I'd personally would go with the Scalpel. I'm personally not a huge fan of the Lefty. I also like the rear suspension design on the scalpel as well.

Yeah somewhat I figured. I can always return the BB to CRC I think? I'll go with 113 and see how it works out

OK, so after letting my BB soak in Liquid Wrench for a few days and multiple tappings, I finally got my BB out.(Took hardly any effort this time.) Next question is, the new crankset I just ordered recommends a 113 mm spindle length, but the BB i just ... more »

Found a meth/crack pipe at the local trail here in Boone, NC. Then while I was riding a trail is Pisgah NF(exact trail name escapes me right now) I rolled up on a bear eating a deer...needless to say I turned around and just rode back the other way.

Of course, you have JensonUSA, Chain Reaction Cycles, Price Point, and Bike Wagon. Also check out the buy/sell here and on PB. Some deals to be made there

I mean I guess your best bet is to probably look on Pinkbike in the Buy/Sell area and try to find what you like. How nice of a bike you want to get depends on how big your wallet is. You could be looking anywhere from $1000 to $6000. Some less, some ... more »

Are you looking to buy a new bike, or used? I mean you don't necessarily have to have a full suspension, its whatever floats your boat really. Next question is is what style of riding are you trying to do(DH, XC, 4X, etc.). Also next big question is ... more »

No, no typo. I was more reiterating your original post. By saying "This?' I was more or less asking the same question that you originally asked.

Yeah heat and the wrench are gonna be my last options. But thanks for your help. I guess if I can't get it out I'm just gonna take it down to my lbs.

Having experience with the Crossmarks in the mountains of NC, I can say they get plenty of traction on the trail. That being said I have never really ridden on sand so I dont really know how there gonna work there. As for roots and rocks, they handle ... more »

Yeah thats along the lines I was thinking. I've also read somewhere to heat the shell, to loosen up the BB? I don't really think thats a great idea. Also at my work we have a pneumatic ratchet gun that I could use, but part of me fears breaking my shell ... more »
