    I'm ecstatic with my decision

    I got my 09 Rockhopper SS Pro last week. I have ridden it every day since I got it, and I feel at one with my bike again. I compare it to the first time I hopped on a true BMX bike when I was 11. I didnt even realize these existed until I found this forum, and I just knew this was what I was looking for.

    Now all I need is a rigid fork, some pedals, and a bigger chain ring. Any suggestions? I could search, but then again this is a forum, and I am open to the discussion.

    I got it new for 699 on clearance, did I do good?

    The price is definitely right for that bike. Nice work! My only comment would be that a rigid fork on an aluminum frame could be mighty bone-jarring Are you going rigid for the feel or the weight?? Anyway, the important part is you finally drank the kool-aid....it tastes so good

    I like my fully rigid SS 29er too, but at 43 the pain in my elbows, wrists, and lower back after a technical ride makes me realize that it's only a matter of time until I have to go to suspension.

    Don't talk like that. Stay in denial. If you believe there's no pain, then there's really no pain.

    Rigid is just an extension of SS. Think about it.

    Yeah, that'll work for a while.
