    Fighting off the upgrade bug!

    I just bought my X-Ride this past April, but I've really been wanting full carbon and disks.

    While looking for a FS 29'er MTB, I came across this:

    Ridley X-Fire/Shimano 105 Disc Complete Bike | Competitive Cyclist

    Am I crazy to want to upgrade already?

    The MTB I settled on is about the same price on huge discount (50%!), so realistically if I were to buy a comparable MTB locally the price would be about equal to the combined cost of both bikes. So, it's almost like getting a bike for free! Or at least that's how I would rationalize it.

    Haha, thanks for the advice.

    It's tempting as hell, especially since the blue matches the new MTB I have on the way. (I'm a dork about stuff like that)

    I suppose I should try to sell the X-Ride first.

    Any idea what a '11 X-Ride (original MSRP $1,995) with about 1k miles would be worth? It's in great shape, only raced CX once and never crashed.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking would be a fair price. Guess I should put it up on CL soon.
