    Just sooooo many orders. We are back ordered to high heavens on some things. The demand is high right now. And we also have a few projects going on, right now just a few Tundras for Toyota to showcase at Super cross which is pretty sweet. As well as the NEW 6100 race truck that is to be finished and race ready by Feb. 1st for the Parker 425. We are all stoked to see how it performs. Always busy busy!

    Hey guys in looking into buying my first mountain bike. I will be riding it to school and work and the occasional weekend trail. Where should I start looking?

    You should buy two. A lesser quality one to commute on and a nicer one for your trail stuff. And buy locks for both ;)

    Go check out what your bike shops have. You may find a left over 2013 for a good discount.

    Do what everyone else said. I got my bike half off cause it was last years model. If you search Craigslist you can find some good deals on cheap bikes. I got a 29er single speed steel for around $200. Made for a good commuter.

    id go medium for sure a lot of guys i ride with run larges at 5'10-11"
    unless its a 29er then you might be able to get away with a small, id go med unless you find a really good deal on a small thats a 29er
