Hey everyone just joined to get a few questions answered maybe even hang out with a few of you guys once I come out. I leave for Yokota on the 17th will be there the 18th. My question is I've been wanting a mountain bike for a good while now I've done some research and looks like I'm in the market for a giant trance x4 I've been trying to find some locally on Craigslist and even in Tokyo Craigslist but havent had much luck, now if I can't find any used ill more than likely shell out the cash for a new one. Should I wait till I get to Yokota to buy new or buy new in the states. I'm not sure what LBS' are around Yokota and I'm not sure what the difference in shipping would be Japan vs America. Any input would be appreciated, maybe even a different bike choice? For the price difference would the yukon fx be a better choice for me?
