I’ve been asking around about a replacement bike. Here are the threads I’ve been involved in:
So it looks like I want a Santa Cruz Heckler, with a D kit, and a rear shock upgrade to the Fox RP23.
Unfortunately, my local bike shop J-Town Bike does not have it in stock. There is a shop in south Miami that has it, Elite Cycling and Fitness for $1900 without the shock upgrade. I would prefer to purchase locally, but will go outside Jupiter if I need to.
I’ve also contacted a shop in Denver, Denver Spoke. They have the frame in stock, and are now finding out if they can get the D kit and shock upgrade. They know I have a deadline of the end of the month. Their price is $1700.
