    May I ask why you're selling it? I'm just curious to know the reasons and don't mean to imply that you're nuts for doing that. What are you looking to get next?

    Nevermind, I now understand why you're selling it. I was hoping to help you with the next purchase depending on your needs. I, unfortunately, am going to be of no help in your specific biking pursuit. Some of these other guys may be of more help but it looks like you may be asking the right questions in the Urban forum.

    there are two places basically and they are manicured, flat, boring trails. all that i would need down there is a hard tail, maybe even a single speed at that. this bike is just too much for houston.

    Austin area is not flat at all. Nice hills lakes and trails. I lived there back in 95 but started MTB only when left and moved to New Mexico.
    I believe Austin area is nice for MTB.

    We have two temps this time of year with a range between the two. HOT and VERY HOT.

    1. you certainly can't see phoenix from dallas, as there are some big f'n mountains in New Mexico, thank you very much.

    2. There is a thread at the tetongravity forums that has been discussing mtbing in Austin. Lots of pics, lots of info.

    Austin is probably the best major city for outdoors activity in Texas; Houston the worst. Austin is very hilly and if you like mountain biking and drinking in the heat and have to live in Texas, it can't be beat.

    technical riding spot in Austin

    Austin's not that hilly (compared to the rocky mtn. states) but out on the west side of Austin is a nice riding area called 'city park'. The trail loop is kinda short so multiple laps are required for a thorough work out but its fun with loads of rocky ledges, drop-offs and pretty fast single track. The trails are shared between mtn. bikes and motorcycles but I found mostly trials motorcycle riders use it. Oh... and december is a good time to ride. Can be chilly though. Depends on what you call cold... Being from "Hellish" Phoenix AZ, anything down in the 40's is cold to us.

    Take your pick of places

    The December temps here in Austin should be ok. Probably cooler in the morning but warming up a little during the day.
