Update: LBS will swap forks, cut the tube, bleed the brakes, and give it a full tuneup including wheel true and bottom bracket for $200. No-brainer to say yes to that. Thanks!

Whichever you choose, take your time. Stop at every rest stop, eat a snack, get off the bike and stretch or put your feet up.

My first SSCX bike

OK. I have to preface this by saying that my road bike has an Ultegra drivetrain with hydros, and I would have run Di2 if I could have afforded it. I love technology, and I understand that it does...
