Thanks for the advice. I’m gonna go in later this week and test out a Roscoe 7 and a Stache 5. I’m also gonna make sure they are set up for me too. I’m pretty sure the stache 7 I rode didn’t have properly inflated tires cause the person that helped me didn’t know a lot about the bikes in the shop and answered a couple questions wrong that should’ve been kinda no brainers for someone in there selling these things. So hopefully come Friday I’ll have me a bike again. I got the okay from the wife so I’m safe on that front.
Good deal. I have tried to do a lot of research but tons of it can be pretty conflicting depending on what camp the writer/reviewer is sitting in. Just didn’t want to end up with too much bike (probably not a bad thing). I just didn’t want to regret not spending another $150 for what the Marlin 7 has which is likely overkill for my needs at this point and the extra money can be put into all the other things I need to hit the trail.
