    Did I get the right one

    I recently bought a cannondale SL 2. It was between that and a rockhopper comp which was 200 less. They both feel great. I just wanted to hear your thoughts before I go pick it up or switch to the other.

    I chose the black 2013 SL 2 but that blue is really growing on me. Another dilemma. Thank you.

    Looking at component fit on the bikes the cannondale is worth the extra money. That's the route I would go if i were you.

    Thanks. I put down the wrong link. Here is the correct link to the cannondale so you can see the correct specs and colors.

    For 929 +shipping of 75 you can get an Airborne Seeker with the same X5 drive components and a much better Recon Gold fork--
    lighter and with 32mm stiffer stanchions.

    Airborne has excellent service and you can call and talk to them. They are also present on the forum for questions here and under their section in manufacturers.

    Crap wasn't fully awake otherwise I would have linked the seeker too!!!

    I'm considering late winter of ordering a seeker swapping x5 to slx driveline and my brakes from my trek 29er (marlin but only frame and seatpost are stock) and either sell my trek or keep it as a backup. Love my marlin but for price,components and paint job the seeker is well above many bikes that cost a few hundred more but service and such is just as great!!!

    I can vouch for the seeker as well, great quality!

    I was considering that one or the goblin but I've decided that I would feel more comfortable being assosciated with one our shops here especially when there are perks for 1 full year for buying from them.

    Here is the same thing in a Specialized product. Might as well test ride the equivalent.
    And...with hydraulic brakes tuneups are mainly cable adjustments you can and should learn in 20 minutes for the front derailleur and less for the rear.
    No tuneups on the trail.

    Fixed. Thank you.

    Ummm... the cable adjustments would be VERY quick. There are no cables in hydraulic brakes systems.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
