What made you buy the bike you have? Was it because the local shop carries that brand? Or was it the cool guy down the street had that brand?
I picked up my epic because it was a closeout and I saved a crap load of cash. Then I went with my heckler because the frame was faaaaaar less expensive then other FS frames on the market.What made you buy the bike you have? Was it because the local shop carries that brand?

I wanted a fast bike and all the fast guys around me were riding Scalpels. So, I went on Ebay and picked up a 2005 Scalpel 3000 with full XTR. Wow, what a great bike. The tubeless rims, Lefty fork, and XTR group were a huge upgrade from my first bike a 2004 Specialized Stumpjumper.So what made you drop the coin on your sweet ride???
What are your thoughts on the resolutions?I bought my Stumpy (FS) after 3 years on a Hard Tail Trek. I wanted to FS so I asked a friend what he recommended. He suggested the Enduro, but I didn't like the look. He then said Stumpjumper. He called his LBS and they hooked me up with a nice price and ordered it. My bike is great for me. The Fox Septune was just Pushed this past December after locking down. The only upgrade had been a XT cassette, rear Landmax wheel, Resolution tires, chain and grips. Looks like a new saddle this year and upgrades on whatever else breaks. I got my moneys worth out of my ride
