First, a general "Whaaazzzzzaaapppp" to everyone, old and new cause this is my first post in many a month. I've just been so busy with school and work that i've purposely avoided coming to the site in order to help supress my bike-aholic needs. Thanks, I have missed you all too. But fear not, next week, my Honey will come out of hibernation to continue her quest to master the one-wheeled dance!
Ryan R, the tank mount is out, the camera is prepped, and the batteries are charged.
(Yes CG, this means i might be coming out to boonyland to pick up my DVD too!!)
But on to other matters...I'm looking to get a very basic downhill mountain bike (with rear shock) to use for commuting, maybe some tricks and to hit some trails with. Not gonna be hard core downhill racing so don't need an expensive setup. Price range is under $350 taxes in. So my question is,
ARE CANADIAN TIRE BIKES any good at all?
For $299 i can get:
21speed (made by CCM)
26inch Kenda wheels,
aluminum dual suspension Y-frame,
Shimano Tourney 22 rear derailleur(what is that anyways)
made by "Supercycle":
dual suspension with swing arm (looks sweet but is it useful?)
26"x 2.3" oversized Demolition tires
Shimano Tourney derailleur
Mercalli suspension fork
If CT is not the place to go for cheap but quality bikes, where else in Vancouver should i go? (I live on the North Shore and am not willing to go to For Langly or Delta for this).All the North Shore stores seem to sell only hard core pro bikes.
Thanks in advance.
