few different bikes. How it feels to you personally is going to play a much more...

    I personally would replace the suspension fork with a straight carbon fork. What does the bike weigh at this point?

    Either go with the DS or see if you can find a Scott Aspect 30 (for example). It'll do everything if you can find one at a reasonable price. I just sold mine as I moved from dirt trails to commuting.
