    I ordered early this morning before coming back to this thread. It may have swayed my decision. I ended up ordering some 6" dykes and lineman's pliers by Irwin (vise grip). We'll see.

    Okay, cool. So that Fuji I was riding when I got the concussion? Yeah, I broke the frame. Sigh. New frame time. Not sure - another 26er (full suspension?) or sell off the parts and get a SS 29er (trek rig)

    I'll be racing XC this season. I just LOVE my terralogic fox, and can't imagine riding a non terralogic now.

    That's what you get for making a final decision before consulting with the expert panel on BF!

    i had to google "alfine setup mtb" (ducks head).

    i'd prefer a cassette to an internal hub anyway. actually, i've never owned a bike with internal gears in the rear hub so i can't say.

    Why say it if you can't say it?

    (I get it...I "assume" that I wouldn't dig internal much either...though the only exp I have with it is 3spd Sturmey's)

    All I can find on Pexto is vintage stuff that looks like it's been rode hard and thrown in saltwater.

    ^^ I kid. I was digging in my toolbox the other day seeing what I had (an amalgamation of my tools and things I inherited from my dad) and found out a pair of lineman's I have are Pexto. Blew me away - - I thought they only did sheet metal tools.

    If I had my druthers, my box would be full of Snap-on.

    Instead of starting a should I buy this I'll ask here.

    2009 transition tramsam frame, new manitou circus fork, new slx crankset set up 1x9. Thomson post, avid juicy 7s, blk mkt bars, fsa headset, sun ringle Charger pro wheel set new. New tires.

    For 1000 bucks. Bike was owned by a shop owner who only rode it to work and never on trails, ridden less than a dozen times. Yay or nay?

    Tough call. Lightly used but it is used. Frame still only retails for $700; but that one has decent partz. Not a deal but not overpriced. Really think you need to talk to Kev and see if he'll cut you some sort of bro deal on a new.
