yea, thats a pretty sweet deal then. I picked up a kona blast last year for 700. I wanted more from either the cinder cone or caldera because they rode soooooo much nicer, but i couldn't bring myself to spend at least 200 more on a bike

What??? Oh! Mountain Bikes......my mistake......

I'm pretty n00bish as well. Started last year riding a Trek 4300. Notice you guys are all riding hard tails as well...most of the guys that go to "Stillwell", where I ride, are all riding $2500 full suspension bikes.

i hear ya on the full suspension thing. we have a lot of awesome biking in our area so there are a ton of people down here that are really into it. full suspensions, 29ers, single speeds...we see it all. i love to ride but i dont think i'll ever be able to drop that insane kind of money on a full suspension...

I have a modified Trek 800 in silver with red trim. Modified as in nothing is the original boxed parts. Swapped a Rock Shox Indy SL fork, an Avenir 0 degree attack stem, shortened the handle bars, and switched to Shimano Deore LX components, added pedal cages, a Bollinger comfort seat and Panaracer Fire tires. I think the only original part besides the frame is the seat pole. Looking at the O2 carbon fiber to change that.

I actually prefer a CroMoly frame cause I ride in the winter too.

P.S. I use to work as a bike dispatcher at messenger company in NY and PA so there are tricks to get the good stuff on a mediorce frame that won't get snatched. A Kryptonite NYC lock is the best deterant around.

I love mountain biking in the forest. I ride an old Giant Rincon which i got used about 10 years ago and love this bike, no suspension at all. It worked great until my sister took it out for a spin and she bent my derailleur, so i changed it and my shifter is messed up also. On Saturday i got some used shimano trigger shifters, already installed just have to adjust the cables and see if it runs fine, and if it does i will get a new cassette, chain and crank, and pedals since they are pretty beat up by now. If it doesn't run well, i wont bother with the upgrades and might try find another used giant or something like that.
