    Hmmm. The Rincon seems a little weak for off-road trails at the weekend, how about (if you can stretch your wallet) to a Talon 0?

    well...this actually was a stretch from my original price range. the wallet is already pretty stretched out. lol. originally i was looking at a specialized hardrock, then started to look at a cannondale f7 and a gary fisher wahoo. i later then found the rincon at a great shop. the rincon seemed to have the best fit for me and i was most comfortable with. the shop was great, and a lot nicer and knowledgeable than the others. although the rincon wasnt the lightest of the bunch, i was still comfortable on it. i just havent read any reviews on the 09 rincon.

    The Cannondale F7 looks like a great bit of kit for the money.
