wtb cranks

I just bent my xt cranks the other day and hoping to replace them soon without spending tons of $$. I am needing a 68/73 170mm cranks that are lightly used or new. In particular looking for atlas fr /am in silver or blue or gold or good old shimano XT. I don't really need bb or chainrings. Anyone out there have what I need

Thanks

Lanusse headset

Hey Lou

Is that bearing (mp 16 ??) for that darn Lanusse (FSA) headset still on its way. I still do not have my fork back yet but hoping that the timing would coincide

ETA?

XO rear shifter woes

I have an XO rear shifter that is not working. Large paddle clicks but does not advance the gear. Small paddle does not click at all. It is of 05 vintage. I am hoping to revive it but not sure what is the issue with it. From what I can tell the top spring is broken.

Questions
1) Are the internals of that year XO compatible with other models of different year

2) Does anyone have a dead shifter lying around that they would like to part with so I can gut for parts. Obviously it must have compatible guts

Thanks

Thanks people for your suggestions

Had a great time exploring some of the trails here.

Jeremy:

Too bad we were not able to hook up for the ride. If you ever need a guide for the shore, send me a pm.

Thanks Skifreak and others for the reply. Keep it coming.

I will look into that loop. Are they well marked? Is it easy to get lost up there?

Looking forward to it.

This might be posted in the wrong place but I thought I would try here.

I am over here in Courtney for the week and hoping to hop on my bike to ride some trails in Cumberland. I am planning to buy a trail map and head over to Dodge city cycles for their suggestions but hoping get a head start on some ideas before I even go to the bike store.

I have my Reign X1 and looking for some downhill/freeride type trails that are not too crazy as I am here by myself that is unless anyone wants to do some guiding. Are the trails well marked in Cumberland?

Any suggestions??

You can buy some protective film for the screen at london drugs in their camera dept or you can buy the garmin case made for that unit

Light recommendation for newbie?

Does anyone have any experience with the cost of replacement hid bulbs in Light and Motion systems

Is it done locally or is it sent to Cali?

Gamut

I have not used the LG1 but I would seriously consider gamut guides. Simply, they are light, durable, do the job and the company will offer great support

There are good companies and then there are great companies. It is great to have a company go above and beyond what is expected in terms of customer service. Gamut has amazing customer service. They responded to my email within 24 hours. They stood behind their product and went beyond what I expected as a response to my email. To boot, they sent me a bunch of their stickers. While it is not always the case, I find that the bigger the company, the less they concern themselves with customer service. It is nice to have the personal touch of smaller companies because they focus on the customer just as much as their product. I can truly say that I will support this company the next time I am in the market for a chainguide

Thanks Gamut!!

Hey Lou

I lost the axle cap for my relatively new Wellego MG-1. Any chance you would have one from an old pedal or if you can order it in for me? Someone on this board said that the axle caps for most Wellego pedals are the same.

Wanted MG-1 parts

I am looking for a cap "nut" for the axle for my MG-1. In addition to keeping crap out of the axle and bearings, It also holds the axle in place somewhat. If you have some dead mg-1s, I would love to get this part. I will pay even

Thanks
