    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 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.

    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.

    Compared to a normal cassette I would say it is about 85-90% as good. The shifting up into the GC is only a hair slower. Barely noticeable. Through the whole cassette it is fine. The jump with the 17t missing is a little noisy nut they all work really well. A+ from me.

    Thanks, it seems like Sram is having better results! I just upgraded to a x9 shifter to go with my x5 mid cage derailleur...can't wait to get it on.

    Just finished up the 650B conversion. Need a new cassette and it'll be ready for the trails. I just added a new bar, stem and grips.
