Sold 888's for $325

Bought:

SX Trail (used) - $1600
Marzocchi 66's (used) - $350
King Headset - $129
Chain - $34
Tires - $20

Broken parts through the season are always what kills me but the goal this year is to never miss a ride due to broken parts. I'm gonna mail order and stock up on the parts I always break so the tally is gonna go up fast in the next few weeks.

The SX Trail came with with an XT rapid rise rear derailer. Anyone care to trade it for a regular-ol' shifting XT rear derailer? Or SRAM if we swap shifters too.

I'm always a little stand-offish when asked "How much you spend on that?" Seems to me an uncouth question bordering on impolite. Should have perhaps made it a poll

[HTML_REMOVED]#8226; less than 500 so far
[HTML_REMOVED]#8226; 500+
[HTML_REMOVED]#8226; 1000+
[HTML_REMOVED]#8226; 5000+ and please don't tell the wife

You can all go to hell. I'll be joining you shortly and I'm bringing beer and cheetos.

DH/FR: $2000 for my brand new switch, it was on sale
DJ/Street: $800 on my flow dj, bought off a friend, practically new
and I'm gonna buy a new fork, probably an argyle, to replace the '06 dj1 on the flow.

So I'm looking at a bit over $3000 for this year. Not bad.
