Reply to what size rear rotor on an All Mtn bike do you run? 5/9/2013 11:33 PM
Usually dual 180mm rotors.

Big B is on point. You'd be pretty dialed with a 50mm direct mount stem (and crown if needed), 750mm or wider bars, new brakes, and properly tuned suspension. That thing is a classic! Looks like the previous owner kept it in pretty good shape. Would ... more »

Reply to Bottom Bracket won't budge 12/31/2012 12:42 PM
