Bottomless CL Day!
Sick deals back to back all day long.
You understand I'm saying I want another Superlight, right? It'd be hard for me to even consider another frame. I spend more time considering which COLOR Superlight I want next than considering the possibility of a different model. I was sold on that bike pretty much from Day One.
It's old in terms of Al fatigue-life, and suffering nasty stress fractures in the rear triangle struts near the pivot- in exactly the locations the design has been revamped, and fortified a number of times since I purchased my beloved steed, many years ago. Obsolete it is not, by any means, nor likewise inadequate in any way. Like I said, I'll more than likely replace the 8 year-old frame with another. You'd be hard pressed to convince me there is a finer performing frame for my needs anywhere, and for the money, particularly. That's not just enduring affection, that's enduring design.
It's gettin' to be time to retire my SC Superlight, and I'd have to be convinced not to build-up another!
Whenever I think about getting a bike to replace the Superlight, I end up thinking my efforts would be better spent improving my strength, endurance, and riding skills. I just don't think the ol' SL is holding me back.
I need to get some of those pedals, I am sure if I bought those shoes I would get the pedals
That's a good deal on those tires...
Too bad I'm an XC rider. Conti's rock.
I'd be all over this if my noggin' wasn't so big. lol
Whoever ordered all of these SixSixOne Pro Bravo Carbon helmets for BC must be taking a lot of heat these days. Not complaining, just think it's funny.
I've got one that I loved. Great bike it was my first real dualie after being a hardtail hold out for years. That was an Al version with a little over three inches of travel. Nice and fast.
Titus had a demo day at the trail next to my house and the Racer X I took for a ride was excellent. I'm not sure how well a carbon MTB frame would hold up but it was a blast to ride for sure.
I had the Salmonella for lunch. I feel fine.
It's gettin' to be time to retire my SC Superlight, and I'd have to be convinced not to build-up another! So many years, so much joy- I could hardly've been happier :) Blur'd be where I'd go, if I was so inclined, 'cept the Superlight's semi-active single pivot's been all but worry-free, and I'll trade second-to-the-bottom for first-on-top. For fast and technical Northeast trailriding (up, down, repeat) simplicity is a virtue, and lightweight is crux, IMO. I'm not personally gonna huck anything over my head, anyway. My brother has a Heckler and that's also sweet.
You probably have salmonella then and should probably go to the hospital.
i had a BLT for lunch and it was bomba
What makes the sugar shorts indoor-specific?
Agreed Oni, though the new BLT isn't getting as favorable reviews as I thought it would over on mtbr (never ridden one but had a friend seriously considering one), read a few reviews where people don't really seem to think it's much better than the original BLT. For the money I think there are better, more proven options out there.
I'd try the new Blur LT before the Nomad. Don't like the hunchback look of the Nomad. But that's just me.
Is it just me, or is CL no longer displaying the sell rate and estimated time left below the quantity for sale in the lower right? Shame, I liked that.
What bigSAC said, hold the doors.
called the 800 number and they are going to send the correct shoes out and pay for shipping back. if all works out a very happy CL shopper and great customer service.
