Yakima 1A towers / risers too

In need of 2 or 4 Yakima 1A towers - with hi-risers would be ideal.

Thanks!

John

I want a mountain bike. Anybody have one they want get rid of? I'm a noob, looking to get into it. Not looking to break the bank though.

I think I'd be looking for a large/19" frame (I'm 6'/32" inseam). Let me know what you have.

Gary Fisher Josua in great shape. I have not ridden it much since I got it. Sorry about the crappy photo just too lazy to bring it down off the rack. $400.



Size medium, Bar ends, rear rack & pack. Speedo that probably has dead batteries.

Can anyone recommend a shop or a mechanic in Loveland, Boulder or Ft Collins, thanks.
Really sorry to learn this Ian.

I have an almost stocker, core has been removed and I installed a nice tip. Would that suit your fancy? Would be willing to trade plus some cash maybe.

I'm also in the market for a mountain bike.

- Full Suspension

- 29er

- No Avid brakes (per the advice of my mechanic)

- XL frame only.

I've got one, not real impressed. May end up reverting back to my GPSMap x7x series. I'll let you know soon if I decide to sell.

How tall are you? I too am toying with the idea of getting a full suspension mountain bike. I'm 6'3", 35" inseam and I'm not sure if I need a L or XL frame.

I'm 6'2 with a 34" inseam. With that said, you should go try a bunch of bikes because there's more to it than that.

I was considering an XL Gary Fisher but it turned out to be too small (plus had those crap brakes). Turns out Gary Fisher/Trek also makes an XXL.

The XL Giant frame fits me pretty well.

I have yet to try others, but I'm shopping.
