Awesome. Thanks C Law. So far it seems like a pretty solid bike. We shall see with a bit of riding. I will probably change out the stem, seat post, and handlebar, though. Never heard of Skye and I can't seem to find any reviews.

^ probably because of that carbon fork on there. Looks like he is a bit of a weight weenie and didn't want the dual bangers. One banger is ok but 2? well, thats one too many bangers, isn't it now.

Yup, the same IRD. Sorta obscure frame, ya don't see many around town. At least I haven't. And yeah, BB7s. They're simple, cheap and effective. You've got a keen eye, my friend.

s'cuse my ignorance... "dual-bangers"? as in bangers and mash? Sorry, mashed potatoes and sausages are too heavy for cycling food. I'd rather go with a couple packets of Gu and a bottle of Accelerade

I'm not a true weight weenie but I certainly don't want excessive weight if I could help it. This one's my "simple" bike without going SS. I still have my hardtail w/ sus fork and my full suspension bike for those other days I don't wanna go "simple".

IRD Dual-Bangers mechanical discs. They're set up to squeeze inner and outer pucks into the rotor ('dual action' rather than one fixed and one moveable like the Avids). I was really just kidding though, based on them being from the same 'family.' From everything I've read, BB7s work better than the IRDs regardless.

Ahhh... I never knew the IRD discs were dual action, thought they were Avid clones.
