    Anticipation

    I dont think Im going to be able to sleep for a week. I just got back from a different bike shop, and all of this weeks problems are behind me. They have agreed to sell me a 2004 Kona Stinky Dee-Lux for $200 (yes, $200!) along with the ETSX-70 as a trade in. It comes in next wednesday and I pick it up thursday. One of the best days of my life right here.

    You've already got Hayes hydro's on that bike, what are you replacing them with?

    The leverage screw just got to me. The HFX Nines piss me off and I finally decided to buy some new brakes.

    Nah, I was about to, but I just wasn't diggin' it. I know the P.2 is way better than the shred, but I just like the shred better. I am not doing any thing serious (yet) enough to really make me wish I got the more expensive bike

    So does everyone on ridemonkey. But oh well. I decided to save some cash. I'm getting the Mags at $150 per brake. He wants the nines for his beater bike (the old rockhopper i believe).

    You will like the Stinky. It took me 3 years before I broke mine but I also weigh at least twice as much as you. I have been riding Konas for 8 years or so and have always had good things to say about them. I do/did have others but Kona is my main ride.

    But I actually have them working good right now, they work better than hfx 9's on a good day. I break too many brakes to constantly run hydros come when I'm home in NJ I will run hydros.

    Dont worry Kona....but wait, are you running Hayes Mechs? I still love my Avid mechs....setup right, they rule. The lever pull is so smooth, with hardly any tension. But ran a Hayes Mech for the Sunapee DH.....and boy did I hate it...not to mention I couldnt stop at the bottom.

    Yes I am running hayes mechs during the fall winter and spring, then I put the mags back on. Will probably put a hydro on the front soon and just leave the rear as a mech and the only purpose for a rear brake is slow the bike down, which this does a good job of.

    Or maybe you could just loctite them right, or maybe trust the crazy mechanic that lives in a red house, and has a nice bedroom
