I've been looking for a solid 29 or 26er with mid to high components, hydraulic brakes.
I figured I would be down a grand no matter how I sliced it.
I was luck (IMHO) to find that my University Recreation program was selling some 3 year old bikes. I got the Avalanche, with SLX XT rears and SLX fronts. Juicy 3 brakes. It also had Halo Freedom Disc rear rim. Upgraded Wellgo aluminum pedals.
I paid 400.00 for it. I figured at that price point I could upgrade the grips/bar ends, get the bike completely tuned (possible chain replacement), slight wear repairs for well under the cost of a new one.
I did however manage to flat my rear tire. Cant see where on the tube itself. I have not really looked into too much with flat deterant products. Does anyone have some selections that don't involve upgrading the rims and going tubeless?
