    Palamino vs. Fuel 95

    I am trying to decide between a Fuel 95 and a Palamino. The bike shop told me that I could upgrade the Palamino with disc brakes and a new wheel set, and the total cost with upgrades would be about the same price at the Fuel 95. I am leaning toward the Fuel, but would really like some input. I bike mainly CC, no real drops, so the 3" travel on the Fuel would be plenty. I rode both around the shop parking lot, and the geometry on both seem comparable and comfortable. Thanks to any who respond.

    fuel vs. pal

    I forget if the Pal has the bb integrated into the rear triangle- if so I'm thinking that is a good option as fuels posess a small amount of bob. I have a fuel 100 (03) but I just got it so I can't speak to that too much but that's the 2 cents.
    Go JoePa.

    Thanks for the input. I settled on the Fuel. I read some reviews on the Pal, and they were not that impressive. I have heard very little negative about the Fuel. thanks again.
