    nice bike

    Vassago seems to be the hot brand right now.

    I'd love to ride one to test out the geometry.

    try not to get your new bike dirty. just keep it in your family room and look at it when you watch tv like i do with mine.

    1. Very noisy...louder than CK. (I like loud freehubs)
    2. Light (need to use a spider'd cassette b/c individual cogs eat into it)
    3. Positive engagement!
    4. Rolls smooth.
    5. Piece of cake to rebuild. (ya can take most of it apart with your hands)


    Best upgrade I've done to my ride.

    (I know the Q wasn't for me, but I never pass up a moment to talk up Hope Pro II's)

    +1

    LX and Hone were supposed to be fairly equal but for different purposes. LX being lighter duty and Hone for the aggressive "rough rydah". The Hone 2-ring crankset was a slightly different beast b/c it was a "3-way" with Daddy being Saint and his 2 biznatches were LX and XT. Their freaky little offspring had a reverse LX spider, Saint pedal inserts, LX arms, XT/Saint spindle, XT rings.

    SLX is supposed to "integrate" all that crap and offer a group that is LX level with a few different offerings dependent on your intended purpose.

    (to the best of my knowledge)
