opinions please
« on: April 12, 2009, 12:00:20 AM »
If you could choose from any bike front suspension only, currently on the market for around $1,000-$1,500, which would you choose? I've decided to start saving my pennies, and upgrade. I'll be using it for trail riding only. None of that young kid big air type stuff. ;)
So please, give me your opinions. One more thing. Don't put down some one off, hand made had to get it from some guy it Italy type of thing. I want a bike that I can test ride before I buy. Again, thank you.
Gettin back to it.

I've also been lookin at those lefties. Just not a single speed though. My dad does have one, and he loves it.

Soul Cycles dillinger 29er built either 1x9 or SS. Beautiful bikes.  If you ever want to ride one let me know.  It's my primary ride.

Check out the Redline D660.  29er, 1x9, REBA fork.  I think they are still selling for around $1100-1200.
