I'm sorry, I can't help it. It's a Sachs/Penton/KTM lineage thing.

I think that's the only other strike against it.

I think, gastro, that if youre going to race 24 hour events on it you really need some lighter pedal pins, as the ones you have are way too heavy for such hijinks.

You really have no idea do you?

Since the thread started, I think I had one long weekend of lift rides and subsequently I've put about 2 miles on it, logged solely by moving it around and around the garage. Looking forward to Snowshoe opening weekend in May though (sixth years running, woohoo).

A couple of issues I need to address - need to get some vinyl tubing and cover the shifter cable where it runs on the top of the chainstay. I think I will try neoprene tape on the bottom of the stay since it doesnt really take enough of a beating to justify a full on mongo wrap. And I need to get spare parts for the 888 ATA to have on hand since my confidence in its durability is not high at this time.

sick bike dude.

Quick question: Why the 105 rear derailluer as opposed to a mountain rear derailluer?
