    I've been thinking about a burly hardtail, something like a Banshee Sciroco, Santa Cruz Chameleon, or Cove Stiffee FR with a Pike on the front.

    no mas

    No more...I'm done. OK, there's an outside chance I'll pony up for a nicer road bike down the line, but no more MTB's. Seriously.

    davis, you got a 29er, you are done! I picked one up & I wish I had not waited so long to ride a 29er. I may get a Gary Fischer HiFi since our shop sponsors our team & I can pick up a nice full squish 29er to play on

    Just bought a CX bike. It's definitely my favorite bike in the stable right now. Don't plan on buying another bike for awhile.

    IF, and a big IF, my frame goes on my MTB, then more than likely my next frame will say "Salsa" on it (Ala Carte, steel is reel, or Moto Rapido). It will without a doubt though be able to fit 650b wheels. That 26" up front is for the birds.

    Vyper, a buddy of mine has a Superlight and he really likes it. It gets rave reviews online and is a simple single pivot. Definitely looks good, and I noticed Santa Cruz dominates your list above. IMO, it's more suited for the area we live in.

    Cove Handjob, SC Superlight or possibly a Bandersnatch for the 2009 season. I've got my eye on a Long Haul Trucker as well.

    If I move back to the rockies this spring I'll be looking for a 5-6" trail bike. Probably a Heckler.

    A rode a superlight for over 4 years. I won many races on it & beat the living crap out of it. It was a great bike....until I swung my leg over a 29er. Took 2 weeks to be sold & put the superlight on ebay. If you never rode a 29er, you owe it a test ride.
    As much as I loved my superlight, and all the Shufflers will remind me of saying. "I'll ride my superlight till it breaks", well the 29er changed my mind quickly.

    Exactly. I wouldn't mind trying someone else's FS 29'er (so if you get one, call me ) but I surprisingly don't miss the rear suspension now that I'm used to the HT again. Plus, this bike crap is just too damned spendy. You know how much snowboard stuff you can get for the price of a decent bike? A ton. Plus a season pass. Still have enough left over to pay for months of daily beer drinking while on said slopes. Of course, having a baby pretty much means those days are over too. Well, at least not every day.

    I've been riding a Cannondale Prophet since 2005. Just picked up a 2008 C'dale F29er 2 on Friday. Rode it at Middle Run on Sunday. Wow, I feel like a new rider. Done shopping for awhile.

    I guess you can only advertise your bike for sale on the classifieds, I noticed the thread I posted is now gone...darn, was starting to get response...oh well do a classified with the other 1,000's of bikes...but in the meantime pass it on everyone I'm selling my 2007 Cannondale Carbon Rush 2 for $1800 OBO all stock except have different tires on it (Ignitors on rear, and Conti Explorers on Front)...thanks for your help everyone.

    Going to be picking up a Niner Jet9 tomorrow....can't wait...

    As long as you pay your $2.00 for the classified, you can usually put a thread titled:
    SPAM, bikes description

    then in the thread body you can put a link to the classifieds.

    I don't know about the weight limit. I think that is a question for the dealer or manufacturer. If you keep riding though, that weight will most likely come down
