Seems like a killer deal if you are able to set it up or have an LBS set it up for you. I bought an Outcast SS for a greenway bike and it seems to be a really sweet bike for the price. My Haro Mary MTB is steel and I have really come to appreciate the difference in the 2 rides. Although the Haro has big tires and front suspension compared to the rigid Moto with skinny hard tires, I would lean more toward steel for the smoother MTB ride if you can choose between the two at the same price point.Dragos said:I am debating between a regular and a 29er myself.
29ers aren't more expensive to maintain. Sometimes they are cheaper, as people try it then get rid of parts on craigslist (I bought 4 near new tires for $25 once). The only non-standard parts on 29ers are the fork, wheels, tires, and tubes. All are readily available and cost no more than 26" parts.Dragos said:I am debating between a regular and a 29er myself.
But then some questions came up. Since i am a beginner wouldn't a 29'er be more expensive to maintain or would it even be a good idea to start of the bat on a 29er. ex. Tires/special 29er parts etc. since theres not as many 29ers out there i'm thinking that when you need to replace something it will be more expensive then replacing something on a regular 26 bike. Am i wrong?
Hopefully you had these questions too, sry not trying to hijack your thread or anything i think its in the same topic
