I am glad you live in AZ because I am pretty sure I deserve a backhand for this.
Chris has a bike on Ebay. I had a little fun with him without him knowing.
Dear jamochafudge1 (Chris),
How do you guarantee satifaction? Do you take returns? What if I cant get no...no no no... satifaction?

Hmmmm, I'm not sure what 'satifaction' is. But if you are asking if the bike will be what is described upon delivery, then you will probably be satisfied. I'm going to google satifaction right now.....
What races did you do on that bike? What were the trails like and how did the Paragon work for that aplication? I am thinking of doing some racing and I want a fast bike.
24 Nationals in Wausau, WI, 24 hours of Moab in UT, and the Payson Pounder in Payson, AZ. I've been riding them for 3 years and won't go back to a 26. Full suspension is overkill on a 29'er...you can rock a hardtail and have a great time. Wausau is smooth midwest singletrack, Moab is rocky hell and Payson is double rocky hell. These things ride technical terrain with ease. Good times.
Wow, you have done a lot of racing. That is what I want to do. Just a few more questions. You said the midwest was smooth and the other places were really rocky, would that be considered extreme riding and did you have to wear protection like a chest protector to ride those rocks? I dont know if I am ready to ride rocks and just want to be sure I will be bidding on something that isnt too extreme to ride and make me look like a poser. Sorry for all the questions but you are the only person who responds to me and you seem like you know what you are talking about.
It's a quality bike that is capable of being raced. You can find extreme stuff anywhere - if you're into that, then there are plenty of options regarding long travel full suspension and dirt jumping bikes out there. This bike is designed for cross country riding/racing. If you want to get into racing and want a solid bike, you'll enjoy the Paragon.
Like I said, Sorry Chris.
