    Welcome back. Check Pricepoint.com for deals on 29er frames. Ditto with Performance and Nashbar.

    Probably not.

    Mostly a mt bike rider so I always carried my tools, pump, in my camelbak.

    Picked a Salsa Vaya2 Cross bike for a long ride and now I need a good frame pump or do you carry it in that little bag behind the seat or a bag on the frame. What's a great pump? How about a bike computer? Is a Garmin Edge 200 too over the top? Would like something wireless.:ear:ear

    I'm running an older Forerunner 201. Does the same things as the 200 AND you can run with it!

    Oh, and since the 301, 910X and the Edge series have come out, you can get em for less.

    I run Lezyne pumps, on both bikes. They offer a high-pressure (road) and low-pressure (MTB). My only complaint is that I'd like them to have a psi gauge. Both pumps mount to the bottle cage mounts.

    Step up to the Garmin 500, as it'll monitor cadence and HR. If you're not so much interested in GPS, the Cateye Strada Wireless is a nice, reliable option.

    I'm using a Lezyne Road Drive and a Garmin Edge 500 and am very happy with both.

    I'm having some pretty serious bike lust for this one:


    [​IMG]


    Would put some fenders on it and use it as my wet day training bike / commuter / early season dirty road day bike.

    Is it wrong to have four bikes?:loll Probably the wrong place to ask that question.

    Nothing wrong with four bikes, but fenders on a carbon CX bike would be an abomination.

    If you're not man enough to get wet, you're not man enough for that bike. :deal

    Maybe true, but it rains nine feet a year in this town. NINE FEET!!
    Fnders are just a fact of life and they make some good quick disconnect ones too. In fact you aren't invited on some group rides without fenders.

    Nice set up, I wish my wife was so into them and we did have a tennis court size living room.

    What kind of tandem do you have...??

    I'm at 11, with two for sale and one on order, so hopefully just ten within the next month or two. I definitely have a problem. Hell, two of them are identical except one has a 1x10 drivetrain and the other a 2x10 setup. Here's the rundown:

    1995 Cannondale Killer V 500 (first MTB, on display only)
    Santa Cruz Highball 1x10 (race bike)
    Santa Cruz Highball 2x10 (race bike)
    Kish custom titanium 29er singlespeed
    Santa Cruz Jackal (for sale)
    Santa Cruz carbon XC (for sale)
    Santa Cruz carbon Nomad
    Guru custom titanium road bike
    Guru custom steel road bike (lives on the Computrainer)
    OnOne 456 titanium DJ bike
    Salsa Mukluk fat tire bike

    On the way is a Santa Cruz Tallboy. So the only 26ers I'll have will be the Nomad and the OnOne, both of which I love (well, and the Cannondale, but it hardly counts).

    Well the way I see it you need to have at least one of each.
    *hardtail 29er.
    *hardtail 26".
    *single speed MTB or maybe two a 26" and a 29er.
    *Short travel full suspension (the jury still out on that one in my case)
    *long travel full suspension.
    *Vintage mountain bike (you can have many of this)
    *road going Tandem.
    *Mountain tandem.
    *Town/commuter bike.
    *Loaded Touring bike.
    *Road.
    *cross.

    Missing..
    *Big fat wheel bike.
    *Cargo bike like a dummy or something even bigger to carry the baby around.
    *Track bike for the TRACK.
    *Vintage, REALLY Vintage bike like a Petersen in my case.

    So you see is not so bad.

    Yep. One of each. Now define which "each":rofl

    I like to keep the primary fleet to 3:

    Full suspension geared MTB
    Full rigid fixed gear MTB
    Recumbent road bike

    I can reasonably ride these and keep them up and ready to ride.

    However, I did find that 29ers just worked too much better for me - so I moved all the 26er mtb's on to others. Except, now I have sampled Fat 26's - and they won't kick all the 29ers out, but they are definitely going to fill some of the primary fleet slots and may expand things.

    I've added:
    Fat Tire hardtail geared MTB
    Fat Tire Full Rigid fixed gear MTB

    I'm not going to talk about various frames and components I have laying about.
