i just ordered the demolition vulcans allong with the fly pads and cable.
not worried about the pads and the cable fly always pulls through
but i havent heard much about the vulcans.
have you heard anything about them?
Decent reviews on them. BTW, the brake I wound up going with was the Dia Compe 990. The freebie bike I wound up with was brakeless because it was removed, so I chose to put a rear brake system from lever to gyro to u-brake on it. Wasn't cheap, you can get close to $ 100 into that at the LBS without trying very hard. Mine works great and am pleased with it. Could've spent more, even could've gone a little cheaper, this is a happy medium though.
I bought it thru the LBS and it was pretty much marked up for S&H and a few bucks more for profit. I paid about $ 40 for the Dia-Compe, $ 30 for the Odyssey Gyro and $ 20 for a single Black Ops brake lever. I could've done a little better on-line, but these were locally convenient and a few blocks from home. Prices on those on-line links don't include S&H, but I can't imagine being anything more than $ 6-8 more for each item if ordered separately. Like I said, I think they dinged me here and there for each item a little, shame on them, or really shame on me for allowing it to happen ?

Sounds like they knew what they were taking. If the police aren't already involved with the kids parents, they should be, of the one that knows ! And if the cops can't get anything out of him, you need to torture that one until he rats out his buddies and they produce one customized Simple Debut (blue) to your satisfaction.
weiil i found the kids that did it and they got arrested on like 2 fellonys and several other charges.
and i got some of it back...
frame partally sanded, bars also partialy sanded, sprocket painted flat black, front hub with the serial number sanded off the flange, stem un touched and my forks same as i lest them...
still missing front rim ans spokes, whole back wheel cranks pedals ans several other small parts...
Well, I hope the court makes them replace the whole thing for you from prison or wherever they put them. I'd really show up at their sentencing and get with the prosecutor and tell the judge that what you got back is unacceptable and an unusable mess. You're talking about kids here, so the best thing about it is they have parents that can pay, deeper pockets ! I don't know what you have into the bike for a build, but I'd say replacement front to rear is in order for just the bike is a reasonable expectation. Then they can have & keep the one they stole, with a bill and a juvenile record.

i ggot just under $1,300 before shipping, tax and labor.
Yeah, see $ 1,300 is quite a bit of money to let this go as a couple/few kids gone wrong. They do have parents and the adults can divy this up to really make it right. I think the judge will see it your way too. You know what you might do ? List components and track down prices on a spreadsheet. Where components are discontinued items, price out an equivalent alternative.
