Mountain Bikes (Who has one???)
Haven't posted a new thread for discussion for awhile. Thought i'd post this as i've just ordered a new mountain bike. For those of you's in the know in terms of mountain bikes i will post some specs, for others it might be a load of jargon.
My previous bike was a 1994 Avanti Ridge Rider, 18inch frame with the STX special edition group set, it has served me damn well and still looks trick after 10 years. Yes i still have it.
Anyhow my new wheels is a Giant XTC2 (21inch frame), with the DeoreLX/XT group set, 27 speed and Rock Shox Juke XC U-Turn forks with 63mm-103mm adjustable travel and adjustable rebound. I didn't want a full suspension bike as it's too bulky for what i need. Brakes are Avid V brake system. Can't wait to pick it up and take it for a spin around the bush.
Just wondering amongst us Ford nuts, who here owns a mountain bike and what bike (and specs if possible) is it.
