I recently bought a Trail Elite from Bikes Direct. I don't know whether to post it here or post it in Mountain Bikes. Since it is mostly a light trail bike. What I wanted was a bike with disc brakes and that was cheap. Well what I got was something that I am very happy with. A lot times I hear people bad mouth these bikes. So far I really can't find anything to complain about. The bike worked with a few minor adjustments. The bike has an aluminum 6061 frame and sram x4 derailuers and has tekro novela disc brakes. Everything works, and I'm happy with it. Now I'm going to mess with it and see what happens.
