Ended up being able to test out a camber in medium and anthem in medium. Could have done the camber but medium but a small would fit me best. Brand new for $1550 taxes in and I can’t complain (saved $1200)! If I got to sugarloaf for downhill I’ll bring ... more »

Thanks for all the input. I'm originally from Fredericton but never really biked while I lived there. I think I've seen one of the trail heads that you're talking about though for St. Mary's a couple of times. I really love the standover that the Kona ... more »

Yes, they are! I also know that I said I wanted to avoid Giant but I stumbled upon https://www.giant-bicycles.com/ca/trance-4-2017 and https://www.giant-bicycles.com/ca/anthem-3-2017 for under $1500 Canadian brand new. I figure at that price I could ... more »

Alright, I've been doing some on-line shopping and can find either a 2016 Kona process 134 (bright green) or a 2018 specialized camber 27.5 (men's or women's small or the women's XS). The most expense would be $2300 after taxes and delivery. It seems ... more »

Thanks Avidtrailer for the reply. I know that the Rockshox fork is better but I was looking for some advice on what to expect with the RST Aerial I don't like Giant bikes. My kids have them and love them but I don't like they way that they handle and ... more »

Hi everybody, I'm Matthew and I have an addiction to biking. I was never a huge biker when I was a kid but enjoyed it. Never did anything crazy - craziest thing I would have done is going on a dirt path! I decided I wanted to bike to commute and bought ... more »

I tried your theory with my measurements and I can't see how it would work for me! Glad you found something that works in theory for you, but I come out with a reach of 315 mm! I am by no means a pro - very recreational here! What I find makes the most ... more »
