    I'm not seeing this bike on their web site. Please post a link, or if they won't let you post links yet, PM me the link and I'll post it for you. I don't know much about bike selection, but with a link hopefully someone who does will reply.

    As a rule, the forks tend to be the weak link in lower-end bikes. I doubt the frame is going to be a problem. Of course it depends on what kind of riding you do.

    The Gravity Point bikes have good 'Trek' geo and the 4 has good components. It is decent value.

    Ok, for what little I know about it, the 29point4 looks like it would do the job. The fork is apparently hydraulically damped, & has 32mm (as opposed to 28mm) tubes.

    Check this one out:
    Airborne Bicycles. Seeker
    I see a lot of other posts recommending Aiurborne. It has an air fork, 2x10 drivetrain. The frame looks better -- the writeup implies that the Airborne has more hydroforming done on the frame then the BD, and it has the tapered headtube. They apparently want $75 shipping however.

    The Performance Bike looks really nice. Great wheels I would think. Someone recommended those wheels as an upgrade to my Superfly AL Elite. I don't know if the other two can easily go tubeless or not. And about the price of the Airborne.

    The BD has the better Elixer 3 brakes and the other two have the Elixer 1. I went to their web site and can't tell what the difference is for the life of me. They are dual-piston, so should be OK. Anyway, the important thing is frame, fork, and wheels. The rest can be replaced as it wears out.

    Re: Help please

    Apparently it comes with either

    The safe thing to do would be to ask BD.
