    New question here. Dallas Iron Horse MKIII owners?

    Does anyone in the Dallas area (including outskirts) have a large frame (19 inch) Iron Horse MKIII bike? I feel like my medium size mkIII 17'' bike has too short a top tube for me and I feel cramped riding it. It would be very helpful to me if I can just stand over a 19'' mkIII to see how the standover height is compared to my 17'' frame. Any help would be most appreciated .

    between dallas and addison. I've decided to sell my mkIII (asking price $900) because it's too small for me. I confirmed my findings by visiting a local bike shop, but it would still be helpful to see how a 19'' frame feels before buying another mkiii in that size.

    The weather should be pretty good this weekend. If you want we can meet out and ride some trails and switch rides for a little while.

    Give me the specs on the bike you're selling and I'll see if any of my friends are interested.

    I do. haha, I suppose I should have mentioned that before. I have an mkiii that I bought at performance about 6 months ago. I put a lot of my own components on there, so it's a little different from stock. I have a fox 32 125mm and mavic crossmax enduros on there, so it's set up pretty xc right now. I plan on replacing the fork and building a new wheelset soon to make it more trail/jump worthy.

    Holla back with a trail in mind if you're interested riding.

    Yea riding a trail sounds like a great idea, but I've received several inquiries about the bike and need to sell it asap, so if you can do something during the week, that would be better.

    I still haven't explored all of Rowlett Creek trail, so I'd consider that. I test rode that Pivot Mach 5 in Grapevine, tx at some nature park (bad ass aggressive/technical trails) and also Oak Cliff Nature Park (very good ~7.8 mile single track course with diverse terrain). I'm open to suggestions as well.

    Oak Cliff Nature Preserve is here too: http://www.dorba.org/trails/trail_guide/ocnp.html

    I work till 5 during the week, so until daylight savings rolls around again, I'm just a weekend warrior.

    I rode the Mach 5 when they did their last demo some months ago out at Northshore. It's a super fun trail. The Mach 5 was nice. It was stiffer than my mkiii, but not as plush.
    RCP would be a good trail. It shouldn't be wet anymore by this weekend. I also ride OCNP a lot, mainly for the jumps, but it's kinda far from my house to make it out there every weekend.
    Arbor hills isn't too far from you, and would be a nice short one you could probably pull off during the week.
    My normal trail is Erwin (I live in McKinney) since it is so close. It's not technical at all, but it can be very fun at high speeds.

    We can try and do RCP on Sat. or Sun. if you still have the bike.
