    hrmm.. so my work does a $2500 interest free 'loan' for fitness items, that can come off my paycheck for the next 24 months.. Contemplating that and going new, add a $1000 from selling ice gear..

    picking a bike is worse then a restaurant with 17 pages of items

    been still riding my HT doing blues around Invermere at Johnsons, Juniper heights, old coach and Swansea... love the simplicity of HT, and most of the trails

    I even hit up some black sections and cleaned them well... only things that I wish I had suspension for is climbing roots and rocks.

    The flowey blues and black sections are so much fun to ride, and HT is so nice for the climbs and flickability

    I think though, I will look at the downcountry genre of bikes... even though a Bronson, Genius etc.. are so much more planted on the downhill, if I spent 2/3's of the time climbing, I think a Fuel EX, Element, etc... with a 120/130 front/110 rear would be sufficient.

    I would love to see a mid-fat 29er (2.6 x 29) HT with a good 130+ front fork and see how that would go... everything I see other than the stache seems to be 27.5+ and I'm impartial to niners these days

    A Honzo ST with 29er carbon wheels at 35mm and 2.6's may be a really fun bike.

    Even a 120/100 is perfect for around here. I ride mine on all the trails around here, we really don't have anything in the Calgary area the requires more than that unless you are looking for jump lines. Over-biking really makes riding here boring. If you take a look at the new Tallboy I really think that's the bike 90% of people need, I just wish the head angle was a degree steeper.

    Trance (3?) for 1500 would be nice. How are the conditions of those rental bikes? Where? I would be interested to get one in size small. I don't know much about mountain bikes at all but toyed with the idea of a Trance 2 after reading some suggestions here.

    If you're buying a rental bike, I really suggest you get an independent inspection (i.e. not from the shop you're buying it from).

    I'll go through it thoroughly on my own, used to race DH a LONG time ago, built 4 bikes and used to be a bike tech...

    I just want a bike I can get back into things with.

    Definitely, chatting with the guy he kind of laid out their pre-sale repairs/ checks and they sound relatively thorough.
    But i’ll be looking it over with a fine tooth comb.
