I am in the same boat regarding back pain... tell us more about the Fascia Manipulation. Thanks!Excellent!
Yeah, the bikes are a blast.
If you continue to have back pain see if you can find a physical therapist or DC that practices FASCIA MANIPULATION. I've had about 8 back and neck injuries so my back is like popcorn. Regular doc says I have chronic arthritis and I have had on and off severe pain as well as ongoing dull pain. I got a referral to a guy here locally and after three visits he fixed it! I've been the most pain free in the past dozen or more years.
Levo Comp is an awesome bike. Have you ridden the Giants? Can you compare them?
My wife isn't interested in dirt, but she loves pavement and bike trails. We are having a blast! I'm still trying to decide if and when I could actually get out for mountain biking. I sure enjoy learning about what's out there - the technology is just amazing.
Here is another mountain bike to consider if you want a nicely spec'ed Shimano E8000 system under $3.5K
