    I *think* the forks are the same. The fork on the Scott is an XC 30 TK Solo Air, but unless it's something that's only offered on completes (which is also very possible), the only 30 Solo Air is the...

    Have you had the chance to test ride them yet? If not, try them out. Mountain bike fitting is more art than science than road bike fitting is, and personal preference and riding style play a big...

    Loosening the tension will make it easier to get in AND out. And while they don't flip to the same position all the time like road pedals, you'll get used to feeling how the pedal needs to flip and...

    Yeah, I got that. Probably didn't come through in my post. ;)

    But agreed. Just leave what's on there. Save the money towards your next bike, or check Craigslist and find something that's still in...

    They're pretty much the same build...only one is a 27.5" and the other is a 29er. Decide what wheel size you want, then choose. The 29er's fork might be *slightly* better, but they're both entry...

    Would suggest putting helium in the tires. Hydrogen if you want to go even lighter, and you like to live dangerously. :p

    And you'd be the bike vs fork version of the people who put the $9000 bike on top of their 1980 Ford Taurus. :thumb:

    Given that there are several different types of spondys, several different causes, and differing degrees of severity, it's hard to make a blanket recommendation. However, I can say that core...

    You can exhaust yourself in four days of Moab. I've done 3-4 day trips to Moab where I've gone HAM, and by the end, I've gotten my ass kicked and am tired enough that I'm 100% satisfied with the...

    Hookworm for commuting? Mind if I ask why? That tire is a huuuge pig. Very heavy. Though it will be pretty bombproof if "commuting" actually means "airing off every feature you can find between your...

    The hybrid will be fine for crushed stone, cinder, and dirt paths. If you eventually do move on to more technical trails, all it takes is a different stem and perhaps higher rise bars if the stem...

    If she's 5'3 and you're putting her on a 24" with the seat slammed for casual riding and not dirt jumping, she's not fit on the bike correctly. Most likely, she'd be best suited on a bike with 26"...

    Put the money from the crank puller towards the bike. It'll be better spent that way.

    24" as in little wheels? Full-suspension 24" bikes are few and far between, and any of the ones worth getting...

    It'll slacken the bike, which will make it more stable on downhills but it won't climb as well, and the steering will be slower. There will also be more stress on the headtube...in all likelihood,...

    No. Don't buy that. I don't know what the prices are like in Greece, but you're better off saving up until you can afford an entry level bike at a bike shop. At that point, go try out as many as you...

    Yeah, anything between those two times doesn't work. Ideally you arrive months in advance and acclimate, but since that's not practical for most people, they say that right before is the next best...

    I've found lockout to be overrated. I never use it on my bike that does have lockout, since the fork is efficient enough that I don't really lose that much power, and don't miss it on my bike that...
