The Project. Commuter/light offroad :paranoid:
Got some 700x38c wheels for it already. Going with XT cranks.
Would like to replace forks with something like Carbon Paces, Some flat carbons, seat & carbon post & an SS hub maybe a flip-flop.

Plus all the other BS that one wants to do to a bike. But if I do that much I might look at something newer and better :blush: Then I know that the frame will be up to what I want it for.

I love mine, it rides nicely, and I've even won a race on it :D Probably not much better out there for $1100, and it's worth every cent :thumbsup:
(the juicies + pedals are upgrades)

Or you could be different and get a Peace 9'r. Although if you go that way, I would recommend going for the Raleigh 29er, you should be able to bargain price to under $1200 and you get Aviid BB5's instead of the Tektro V's.

I can honestly say they are a great bike

The GT 29er doesn't have disc tabs, otherwise I might have gone for the big wheels myslef...

I looked at the 29er too and the not haveing the disc tabs put me off it too. the only things I will most likely change will be the pedals and the couch like seat
