    Decisions, Decisions...

    1.- Marz Roco

    2.- Push my Float

    3.- Magura Hugin

    4.- Shot shocks on the car, they NEED replacement.

    Decisions, decisions... Too many choices, too little money...

    Discuss, please...

    if the float can take it a bit more.. replace the car shocks...safety first, man!

    playing with the Roco comes in a close second...

    Oh, the Float is just fine... When was the last time you replaced a WORN or BROKEN component? Tyres, tubes, chains and brake pads do not count.

    Presuming "of course" you know your car will be plenty safe to drive, "if a little less comfy" I'd have to say have the Floate Pushed. Nothing like "proven" custom tuning to your bike riding style, and YOU!

    Dang, that reminds me I need to take the car to the shop this weekend for a brake check.

    The Missus drove it like 3 miles with the handbrake on...
    Day after she hit a curb with a rear wheel, etc....

    She wanted a new car by end of this year... but at this pace, I'm not sure if she still can get a hold on the driving thing or if she's trying to destroy the car to get the new one. Just like AM is trying to kill his ML to get an EG.

    The new 08 Roco range looks even prettier and may fit your frame better.

    More like it... But I see at my bike each night and I feel remorse for even put it up for sale. I think I'll keep it... If anything goes wrong, the SB can take parts from the SuMo. I could keep my SB with a SuMo rear or get a SuMo front to work with my SB rear.

    I'm studying options, though...

    AM are you trying to tell us something? What kind of Turner have you ordered?
    IT'S NOT THE FALL THAT HURTS. IT'S WHEN YOU HIT THE GROUND.

    Warp, I'm feeling the PUSH bug, too. Even though I've only had my ML2 for two months, I'm thinking of getting the rp23 pushed. I've twidled with it this way and that, but I still feel like it could be better. Or maybe I've just come down with a case of ugi.

    Sweet ride too...

    Too many bikes, too little money... I've liked so far the ML (obvious), Cove Hustler, Chumba XCL, SC Heckler, Marin QUAD TARA, IH MKIII, Transition Covert and the Spot.

    However, the ML2 and the Spot are definitively outta my price range.
