I understand the intention of your original post. You missed my implication that aluminum is only a sufficient material for racing frames.

Less adjustments/maintenance, more shoes.

You should check out "Why?"

Because you need brakes when you race.

Your bike isn't cute or cuddly, it's full blown sexy.

Only the seattube and downtube are chromo. Try to get as much chromoly in the frame as possibly. If you can't possibly go over $400, make sure you get a chromo main frame at least. This is better.

You should be able to see it some time after midnight to the N/NE.

I'm not an old user or anything, but it's kinda been like that since day one. I don't like to surround myself with negativity, not good for the spirit (sound like a tree hugger). But you know, it's like this, life is full of responsibilities and stress, ... more »

Funny that you got caught with a "hot" bike, cause I was gonna suggest a Stolen. If you ride brakeless and can come up with $410, the Sinner is a good deal.

KMC 510 all the way. The 710 SL stretches like silly putty.

I mean, damn... I make good money too, but not enough to be buying parts like that.

Reply to GEAR RATIOS 8/11/2009 1:12 PM

I wouldn't be comfortable going that much over 3 on my ratio. Getting your speed back up in time to hit the next jump could be difficult, especially if you had to slow down for the previous jump. You might get tired pretty quick too. Depends on the trails ... more »

Spending that little on a bike is sick. Props.

Reply to bad habbit $$$$$$ 8/11/2009 12:53 PM
