Im also in the market. Been surfing all over and think Ill get a used one becuase you can get alot more features for less money. Ive been looking at the fisher mullet and thats by far my favorite. What specs did you like about this one? Looks real nice although Im set on disc brakes. Also if you dont mind how much did it cost?

Bikes, did somebody say new bikes:



Unfortunately the 2 x P3 Carbons are not mine. Just builds that I am doing. The two on the wall (Soloist Team and P2SL) are mine.

A little more detail on the very droolworthy P3C.

Cervelo P3 Carbon ridden to victory in the 2005 Tour de France stage 1 by American Dave Zabriske in the fastest ever Tour de France time trial - 54.676 kph (33.9 mph). He was the 3rd American ever to wear the yellow jersey after that ride.

Could be worse. Here in Norfolk/VA Beach the highest point above sea level is Mt. Trashmore (yes that is the real name) at 68 feet above MSL. Mt. Trashmore is a former landfill that is now a park.

I rode in Colorado for 4 years. Did some big climbs. While out west I also got to hit Moab, UT. The trails here suck but at least there are trails.

I am still in Pensacola. I have been riding UWF's trail system off and on since 1992.

I wanted something with at least LX components. I like the fork and the frame. Those were the selling pounts for me. I paid $699.99 for the bike. Probably the cheapest bike I have ever bought. I used to race before I broke my neck and put on 40lbs. I just don't see the need for XTR components, carbon fiber hubs, and kevlar wheels anymore. They get too expensive to replace. I am now a weekend warrior
