Hi guys, I have never ridden this before and simply want to go and have a look, get from point A to point B and enjoy the morning. I alreasy have 3 others coming with me, 2 of them I know, but the more the mrrier. I guess the only hurdle here is weather based on what has happened over the last 48 hours or so. email me at dean@xyznetworks.net.au if there's anything you want to say, add or know.

Cheers.

Dean

Softtail HELP!! Specialized Vs Scott Vs Giant?!?

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Hey guys,

I'm looking at a cross country, dual suspension for under $2500. Almost half my riding will be ON-ROAD.

I will be using it for moderate/difficult fire trails and UP/DOWN bush tracks (no huge drops, no extreme downhill). My main concerns are LIGHTWEIGHT (14kg max) and at least front SUSPENSION LOCK.

Currently considering (all around $2000):
1/ Scott Aspect FX 15 (front & back lock suspension, 13.9kg)
2/ Specialised FSR-XC Comp (highly reccomended by a friend).
3/ Giant Anthem 2 <--- The talk of the town (fantastic front fork, excellent value, propedal)

On Saturday morning I'll be taking a novice mate round the Dam. He's been there before, but because this isn't likely to be very speedy and he's pretty new at this I'm throwing it out there for others to join.

If you've been lurking here wanting to say hello but have been a bit put off by all the high speed, long distance action then be put off no more - this is for you! Laughing out loud

An easy firetrail that would make an ideal introduction to MTB for beginners. A quiet ride and great views over Pittwater are your reward.
