    New question here. Can anyone tell me about the Trail SL4 (26 or 29er)

    Basically the topic...if you have this bike or any experience with it, can you give me your opinions on it? How is the fork? An LBS near me is selling it for $720 right now which seems like a good price, but I really can't find a whole lot of info about it both here and on google actually.

    Thanks

    No that's not a very good deal. It's MSRP was only $775 and it's a 2011 with 2012's coming right around the corner. I had an SL3 which I got for $799 brand new. I would look for good deal on SL3 or SL2 or hold out and see what 2012 has to offer.

    One thing to note the SL3 is 27 speed while the SL4 is only 24 speed. The SL3 and SL2 also offer hydraulic brakes vs mechanical on the SL4. I actually liked the RST Deuce Coil on my SL3 a lot. Was worlds better than the crappy Rockshox dart 2 I was running on my bike before! None of the components offered in the SL line are stellar in my opinion but if you plan on keeping it stock I'd def go SL3 or Sl2. If all you want is a good frame then it doesn't really matter I suppose.

    I got a 2012 trail 5 29er for 670 love it so far thing takes a beating just makes me sad to hurt my paint. The rst is ok dont care to much for it. Going to upgrade as I break stuff. I was torn between sepeclized rock hooper 29, talon 2. In the end cdale won just felt better and lighter to me. They were all better than my walgoose ; )
