I suppose there won't be any catastrophic failures for me then... I am the paranoid type who stops instantly whenever I hear anything out of the ordinary, usually it's just a leaf stuck somewhere...

What's with all the aluminium catastrophic failure stories!?

Seriously? What's up with that? Are you telling me that 10 years from now I will riding along merily when I hit a pothole large enough to trap an elephant (thank you, wealthy New Jersey taxpayers!)...

Thanks! Yeah, I will definately buy the bike that fits me the best, damn my current list etc.

I am quite tall, 6' 4" (and 185 pounds) so I will need a large bike.

Thanks dynaryder! Great summary! I called around and apparently there is no dealer nearby (Northern NJ area) that carries Kona bikes. That is disappointing. I would really want to try the bike before...

It seems that one of the primary objections to the disc brakes is that they are too heavy. How much heavier would that be? See, I've never had the fancy new V brakes. The Schwinn has the old...

Yeah, I would love a Trek S500 or S400, they use the 8 speed Nexus. Lovely bikes. Too bad you just can't get 'em here.

S400:...

Because I have crashed with the bike twice already. Only the frame is salvagable, and that would require proper cleaning and repainting, which isn't that cheap. Plus, I would like a lighter frame...

Thanks Jimples!

Good to hear that the Gary Fisher's aren't actually that expensive. I think I will head out to the stores to weekend to look around a bit.

As far as the Avid BB5 and the Hayes MX4 brakes go, what's easier adjust? It seems the BB7 is preferred over the BB5 from what I've read on here. And the MX4 is an OEM brake so I couldn't find specs...

Aren't those very pricey? In comparison, I mean. Also, I found out that 700c tires are 28"-ers. So the Kona and the Cannondale have larger wheels and tires than the Trek and the Fisher. I think that...

To buy expensive bike or not?

Hello everyone, first time posting here. Here goes:

I have been riding an old Schwinn hardtail mountain bike for almost ten years now. For about 6 of those, I rode it almost every day, in the...
