Okay so I finally made my decision to go ahead with the purchase of a Specialized Rock Hopper 29er. That is if I am able to get my old bike sold for the price I am asking and make some more money in a week or two. If not I am going to go ahead with an Airborne Guardian. But yeah. I will plan on upgrading the fork to a RockShox Recon Silver TK 29er and then some other upgrades when required. I am really excited right now and can't wait to get on my bike and just ride...
