Its funny because I keep asking them questions about the bike and they "assure" me that its all real and that I will receive a bike if I give them my money. I THINK NOT! lol

Good call! Thanks for the link. I was looking at the Cannondale claymore 2011 and it was 2300 with shipping from indonesia, too good to be true is always almost fake.

All the stores are sold out of the bike I want; so I am trying to buy a bike online for the first time ever. I googled to see if there were any for sale online and I checked out this link and saw some killer prices and it is in the UK. BUTTT some of ... more »

Flats give you more room for error and possibly allow you to go harder because of that but clips give you more control and can make you go harder because of that. The main decider for me was crashing, I have ridden clips for XC/AM and I would prolly ... more »

So I have been drooling over the Cannondale claymore for the last few months. I have been searching for the perfect "do it all" bike that can be a good all mtn bike and then switch to more freeride/DH with the changing of a few parts. I originally thought ... more »

I am originally from upstate New York but was living in Colorado at the time when a buddy of mine told me that they were closing the historic yankee stadium to make way for the new monstrosity right across the street. Upon hearing this I knew I had to go see ONE game there considering I had never been before. I could never call myself a true New Yorker without seeing one there.

So I scrounged up every penny I could to get a ticket there and I figured that since I was in NY I should ride at Diablo bike park a few times considering its fairly close to the stadium. After arriving in NYC I was informed that the airline lost my bike during the flight which seemed weird since it was a direct flight. After realizing their mistake the airlines called me when I was half way to Diablo and told me they had my bike all along (idiots). So I turned around, grabbed it and headed back to the park JUST in time for rush hour traffic, yay!!!

The day of the game I was riding out of my mind, hitting jumps that I didn't even know I could hit and flying through the park faster than I have ever gone. I knew I had time for "one last run" before the we head to the game. I met some new friends at the top of the lift and they started taking me down a trail I had never been on before. We eventually get to this funny looking step down which was a really short gap especially for how long of a drop it was but since I had some mojo going that day I decided to be the first one of the group to hit it. I came rolling in wayyy to hot and overcleared the drop which flung me over my bars and right into a pricker bush after separating my shoulder and breaking my ribs.

I knew I couldn't just lay there waiting for help so I rode my bike down the rest of the hill with one arm and actually crashed two more times on the gravel service road I was on before finally made it to the bottom. The medic that was down there saw my shoulder and immediately called an ambulance (even though I told him I was fine and could drive there myself). Once the ambulance arrived they kept asking me if I hit my head/neck and I said "well I'm sure I did, I hit almost everything in that crash" (bad move). Upon hearing this, they immediately strapped me to a big orange board and put a neck brace on me even though I could move my neck just fine. Its amazing what hospitals have to go through so you won't sue them these days.

After sitting in the New Jersey hospital for 3 hours strapped to this very uncomfortable board; they tell me that I have 2 broken rips and a 3rd degree separated shoulder. But the cherry on the top was that not 2 min later my dad (who was meeting me at the stadium) tells me that the yankees lost the game as well......what a great trip! lol

If everything is well maintained and the fork has been serviced a few times since you bought it then you might be able to get 800-900 I'd say. Its tough asking for over 1000 if its an older hardtail :/

I bet that bike is 37.9 lbs exactly then lol. 2 years ago 38 lbs would have been one of the lightest on the market and now its common, I love how far the industry has come.

Liked a comment on the item mountain biker fight in new zealand 4/24/2012 4:44 PM

...the point is... what the camera guy did was rude and inappropiate, but the old guy started a "criminal" offense... at least when you consider german law... which could mean 500-2000$ fine... by the way...the "young gun" deserved it...i thnik

I would have ninja kicked that old dude down the side of the mtn then slashed his tires and thrown his POS bike on top of him, What a dick!!! If your old enough to have had your prostate checked you need to get the hell out of the way for faster people especially when there is basically no room to pass, I'm gonna do it when I'm old why not him? I think Karma will come around for Mr. Rock Shox....

Cool, thanks for the input. I think I may eventually get one here in a season or so. The bike does seem pretty versatile, but I may just have to get some parts to swap, only because I am coming from a full on DH bike (Demo 8) and I think I'm gonna miss ... more »

So I think eventually it would be nice to have a nice enduro bike as well as a nice DH bike but they both cost soo much these days!! My idea was to get a Cannondale Claymore and swap out parts from ride to ride; Dual crown fork, heavy duty wheels, flat ... more »
