Bah! I grew up in the land of plastic seat sweat. Heat doesn't bother me much. Plus I love descending. I love it enough to grind through the rest of it.

However, I'm still pondering the idea of putting a simple MTB together. Despite being in the middle of the city, there's a pretty good trail not too far from me. Nashbar has a very simple 26" hardtail with disc brakes for about fo' hunnert that might be in my price range. What'd be your recommendation?
