    Chicago area mountain bikers?

    Anyone on here hit the trails at Palos or John Muir? Wondering if anyone wants to meet up for some riding. I have a new bike and want to test her out. I'm familiar with John Muir and Emma Carlin...

    My knees weren't above the pedals at all really with the Rockhopper. I'm not sure if they would have been with the 4500 but they def are now w/my new bike. Again, thanks for the tips.

    Thanks for the heads up re: SR. Also I was able to really test out the triggers and I don't think it will be too difficult to switch to these SRAM X.5s. I guess the toughest thing will be going...

  8. Poll: They have been ridden

    Hi and thanks for replying!

    I couldn't ride them far or long per the LBS, but yes I did ride them and they all fit well. That is my dilemma.
  9. Poll: 8 vs 9 gears

    After looking over these specs I see that one has 9 gears and the others have 8. I'm guessing that most people would choose 9? Thoughts?

    Thanks for your patience, I'm rather new at mountain...
  10. Poll: 3 spec lists - Trek 6000 WSD, Specialized Rockhopper, or Trek 4500 Special Edition?

    Which of these 3 bikes have the best components? They are all within my price range and I have narrowed several mountain bikes at my LBS down to these as they fit pretty well.

    How good are the...

    Sunglasses

    I just bought a pair too after reading this and doing some research. I bought the "Iron Night Light Fototec" style from REI. I can't wait until they arrive! I hope they fit my big head.
