    Novara Method 2.0

    Any thoughts on this bike? Looking for an all mountain bike.

    Well Novara certainly doesn't employ the coolness factor...but they're actually pretty good bikes. It looks very well equipped and is a very good price, considering your probably using your rebate with the 20% coupon. I've never thought much of the REI bike shops (they woefully underpay their staff...meaning your not getting the best mechanics). But the design looks like the typical rocker faux bar link (it is not a true four bar link like a Specialized) similar to Trek Remedy and Kona Dawg/Coiler designs. Its an effective and proven design and as long as Novara hasn't done anything stupid to alter it.

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah the 20% would definitely be used. One of the local bike shops is was having a sale on the Gary Fisher 292 for $1800. It looked like a good deal but they seemed to have a lot of them and each one had something not right with it. One even had the rear shock installed backwards.
