Shop Hours WTF

Can we please put a an end to this "good guy price" terminology? The shops
don't do a character test or criminal record check before they sell you something!

Fox 36 Van RC2 vs. Float RC2

I have a 36 float (first air fork I've ridden) and I think it is just
as good as any coil fork I've ridden. Super easy to adjust with a shock
pump and light weight.

Shop Hours WTF

totally took the first post the wrong way and agree with the above….with a but.

I can remember walking into a shop and the wife and i bought a pair of socks and a video. The Wife kindly asked if they had a good guy pricing and the guy said they reserve deals for their good customers…..fair enough.. A better reply might have been.."i'd love to give you a deal but the mark up on videos and socks is so little i really can't help you out, but on future purchases i may be able to help you….we have never bought anything from there again after that first purchase.QUOTE]

Why would you ask for a discount on $45 dollars worth of goods from a bike shop in the first place?? I don't think that the first shop's response was a bad one. I think it's pretty chintzy to ask for a "good guy price" for something that cheap when the staff don't know you from a hole in the ground. Esp. if you can easily afford to buy them at the regular price.

Looks like a well speced ride for $2599.00 complete on Price Point. Boxxers, Codes, Vivid, 43 lbs.
I don't see anything glaringly wrong with it for the $$$.

elka shock anyone

Do you really have to send Avalanche shocks in for service every 6 months or
is that just recommended for maximum performance. I was considering an Avy
but having to ship it to the States every 6 months is not too appealing. This would
be for the nitrogen re-fill.

GMG in December

Some of those lines made my palms sweat. Well done. You've got
serious confidence riding some nasty wood work.

Bars got stuck

Let me revise…. I'm 6"1 with a long torso, 32" inseam (short legs) and I ride a 4"
slopestyle rig with a 23" TT. 29" bars are MY sweet spot :)

29" is the sweet spot for bars IMO

Olympic Hangover - Goodbye To the 5-ring Circus

I must be the only one that thinks Neil Young's voice sounds like dragging your fingernails across a blackboard.

:scream: Your not the only one, they could put him in a room with suspected terrorists in Iraq.
