i want a ratchet bad but i dont want to shell out the cash.
Yeah, I lucked out because of my wanting 48h wheels. The way I see it, I got the 48h ratchet for 100 and a free chrome Ribcage for my wife's bike, haha. I don't remember what I gave tito24 for the monkey, but it was brand new and, no matter how I look at it, under $300 for a brand new set of 48h Ribcages with Gsport hubs is a freakin sweet deal. I know you can get the ratchet for around $166 before shipping with the right code from albes, and who knows, you can probably get it cheaper through your shop, idk. Worth the money, esp laced to the Rib, imo, anyway.
