Do you have that for sale right now? Thought I saw it on CL the other day...

sloar 02-28-14 08:13 AM

Not for sale, kinda hoping to trade for a full suspension. Not sure I want to now, took it out yesterday for the first time and I like it. Very fast bike.

Millerad1651 02-28-14 10:14 AM

Oh ok...I knew it looked familiar though. There hasn't been much around lately FS wise (at least for a decent deal). Take a look around Cincy, Columbus and Louisville. I picked up my Kona for a deal in Louisville...they seem to have a decent selection.

I agree, Indys Craigslist has been horrible!

I put on new Stans ZTR rims with X9 hubs, Rock Shox SID race RLT forks, White X9 Carbon Shifters, white X9 Rear derailleur, White Avid Elixir brakes, FSA Carbon Seatpost bars and stem, and some nice Tioga pedals. Pretty nice bike for an REI bike.....25lbs.

Its Jagwire Elite link Mountain Cable. Easiest cable housing I have ever installed. The little alloy links slide over the inner housing. Shifter and brake cables are different...and I don't think they make one for hydraulic brakes. But it is also SUPER light....and a little spendy.

Hey, nice bike! I've got an '04 4500, too but I got it off craigslist and had to give it a little TLC. Looks like you've taken awesome care of it!
Funny that our paint jobs are flip-flopped.

Yeah, that bird cage is really cool. I wouldn't mind a couple for my Cannondale.

Looks good, though I think that paint scheme is from'03. I hope you enjoy it. It's a great bike for light to moderate trail use.

Maybe it was an early paint job or something, because I confirmed it was a 2004 by checking the drivetrain components. From 2003 to 2004 they changed the RD from Alivio to Deore and this bike came with a Deore that looked just like yours. It was toast when I got it though, so I replaced it with an older Deore RD a buddy of mine had laying around.
