    Just for clarity, it's limited to these parts only, so no cranks, pedals, handlebars, seat, seatpost, grips, stem etc vs a full build up kit?

    No funds. Man I hate that. Sounds like a killer ride, but, I gotta stay with my Specialized Enduro for now.

    Kickstand?




    :grinpimp:




    Just kidding. It's been a while since I've shopped mountain bikes. 18" - what size rider does that fit these days? I know with frame geometry changes (sloping top tube, longer stronger seatposts) guys ride smaller framesets than a decade ago. I'd ride a 62 cm c/c road bike, and a 59 cm c/c mountain bike if it was eighties geometry.

    I just bought my 13-yr-old an 18" Trek MTB, he's about 5'8" and growing.

    My wife gave the nod to spending a few grand to replace my ancient SuperV, but I think I'm done with serious mountain biking. I'm looking for a bike, but it'd be a shame to use something that nice for commuting. How long from seat-post center to fork-tube center?

    74FJ40- I recommend you find a local bike dealership and set up an appointment to be 'fitted'. There are too many variables on what size of bike you should ride, or be comfortable on. Inseam length, arm length, how upright you like to sit... all these things play a part in proper bike fit.

    Not all bike shops offer fitting serviced, but call around and try to find one. It'll be worth your time. Even a low dollar bike will sit in the corner and not be ridden if it doesn't fit you well.

    PS, you can get a pretty nice bike for $500. Two or Three years ago the "Giant Rainier" bike came with disk brakes, nice fork, and nice components for $500. If they haven't raised their prices much, it's probably still the best buy around.

    Max, Go down to Bicycle Pedal'r and be fitted like doc mentions and pick up a trek 4300 or 4500. Be sure to estimate into the cost a helmet, gloves, waterbottle/camelback, pump(upright and compact), spare tube and tool kit. :) good luck.
