My buddy is in the same boat and all he did was buy a rock shox rear shock with lock out and he loves his bike, he is a climber like you....
Tire choice depends a lot on your local conditions. And what works well in the summer may not work well in the winter. See what the local riders are using and talk to your local bike shop. They might have some idea what works and what doesn't.kiwimtbr said:Cheers, i have been thinking about a set of Panaracer Fire xc pro, what do you think, havent thought about wheels yet
