Thanks. It's been a while since I went to Carvins. I'd definitely like to get back out there with the new rig.
Cool. We rode Hi-Dee-Hoe, Gaunlet, Trough and Buck yesterday. Awesome. Weather has been great for riding.
I'm thinking my next bike might be an aluminum Tall Boy. Hope you get that brake thingie fixed. My rotor rubbed off and on the whole time I had my Avids. Switched to Shimano SLR' s and I really love them - and the total lack of squeaking.
If you come to town look me up. We can hook up for a ride.
I've been using Shimano M486's for the last couple of years. They came stock on my GF hard tail. My guess is they are not considered top of the line, but I really like they way the feel. I recently had it in the shop and the mechanic even commented on them. My buddies with the higher end bikes have Avids, and they seem to complain a lot. It's probably a bit early to start thinking upgrades though since I haven't even ridden it.
