It's a very nice area with some good climbs. We start from downtown Toronto so it's usually longer rides. I wish I lived there so I could ride there all the time.

I don't think any bikes come with the hydraulic seatpost stock.

No mine doesn't have the dropper seat post. They are nice but too expensive. I'd rather have the remote front suspension lock out. They come really handy for climbs, I don't do nearly enough downhill to justify the dropper seat post.
Usually the high end bikes come with the dropper seat post, I think the carbon Cannondale Jekyll has it but that bike is nearly $10,000

Sometimes lower priced bikes have it too for sure what I meant was in general you'd see the dropper seat post on high end models.

Don't forget the old bikes have canti brake systems the new bikes are all hydraulic disc brakes. The frames are much beefier these days also.

true true, where's the two other chainrings and it looks like it's missing the right side of the fork? just kiddingSpectralMeat wrote: ↑Dec 8th, 2012 7:21 amDon't forget the old bikes have canti brake systems the new bikes are all hydraulic disc brakes. The frames are much beefier these days also.
My bike isn't the lightest, there are still a lot of weight that can be saved but it is a good starting point. I think my wheels would need to be replaced to make the bike a lot lighter. Also keep in mind I was using the bathroom scale so it isn't exactly the most accurate measuring device you can think of
