That fork is more expensive than his whole bike! I doubt he can afford that if all he could afford was the Boulder.

Ya, I actually almost got heat stroke when I was done....and I only did 5 miles. Of course, when you're trying to ride hard and it's 90 degrees outside, that'll happen. And yes, It was in Michigan.

In My opinion, I rode an 18" Trek 4300 before I got my Rincon...and it was OK, but I much enjoy the bigger frame over the smaller one. But this is just personal preference.

Well, being an 810 it has to be an early 90's or late 80's bike, which means it probably doesn't have a suspension fork on it. It would be wise to get a suspension fork for your first upgrade.

I think I'm going to do that because there's other things that i'd rather spend my money on (i.e. Fork) So this was a waste of a thread. But who knows, maybe i'll change my mind between now and then.

In my opinion I wouldn't spend $600 on a bike to use it to go hunting. Like somebody already suggested, buy a Hardrock sport, that'll suit you fine for what you're going to use it for.
