    Consolidation

    Since i moved to georgia I've realized that there is really no point in having a race bike (especially with college coming up = no money to race with). So Im going to sell my dh bike and my stp's frame in favor of a short travel fully for slalom and some super light dh.

    Ive pretty much narrowed it down to the transition double, banshee rampant, and mongoose ec-x. The double looks like it will take bigger hits a bit better than the other two but its also the heaviest of the 3.

    What are your opinions?

    I love all Transition bikes so I would have to say the Double but the Rampant is a damn nice bike too

    The seat feels like ass.
    weighs less than Nicole Richie.

    Im trying to figure out a way to get rid of mine. It squeaks and moans all day long.

    Its extremely light and strong. As for comfort level, well how often do you sit when your pointed down anyway? Its not too bad but its no padded seat full of feathers and cotton balls
