    Opinions on Mirraco Black Pearl 2

    I was all set to get a Stolen Wrap, but they seem to be backordered everywhere. Since thats the case I figured I would just get the 6-pack. Well at my local bike shop, I found a Mirraco Black Pearl 2 for the same price as the 6-pack, which makes it about $100 off of retail. It seems pretty nice...full chromoly...weighs in at 28 pounds with no pegs.(hide bike shop weigh it) I just cant find any reviews on it.


    Thanks

    Seems like a pretty good bike. One of the only things that the Six-pack has better is a cassette hub. One of the downsides is it has a European bb which I guess the bearings go sooner in. But go for it.

    It does only have a freewheel, but it's still the best bike for the price.

    I was wondering, would it be better to make a custom complete of my choice or get the frame I want and get a bike with good parts and switch the stuff.

    No my limit is endless, well kind of, whatever I want I'll have to work and save up for a while. But to clear the confusion, I want this frame, and I was wondering, would it better/easier to 1. custom complete or 2. Get the frame and a bike with decently good parts. Then switch the parts.

    Meh, either way, I'm going to get the custom, speaking of which, is the Fit park or team nice?

    The new Fit completes are coming out soon. There isn't much of a purpose of buying much at the present moment because Interbike is coming soon.

    I don't plan on using the whole bike, I'm thinking of getting a Fit park and taking everything but the frame.
