  1. Does it foul soon after starting? Trail riding? On the track? Last top end service? Mix ratio change? Wrong heat range? So many questions really need to be answered first, but basically is this a new problem with an old bike or did you just get the bike?
  2. I'm looking to buy a new road bike, what do you guys think of this one https://www.giant-bicycles.com/us/tcr-advanced-sl-2-kom-2017 Like it or suggest an equal. Thanks
  3. Still twice the Mongoose XR29 Pro. Look, it's not the best bike money can buy.... BUT it is the best new bike $300 can buy!
  4. It's only sold at Walmart online, not in the stores. Show me a better bike for $300 that a beginner should consider. Your analogy was lame, no beginner would freestyle on any bike. Read the opening post
  5. Hey ToadalyCrazyCanadian, I'm not sure what the problem is with you and I and I'm not interested in arguing opinions. My point was that someone could do some mtb riding for an initial $300 investment for a brand new, upgradable bike. Naturally your used bike at $900 is going to be a better bike than a new $300 bike. Beginners need to start somewhere, and if money is tight, the Mongoose is not a bad choice. Most beginners don't know what they are looking at when considering a used bike, so I wouldn't suggest going on Craigslist or something like that to buy a bike. I am glad that you found a nice bike at a fair price.
  6. not even close... I own this bike and raced it (as a back up) in a Cat II race and podiumed. Stock, that is.... add a decent shock and forks, you got $800 invested in an otherwise $2,000 bike
  7. When he raced locally in our district, people would crowd the fences to watch him ride, he was that good back then. While he still is that good today, I think almost having no ride, other than by the bad luck of another racer, that humbling cleared his head and gave him back the drive he was lacking. It's nice to see him up front, I hope the roll he is on continues. Phil Nicoletti is another local fast guy, but he never drew a crowd like Barcia did.
  8. get this bike, outstanding value and easily upgradable https://www.walmart.com/ip/29-Mongoose-XR-PRO-Men-s-Mountain-Bike/16913467
  9. I think that you can't go wrong with a 27.5x3 carbon hardtail. I have the Framed Marquette with a 1x driveline and it is an awesome "do-it-all" bike, perfect for the northeast type of rocky trails and climbs
  10. After around the $4000 price, the bikes get lighter, more expensive components but not necessarily better. You can't buy speed, only time on the bike will do that. I suggest that you ride more bikes, regardless of their price until you find "the one". When that happens, you will know it and be happy with your purchase. Looks like you have already made up your mind on a FS bike, so that narrows it down quite a bit.
  11. I can't help but think of all the trust he had in his doctors and faith in his recovery to race last night. It just goes to show you what determination can do and his is legendary now. Great job KR!
  12. That's when you break out the XC skis on go 8 miles like I did today. It was a balmy 3 degrees with a wind chill of -16 https://www.strava.com/activities/1343915576
  13. cchurchi, give us the run down on the e bike. Pro's/Con's, practicality and etc...
  14. Biking uphill to the mountain top lake....
  15. Where to start..... could be as simple as a faulty temp sensor, or faulty water pump to head issues. I would check the radiators and verify the fins are clean and not mud packed. Then, add new coolant with an additive to prevent cavitation. If that doesn't help, check (just rebuild) your water pump and replace the seal. I'm thinking it isn't a serious problem if it takes an hour for the light to come on. Riding slow trails alone could set off the high temp light, since there isn't enough air going through the fins.
