Any bicyclists here?

Postby josebach » Thu Feb 01, 2007 1:53 pm

I'm getting ready to invest 500 plus beans in a "Specialized" Mountain Bike. Any bicylce enthusiasts here mountain or otherwise? If so, what's your rig?

I'm getting a Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc. From what I hear it's a great bike for the price.

It's amazing how expensive good bikes are.

My brother is an avid cyclist and last year dropped over $1000 on a Trek bike. He's also one of them crazy ones who'll ride through downtown Chicago.

can't really say i'm a bicyclist, i do have a bike it's trek 400 or something like that it has rock shox and a sweet seat the really cushy kind with springs. it pretty much collects dust now, i keep telling myself to get the tire fixed and go riding but my procrastinative lazy side always pops in screws up my plan.

*edit: btw my first mountain bike was a sweet cannondale no shocks but ultra light, so light someone lifted it from my porch, bastards

I used to be into mountain biking fairly heavily, but when I moved to DC a few years ago I sold my mountain bike and bought a cheapo road bike to use for commuting. Anyway, my bike was a Connondale F400. Very light, head shock (not the lefty), a very nice bike.

I have a great $300 crosscountry sport or something like that. It's a crossbike between mountian and road. (uses not really super thin tires but not super thick) Buy a computer for it which can track mileage/speed and all kinds of other info so you can track what you've done. Usually people can install them in bike shops or if you know about tire size and can configure it yourself go ahead. MOst of the little computers they make for bikes today are pretty easy to install yourself.

Yeah, I saw those, but I didn't read about them to see what they actually did. Pretty neat. They looked inexpensive too, so I may have to look into that.

I bought a full suspension Specialized FXR 4 or 5 years ago and I love it, I wish I would have waited a year tough because the next year I saw pretty much the same bike with disc brakes for about the same price...but whatever. A couple years ago I bought my girl a Specialized Stump Jumper with the rock shocks and she loves hers too. I highly suggest getting a Specialized bike they make very durable quality bikes.

Looks like a sweet bike jose. ;-D
