i fail to see how this is not 'pretty'. this bike is beautiful.. everything you need in the frame, but without all the add on crap.

id absolutely love to own one of these one day.

buy a bike rack... i dont see that as being a deal breaker. i like the added security of no QR system.

IIRC, they dont make ti springs for these cause they wanted to keep costs down for the end user. also why they dont include xtra springs.. i think its a cool idea not including springs, but i think they should have given you the option for what spring youd like.

thats why i said, ' its not a fair reason to say why bike mechanics shouldnt get paid that much, but its a huge benefit'. and 50-70% off msrp is what i was told from all my buds who work at shops, rather one agrees or not, it is a HUGE benefit to be able to build custom bikes for half off.. I cant stress that enough. anywho, building and repairing a bike really isnt that hard as long as you have common sense and a good mechanical background. and if you have the right (bike-specific) tools, its even easier.

painting is expensive because its hard work, (can be) dangerous, and no one wants to do it.. being a bike mechanic isnt any of those three. most of the time i walk into a shop, i see atleast a couple of mechanics usually sitting or dickin around, and one or two working. im not saying they dont do anything all day, but i really dont think that warrants a 25+ dollar an hour job..

This might sound a little harsh, but why would a job that most people would love to do, is not...

i dont agree with the 'love to do' part, but i agree with pretty much everything else (although i know that no one else is going to agree). being a bike mechanic really isnt that hard or challenging.. i dont think this is a job that someone should be getting paid a lot of money for.. there are readily available professional grade tools, and with some common sense, you could do literally everything that a mechanic could do in your own home. its not a highly specialized job that requires schooling, unlike other types of 'mechanic' jobs (diesel mech comes to mind right now)

now, another reason why i dont feel bad for mechanics getting paid is because they get their parts for so cheap. yeah, its not a fair reason to say why bike mechanics shouldnt get paid that much, but its a huge benefit. You have no idea how much time i spend trying to find good deals on the net, while you guys get to sit in your shop and look at a catalog and pick whatever the hell you want cause you can get it 70% off MSRP.

if you want a nice high paying job, stay in school kids.

that is quite odd.. oh well. i got them for super cheap... my stanchion tube squished the rear line on both rides, causing it to fail.. im going to give it another bleed and one last shot before i decide to sell em..

the front works really good, but just lacks overall power.. and the rear... well, i couldnt get it to stay alive lol

having stroker aces on my operator.. i must say, ive only ridden it twice and i would not trust them riding gnar stuff, let a lone the freaking rampage, with two less pistons... they just lack the over all raw power.

dude is nuts.. or maybe i got a bad set..?
