    Scrod,

    I want to make the plunge into compact drops. Is there a reason why your Hood Rat bars are on sale? Should I pony up for the RHM 02s?

    No reason other than the price being low. A lot of people have been wanting to give compacts a try and we figured we'd put an inexpensive option out there so if someone buys them and ends up not digging them all that much, they won't be out a a lot of money.

    This is why we love Scrod.

    I'm excited for the stem/handlebars to come in. The flatter bars must be suuuuuuper comfy.

    Thanks man. We're still dialing a few things in but we're pretty stoked about how it turned out.

    Hey Scrod,

    Just placed an order for the Vtrack + Sylvans and the Kool Stop bead jack. I also sent a message through RG about my shipping address (paypal is iffy sometimes).

    Super psyched man, can't wait for them to get here. Thanks a bunch.

    Argh, the hood rats look nice, but the flat surface won't work with my current braking set up

    I think having a dummy brake and a real one might work. We'll see what's in my future!

    Yeahhhhh, I was thinking the same. I bought them anyways, I'll figure out the brake situation when they get here lol.

    Why? Unless you have lower back problems and issues with long reach I don't see any problem with hoods besides spending some more $$$.

    Okay, Scrod, super petty request here... but would you mind putting the components category in alphabetical order

    It took me a while to find wheels (probably just me).

    Fair enough. I'm still debating on that or a carbon fork. Mainly just for better tire clearance haha. Black should look fine on my white bike, but I don't think chrome would work since everything on there is either white or black.

    A chrome fork always looks good IMO.
