    I've bought several used frame from some forums and ebay/craigslist and I've bought new frames and complete bikes online. The last complete bike I bought from an LBS was a Stumpy back in '08. Having...

    I use Boeshield T-9 to treat areas you speak of. Prevents corrosion on various parts of the bike and it's an excellent long lasting chain lube.

    Anti suck chain device. Common during the 90's... Some worked, some didn't.

    edit: never mind. reading skills suck.

    When all was said and done it was $700 not including shipping and paypal fees. It was well worth the conversion in my opinion as it breathed life into an old titanium frame and when I got it back it...

    I had my old ti Ibis converted to disc from V-brake set up and refinished by Steve Potts. He lopped of the old cable stops & canti studs and added saddle type cable stops and an IS disc mount.

    Bare aluminium frames look cool until the clear coat wears off and corrosion sets in. Looks like that bike has been neglecting and/or stored outdoors - I cringe at all that rust and corrosion.

    Uh... because bar ends offer up exactly that - alternate hand positions. They certainly aren't for, say, an aero advantage (though some may argue that) or a nifty retainer when you put your grocery...

    Been using bar ends since the 90s and like the hand positions they offer. Perfect on single speeds when honkin' on the cranks. Never had an issue "hooking" flora on the trail but I did hook a girl's...

    I use T-9 on my chains. It's also good as a framesaver and corrosion protection for parts on my daily commuter.

    The Hardrock is on the lower end of the Specialized line not worth much on the vintage/classic market, even older ones. If you had a Stumpjumper that'd be a different story. Have at the respray.

    Yup, have a set up Michie Race'rs that came the same way. A couple rides wears the white film away. No worries.

    The Fargo is quite perfect for backpacking and the frame and fork can handle whatever you want to bolt/lash to it.

    I've been using my El Mar and Warbird for bikepacking trips. The El Mar (with RS...

    If you check ebay, you can score decent deals. I picked up a set of Fulcrum Red Power 29 XLs for $173.

    Only the return policy abusers have their panties in a bunch. The change was a long time coming. One of the reasons their annual used gear sale was popular was because of their *more than* generous...

    Huh, really?

    I've heard that the Junction was a popular stop for both cyclists and motorcyclists and I've never heard of any "racist" issues. I never rode that way on a bike and when I rode my...

    Cool, I have the same frame built up 650b SS. I still kick myself for not getting the matching rigid fork.

    If my pot of disposable income was bigger, I'd give it a try but it'd be limited to certain *wider* trails. Frame and suspension bits look pretty good and not cobbled together. Fat tires and wheels...

    The one and only Steve Potts. He's amazing with titanium and I really like his IS disc mount as it spreads the braking force load across the seat stay and not just at the drop out.
