Sorry, No
I'm a firm believer in SC bikes (I ride a Nomad) but you might get just as much bang fo a lot less buck in a Giant.
Just my $0.02

Should I spend money to upgade my fork suspension? How about a seatpost suspension?

Should I add this:



To this:

Passion Trail Bikes in Belmont http://www.passiontrailbikes.com/. I haven't had them build wheels, but I've had them do other work and they're a quality shop. If you were further south, I'd send you to Tread.

Got a couple of used sets I'm selling - a set of Crossmax SLs and a set of Spinergy Xyclone Discs. Know what you're looking for, and how much you're looking to spend?
