    I pulled the trigger.

    I bike shopped all weekend, and test rode endless bikes! I felt most comfortable on the Giant bikes. I almost bought the Talon 0 but they wanted 1100 and I wasn't exactly keen on the tires and the XC28 shock that came stock. I test rode the XTC 2 and it was a trick ride! I almost walked out the door with it but it still felt like it wasn't quite worth the improvement over my (cheaper) bike. Woke up this morning and found a 2011 XTC 1 for sale at a place online about an hour away! Test rode it it and WOW WHAT A RIDE! That's my baby, smooth, fast, light and nimble! Paid $1649 for it! Also I noticed the 2012 XTC 1 was downgraded from the FOX shock to a Reba and they switched shimano for sram, does anyone know why?

    Oh man I can't post that picture just yet, one more post! But in the mean time I see there are a fair of amount of XCT owners on here! What kinds of upgrades have you guys made? I'm thinking even lighter!
