Thanks. Would you say that a Stumpjumer FSR falls into the same category as dawg and coiler series? I guess I could spend a max of 2k, but I'd much rather spend around 1-1.5k.

It is pouring rain outside.. Should I go for a ride?

Im debating whether to go for a ride in the mud after work. I live in an apartment so I'm thinking i'll just go to a carwash after I ride and hose the bike off.

Do you guys do this frequently?
