    2010 Outcast 29er vs. SE Stout 29er + BB7s

    My budget is set right around $550, looking for a SS 29er with good components. I come from a road cycling background, so I'm not very familiar with mtb parts.

    I'm a fan of bikesdirect and plan on buying from them.

    I'm sure people have gone through this dilemma before, so chime in on what pushed you either way.

    2010 Outcast 29er stock? OR SE Stout with BB7s? Same price at $500 from BD.

    Is the Stout with BB7s going to weigh a brick-ton? I imagine it's about the same as the Outcast with the Dart3 fork.

    You might want to check the thread titled "Dawes Deadeye". There's another option for you coming out in a few days.
    You know, just to make your decision even harder

    Bahhhhh, haha. It's hard to be patient, but you're right.

    However, I have a Road SS Dawes bike... and the components are kinda terrible. I'm wondering what a low-end steel mtb is going to look like. At best, it will have a chippy paint job. I had to powder-coat my dawes it was getting so chippy after only a few months of ROAD riding.

    Time will tell, dangit! Throw us a bone, BDirect.

    Based on what was said in that thread (Dawes Deadeye thread), the specs are suppose to be similar to this:

    Also, there is another thread that was discussing budget brakes for a singlespeed. There are a few different hydro deals out there right now that would run you about the same as the BB7's. Hayes, Shimano's, etc. Check Jenson and Pricepoint.

    Well, I did it.

    Did I buy the Outcast or the Stout?

    NEITHER

    I found a new 2008 Bianchi Sok for a killer price. It's way over my budget, but I can manage. It's got superior components and good resell value if I decide I don't like it. Also, I've always ridden Bianchi road bikes and I love their quality stuff. Reviews on this bike are very good, too.

    Now I'll I have to do is wait impatiently for it to arrive and I'll be on the trail! Whoo!

    Nice choice. I love the look of the Bianchi's and they come well spec'd too.
