    im leaning toward the five euro classic xt setup.. but we will see if it stays so low. the campy setup ends real soon, and its tempting.. but i dont feel like getting burned on ebay tonight and i have no idea if theyre all that good.

    Poke around this site, they have a lot of things, although sometimes they are hard to locate. I've ordered from them many times with no problems.

    Those 5 euro XTs are a pain to set up. Not the easiest to find decent pads for them either. The new Shimano are much easier to adjust and use standard V-brake pads.
