    I looked and I have an ample supply of these cages.

    All I buy at this point are Kings or Nittos, but on the right bike they are just right.

    Very similar. :)

    I think the Bilenky has some of the thickest paint I have yet to see.

    I like it a lot, but they weren't shy with the coats.

    The new 6800 cranks have grown on me.

    Such a great groupset (6800) for the bucks if you are looking at the right spot.

    Wouldn't hesitate to build with it at this point.

    I used to be very open to test rides, but I had a fellow tip over a bike quite a few years ago. Put a nice scratch in the top tube and he informed me the scratch was already present.

    So easy to goose people. :)

    To be sure, I couldn't really care what most people ride.

    FWIW I had a nice De Rosa SLX that I lovingly rode for six years with DA 7400.

    It never exploded once....

    Well that depends.

    If you are going to hang it on a wall, show it off to your friends and ride it every other Sunday, that C Record would be a great choice.

    I really believe they make as many as they are able each month.

    I've been recommending Frost River to Acorn fans. They make great products for backwater kayaking and canoeing.

    Well DD, I am just about to finish the build on my Kvale and I came to the same conclusion.

    Toss on the Open Corsa SCs. Just a great tire for the $$$.

    FWIW I use the BB7s on my Fargo.

    When I do the rebuild I'll go Spyres. While the BB7s seem to work fine when they are dry, they downgrade quickly in the rough.

    Thanks.

    I'll let my wife know she got a compliment on her bike. :)

    We can be out for a ride and her Stumpjumper always gets the nods over my Fargo.

    I certainly understand why.

    I would switch those nice Maxxis tires out for Resist Nomads or Schwalbe Fat Franks/Big Apples.
