Whatever bike you decide upon do not neglect to get the "Time Travel" option.

Hi and welcome to Bikeforums. I'll move this thread to the Mountain bike forums. You will hopefully get the needed replies there.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
