    If that bike lasts another four years, I will change my opinion of Dept. Store bikes. I am not trying to sound mean to you or dept. stores, but that bike is classified as a "toy", not a means of transport. The fork is weak, and any bike that comes standard with a kickstand is wimpy.

    the 7000zx. Actually, I like every bike on here and some are really my cup of tea. I enjoy new bikes , but nothing rides like my 96 Killer V. Maybe my old a** ought to get some new technology! My FS is 2001 Jekyll. I do have a carbon frame hardtail at the bike shop. I will get it next Tue. Does that count? Cant wait to ride it.

    I'm digging those bar ends. Bar ends make a bike have horns.
    My Cobia will be one of a kind when I am done with it.

    Yeah, I totally understand what youre saying. I do like my Jeep but I am definitely not going to get much more than 4 years out of it. Im only 15 and just getting into the sport so I just needed a solid bike that could last until Ive decided whether Im in on MTBing or not, after a year of riding religiously Im pretty sure Im here to stay in the Mountain Biking Universe The bike I want to get next is the Trek Marlin 29er, I hear those are really nice and solid! It has really promising Shimano and Sram components, there arent any no name cheapo components. I also like the Trek Mamba, it has the Rockshox fork and the Hydro discs

    My Mamba


    My wife's 4300 Disc


    Some minor "comfort" mods have been made to both.
    Gel grips, gel seats, basic light kit on both bikes and both bikes got hybrid tires installed instead of knobies (we ride mostly paved trails/streets right now).

    Man those first few rides were painful. I haven't ridden in over 20 years and the legs, back, wrists, etc... were all letting me know it. The local area is hills so its a lot of work but has helped me get the exercise I really needed. Today we did about 13 miles round trip on a combo paved/gravel trail. Hey, were having fun and thats all that counts right!?

    Nice setup. Why did you decide to go with Suntour as a new fork when you could have bought a RockShox Recon Silver for $225?

    The raidon was only $175. That, and I plan to get into another bike next year. If I had a tapered ht I would have gotten a better fork just figuring whatever bike I get next will be tapered.

    My current hardtail is a 1996 bontrager privateer. This will be my new hardatail an unused 1996 bontrager privateer hardtail. It has 1 1/8" headset so I can put a good fork on her.

    The fork that came with it was originally 100mm with Axle 2 Crown of about 516mm. The X-Fusion Slide RL2 @ 100mm I bought for it has an Axle 2 Crown of 506mm, 10mm shorter. And I hated this fork on this bike at 100mm because it made the front end too steep.

    So I had the Slide's travel adjusted to 120mm which makes the A2C 526mm, only 10mm longer than original fork.

    The end result is fantastic.

    Yea, $235 for the 26". I am looking for a 29er and the cheapest I have found for the Recon Silver is $300.

    Unfortunately that is still more than I want to spend so I am having to consider the XC32, possibly XC32 Solo Air if I can find one of those. I want to be closer to the $200 price point. $225 got me real intrigued...
