Come on, Start a Revolution or at Least Join in

When are you gonna take the blinders off, man? Ok, I realize that there are financial considerations at play here. Some of you are set in your ways, still riding your Manitou F/S from '95 and thinking your still in with the times. For the rest of you, though-there is no excuse. Stop whining about the fact you are "afraid" to try because you might like it. What the @#$!! is that? That's like someone offering you a million clams in all $10's and you turning it down cause you'd rather have all $5's, or something like that.

Get to your Trek/Fisher dealer and throw a leg over one. Seriously, you won't touch your 26"er again. It really does make that much of a difference. Especially if you are coming from the old school era where the MTB's used the same geometry as road bikes with 150mm stems and no room for adjustability. Don't let anyone tell you that they are for racing only. Even if you are just using it to ride casually and dont want a hybrid-and who could blame you. It may be the one thing that makes you get off your lazy keester and mount up and head outdoors. Enjoy!
