I was the OP for this conversation, and was wondering about TCO for a
specific reason:  off-road riding an Atlantis with SPD pedals.  When I'm
clicked in, TCO is bad cuz' I'm not the fastest un-clicker-outer.  That's
mainly only a problem on singletrack.  My AR doesn't have it, but it only
fits 42-44mm tires.  I'm looking at bikes that fit full 29ers, of which the
Atlantis is one.

No disparaging remarks about Atlantis were made or intended at all.  That's
a GREAT bike, no matter how much mucus is all over it!  I'm trying to
rationalize buying one!!!!
