    New BIKE!!

    well kinda. Order from another ebayer.

    I am a big time roadie and have been wanting to get into MTB. However I know how I am with bikes and once I get into something I usually go all out. When I started Road biking, I change like 2-3 times before settling on my current rig (cervelo) - now w/ MTB my wife didn't want to go thru that again so she told me to get the best I could afford ( I can't afford much but thats what credit is for right?) so I sold some stuff on ebay and charged the rest. and jumped into a Trek.

    I went to local LBS and rode a fuel ex8 ($2200) and a specialized stumpy ($2200) both entry level full suspension bikes. but after doing research I found in the MTB world you can get alot of bang for your buck. So once I realized i like the feel of the trek more I started looking on ebay. I really like the fuel98 and the top fuels but they were bucks! then I saw this and had to pull the trigger. It's spec'ed much better than the stuff I was looking at at the LBS and overall seemed like a great package ( after looking up every single part ). I would love being able to buy this bike from the local LBS ($4400!) but I just couldn't afford it and had to do whats best for me. at the end of the day they will still have a job.

    I think this should be more than enuff bike for me! and cost less than the other bikes from the LBS.

    I tried to go buy a MTB for my wife (try to support the local LBS) from the LBS but they didn't have her size. Bummer.. back to the bay i guess.
