    I already have the 11-42 rear cassette on my Liv Lust 27.5er. I swapped out my 30T for a 28T front chainring. The gearing works great and is more comfortable for me now just by switching from the...

    Just wondering if you MTB ladies have any thoughts/experience on the following SRAM 1x11 questions:

    1) The Ovoid front chainring (helps with climbing or is it a hype?)
    2) 26T vs 28T vs 30T front...

    Does color come into play at all for you? If it does, I think you should also decide based on the color scheme.

    As for me, since you will be swapping in the 1x11 anyways, perhaps you should go...

    My main thought is that these are 2 totally different bikes. One is a 27.5 and the other is a 29'er. When you go downhill and make turns, which feels more comfortable. Even though the Trek is not...

    The wheels on the little fold up bike probably has much smaller tires than your new road bike. Bigger tires = more unwieldy, more awkward, more difficult to steer, much faster. Also, possibly the...

    When the disc brakes for road bikes trickle down to the Shimano 105 range, the price of road bikes with disc brakes will not be as expensive as it is now. I look forward to the road bike disc brakes...

    I would also get the 2014 bike with 105 instead of Sora. There is a HUGE improvement on shifting on hills with the 105 (and higher like Ultegra/Dura Ace) than the Sora.

    Personally, I do NOT think...

    I agree that a 2005 Gary Fisher is not that old. I think you should try riding some more on your current bike, then demo some 27.5 and 29ers.

    I am 5ft 1in, but I love the 29ers more than the...

    I totally agree with everyone above. The price difference is small and worth upgrading to carbon. I am pretty sure that if you don't buy the carbon, after 1 year, you will want to upgrade to a...

    Mountain bike shoes are very easy to walk in. I won't consider road shoes either.
