Hey all, I am looking at pulling the trigger on an All Mountain dual suspension rig that I will build up myself.
I am 6', 225 pounds and am currently running a 2004 Trek 8500 19" (Large).
I live in in the Nashville area and have a nice variety of trails to pick from.
I prefer single track, semi-technical, and grueling.
I love riding my buddy's Gary Fisher Cake 3 Deluxe, that's what has me drooling over a DS rig.
Advice and critique is welcome. I plan on having the wheels built by Fanatik Bike. My budget is under $4,500.
