    I have this bike and love it. Not the lightest bike around, but it is a blast to ride. The XCR fork is very plush. The shimano hydro brakes are great. No problems with the drivetrain yet.

    If I buy a bike on CL and I have the original sales receipt, would I be able to use the manufacturer frame warranty? The reason I ask is that I am looking at a DB recoil on CL. It is a '13 which is...

    Yes, I see that it is showing up. Not sure what I did earlier to think otherwise.

    A for American bikes, I wouldn't expect one to be 400. That 400 dollar one generally isn't. But, I would think...

    I would recommend a roadie with aero bars. The aero bars allow you to put your weight on your elbows and give your wrists a rest. I have them on my road bike and love them, especially on long rides.

    Can Aluminum frame cracks be welded? I have been looking for a good reason to buy a welder and teach myself. Can Aluminum (tig, I think?) be welded with a cheapo arc welder?

    90s rockhopper with head tube cracks

    Apparently this was a common problem. Obviously using these bikes on any sort of off-road stuff would be unwise, but, how about light duty bike path duty?

    Couldn't see myself on a full fat bike, but, would love to try a rigid chromo 29er with a 4 inch front tire. I think this combination just might add up to enough suspension for my old wrists.
