    I've just gotten my first ever mountain bike (after 3 road bikes). One thing I've learnt, when you are shag out, no what what bike you are riding, it will still be tough going

    It's an Avalanche 1.0.

    I started looking for Jamies Trail X2 , X3, Durango 1, Ava 3 , 2 then finally 1.0.

    Starting to get confused then settled for the Ava 1.0 for its parts and it comes with clipless peddles, no need to spend more $ to buy.

    Your white Ava1.0 design is much nicer than my 06 model.

    Must be the 2009 model

    The beauty of a mountain bike is that you can go off road to be with nature as well as
    on the road if you choose a tire that can do both. Once you are well versed into riding the
    MTB both on and off road it is time you can think of upgrading the tires. This will also
    depend on how often you ride in both disciplines.

    The Maxxis lite 310 offers me the advantage of riding smoothly on the road (much lighter
    than a pair of knobby tires for sure).

    The advantage of the Ava 1.0 is because of the extra granny gear over the 2.0 or 3.0
    with its 9 speed instead of the 8 speed.

    The Suntour fork isn't amazingly light, however it's very smooth and reliable, the lockout
    allows you to use it just like a rigid fork especially when you are riding on the road.

    The Suntour fork requires almost no maintenance other than normal cleaning when it is dirty.
    Other high performance forks require frequent maintenance to keep them in tip top
    conditions.

    On how to choose the type of suspension fork:

    Enjoy mountain biking!

    Changed my Ava2.0 to a 9 speed too.
    Have a spare shifter and brake levers, so converted it.

    Changed the shifter pods on my 1.0 to XT, so the stock Deore transfered to my 2.0.
    No more $ to change other parts, but satisfy with current conditions.

    Rims: WTB SX-24 ATB with CNC brake surface
    Spokes: Stainless steel 14 gauge
    Tires: Kenda Nevegal 26 x 2.1
