Default Mtn bike?

I'm looking for a new mountain bike. I'm into more hairy things, so weight isn't as big of a deal to me. But i'd still like it around 27lbs or so. Front or full suspension, preferably a smaller, better manufacturer....

Any recomendations?

You got it wrong, sell any bikes you have and build that motor up!

I my Trek.

It'* about 20 lbs, 21 speed, aluminum frame.

Mine has no shocks, but I like to feel the road. It'* held up VERY well, not to mention that it'* a very similar color to your car

*ahem* mine'* Shimano too ya know and the trek is about 4 years old with heavy use, looks brand new (wish i had a digital cam)...our family had bad luck with Schwinns...

Jim, if you can throw your bike in the rora, we should go out to the country and go biking if we have some offtime during BVille Fest.
