    I've got basic Deore stuff that is not amazing.

    XT: http://cycle.shimano-eu.com/publish/.../deore_xt.html

    Could do with a new fork, too, as my Rock Shox Tora fork isn't exactly cutting edge.

    Or, get a 105 specc'd road bike and keep MTB as is.

    I was seriously looking at a Giant Defy and still think that maybe I should have gotten that over the LHT, though I'm pretty sure I've carried enough cargo on occasion that it would have resulted in badness with the Defy. Seemed like a good road bike that had enough little compromises to make it a useful daily commuter as well. My only complaint was that I felt like it was slightly too pricey for what you got, I wanted at least a Tiagra equipped one and didn't feel like paying $1,100 for it. It's telling that I could barely find any being sold used, though, pretty sure the people who buy them end up really liking them and not getting rid of them.

    I meant what is the bike frame/spec orverall?

    Basic Deore is fine, actually. XT is nice, but SLX is the sweet spot IMO.

    If you want to go fast on the road, get a road bike. Upgrade the MTB if you're going to go off-road.

    Me, I'm going to try and sell my Remedy, in order to buy another Remedy in a proper size and with a good spec - thinking the 9.8/650b but with X01 and a Rockshox Pike. YEAAAHHHH

    In Florida, even the police hit and run:

    Witnesses: Orlando police car hit bicyclist, then drove off
