No. Do not get any of the parts packages. They have a lot of Poverty parts, which make them suck.

The Macneil stem is actually pretty good, but I wouldn't quite go with that headset. Also, please do us a favor and type things out.

We're being talked about in another forum--

"lets all type in lower case and not use punctuation"



I know if you are using a mobile phone that those capital letters are tough! Do apostrophes even exist on mobiles?
