      I agree with the poster asking what is magical about 200lb. I think body fat % is more important than scale weight anyways. If you are below 20% you are probably healthy enough.

      I also wouldn't...

      Rode a different trail from my usual yesterday. It was fast but also very rooty in spots. Big roots - more like small logs but they aren't so large that you can't hit them fast. I have to say...

      I'll have to try the slower rebound on the forks. I was hoping to play with the suspension about a week ago but then it rained and rained.... So trails have been wet. Hoping I'll get a shot on...

      That is just so similar to my experience with the Top Fuel. The creaky seatpost, and the quirky shifting. The shop checked my hanger and said it was straight. But even after three adjustments,...

      They aren't very prevalent for most mountain bikers. Sure, you can find them but they are not easy to access since you have to drive a ways to get to them. Even Brown County in Indiana, a top...

      he he. I didn't know the lace up thing was a trend. I naively bought a pair of lace up five tens because they look good on and off the bike so I can wear them anywhere.

      Ok you're right. There are a couple of trails out east that might require and Enduro/DH bike. But they are so few and far between that I'd rather rent than buy. Lugging around a Kona...

      Seems like enduro racing is very rare in the U.S. It'd be a heck of a lot more fun than XC. But XC is all we have east of the Rockies. I honestly don't even know why people buy bikes with...

      Do you have any specific light weight 2.3-2.4 tires that you'd recommend?

      I'm learning to really hate small trees, especially the type that is just on the inside of a tight corner so that if you...

      My bike doesn't struggle over roots. It's more about bad small bump compliance that is irritating but not a dealbreaker. I haven't come close to crashing once because 100mm couldn't handle the...

      Seriously though I'm not sure that I'm not far over the bars. I'm not like that on the entire loop and shift my weight around plenty. I haven't come...

      jnm. I'm not fit enough to bunny hop some of those uphill root sequences at the end of a long rides.

      Don't mean to imply that the bottoming is a problem. In fact, Id say this bike is pretty well composed and you don't noticed that it has bottomed until you look at the o-ring on the fork and realize...

      I definitely hear you guys. But what about the fact that I am running through my travel? I wish these forks had compression adjustments in the open mode but they don't. So I can pretty much play...

      I'm 170 without riding gear and probably 175 with it. Yeah, you are probably right. The whole bike set up is really stiff so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I learned from my dirt bike riding...

      To be honest, aside for small bump harshness, the forks don't bother me too much because they don't seem to throw the bike out of control at high speed over jarring bumps. The small bump harshness...
