Bike Price List Wanted + Boulder, Colorado info.

Post by Colin Tucke » Wed, 13 Jan 1999 04:00:00


Hi,

I am spending the 2nd year of my degree in Colorado, USA, and I am planning to
buy a new bike while I'm there.  However I'm having trouble finding out the
recommended retail prices for many bikes, does anyone know a good place to
find out this kind of information.  I am looking to spend a few thousand
dollars, so I'd like prices for high end GT, Giant, Trek, Specialised, and
Gary Fisher bikes in particular.

 I race cross-country, and therefore will probably buy a hard tail although I
am considering xc full suspension since I get the impression the terrian
around Boulder, Colorado would suit a full suspension bike.  Is this true?  I
don't like the idea of dragging extra weight up the long climbs, but don't
want to suffer too much on the downs, so I suppose it depends how technical
the trails are.  Any advice (especially from locals) would be great, thanks.

cya

Colin

Mountain Bike published a review of 1999 products, including suggested
retail and weight of many different items.
