I got a rockhopper last jan. About a month ago I bought a used 2003 trek fuel 90 for $400. Well i sold both of the bikes to one guy for $1000. So now I am bikeless, but have enough money to look for newer entry level full suspensions. I went looking yesterday at some lbs for some 2010 leftovers and found a 2010 specialized fsr xc for $1200 out the door. specs : http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/...6&menuItemId=0 And then I have researched the mess out of the sette ace. specs : http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/187...onarch-2.1.htm
I HAVE NARROWED IT TO THE FSR AND SETTE DUE TO PRICE LIMITATIONS
I am currently leaning toward the ace because of the GREAT reviews I have read. But my stupid ego is preventing me from pulling the trigger. I will also note that the same shop that had the fsr had just recieved a pretty heavily ridden 2006 stumpy fsr pro that they said would be around $1000 after "refurbishing". I like the ace beacause the looks, it is new and I can sale the monarch and tora shock new and buy fox float and maybe a talas with the money I saved if I choose. Which route would you guys take if you were in my shoes? Btw here are the trails I ride just to give you some infohttp://www.singletracks.com/alabama-bike-trails_2.html (i ride the auburn, tuskeeke and oak mountain trails) and I am 5"11 190# 23 years old
