That's what makes it interesting.


No, it's dull.

I don't think he was referring to this thread, but what makes MTB interesting for him - how it all links together.

The product can not work without the sum of its parts, same as a car and so therefore there isn't a single 'main' component.

One is pretty much nothing without the other, ergo discussion is dull. ;)

I dont think theres a single Best Component, just get a collection of reasonably good components on a good frame, Now I'll throw my Kona Unit into the ring here, you look at it and theres not much going on there, most people dont get it, yet it handles so well due to great geometry, however the mechanical brakes were horrible so I threw on hydraulic ones instead, that was like geting a get out of jail free card, and once it went tubeless it was better and now that it has a carbon handlebar its just awesome. So a few small changes and your bike will rock- well only if it is worth upgrading from the beggining....

+1, apart from the dull bit. Besides, if it's so dull why are you here? :wink: plus I think he was talking about the relationship between components, which isn't really dull - if you like bikes
