I like endos
I have a 2006 MC 29er 19" (green one) pimped out and set up for more serious offroad riding, with high end parts, mary bar, sst saddle, etc. I love it, so nobody try to talk me out of thinking it is a sweet bike. Am needing a commuter/all-round bike and thinking of building up another (brown one) with midge bars, big apple slicks, and a big gearing, like 38x14 or 36x13 or something. With tire/cog changes it could do lighter offroad duty (don't like drops for really intense offroad stuff though) as well as cyclocross racing and touring. Oh, yeah, and it'd be really inexpensive, plus fun to build and, I think, fun to ride/race. Any thoughts at all before I pull the trigger? I'm waffling between the 17" and the 19" b/c of the drops. Thoughts? I'm 6'1"
