More than I initially thought of spending but #YOLO it's a carbon frame 29er that was $3500 less than two years ago.
That will be awesome.

Yeah, biking is expensive. My full suspension bike was 3k, and it's no where near top of the line. A buddy spent 4700 on the next better one.

Here's what I use to get to the beach.
Where do you sit and how much do you pay her?

At 6k (AUS dollars) mine's good value. If I went all out it would be a custom build starting with a Pivot frame adds up to 10k + which is just too much for me to justify. Friend just got his new Yeti and that was about 8k (AUS dollars). I started with a $1k, then 4 years later a 4k and then 10 years later a 6k. I ride a **** load. It's not unusual for people to buy a 1k bike and they just sit there collecting dust. It's also not unusual for people to have 4-6 bikes. I have just one bike. It's treated like the precious thing that it is.

It's also not unusual for people to get their bikes stolen by thieves who target mountain bikes. They particularly like to steal from those ****ty storage cages in apartment block garages. They spray over CCTV cameras and rip off bikes. Been cases here where organisaed thieves check public race results. Thinking these competitive people have good bikes, then they use phone listings to work out where they live. Had a detective explaining to us that here bikes are stolen by organised crime and then sent north to be shipped out of the country in containers. People typically thought it was just opportunist crack heads. Mine (kid's and wife's) are locked down to the fattest chain I could get which is dyna bolted to the concrete floor with the bolt tops coated in epoxy, under a cover, in a lock up garage in a good neighbourhood with private community security and they are insured. Every tool that could be used to get through those chains has been removed from the garage and stored (and locked up) somewhere else. Except for a couple of sentimental things in the house, if they break in I hope they take just about anything else except my PC, or my f'n bike.

Currently have a Trek dual sport which is nice for just getting around when away camping/holidays whatever.

Yeah - probably. One of the nice things about getting older is not giving a ****.

That would be pretty uncomfortable without a crossbar, that gooseneck would grind right into the roids

I guess I should also point out that girlfriends usually don't have balls and you don't call it "riding *****" for nothing

I've got a E mountain bike. Love it, always makes me smile when i ride, especially up hills.

Full suspension cause i'm old and there are lots of roots where I typically bike.

It has sensors that assist when you pedal (no throttle) get a pretty good workout. If I didn't have elec, i doubt I would go out at all.

Skirting the laws all my life, why not when biking too.

Great find! I can't wait to read more, hear how it works out for you. I got back into mountain biking a few years ago. So much fun, and it's a great sport to enjoy with my kids.

Picked it up today, had a chance to beat it around the neighborhood trails and school (steps, curbs and ****)

I'm super stoked. It's such a refined machine...the 1x gearset is awesome and the shifting feels laser precise. Very happy so far, it's crazy light. I haven't been on a mountain bike since I was a kid and I can bunny hop this thing on flat pedals wearing my Adidas slippers.

Needs a wash!
