I'm in between bikes right now...and had my eye on one of these for a couple years. Couldn't help myself and pulled the trigger:
3" rear, 4" front, and SS.
Overkill for Mesa Verde, but that'll be it's first test. It's real purpose in life though is to complete the Grand Loop. Hard to imagine taking that much beating without suspension all ar0und...maybe that's why it hasn't been done yet?
My garage is bursting with bikes. Maybe it's time for a sale. Anyone for a beat to death carbon '04 Fuel? Only a few holes in the frame. 50% off for the pair.
