There's hope that there's one out there willing to listen.

Otherwise, I may as well try to convince the dog that he shouldn't chase squirrels.

Who wants to buy some parts and/or a frame/fork so I can buy my buddy's Rivet? I've got some Dura Ace 7700 cranks/bb, a fixie/track/ss specialized crankset/World Class Ti BB with a 42t ring and a 'bash guard' that used to be the matching 52t ring, some XTR (M952) cranks/bb with or without the 110mm adaptor to run cross rings, a Quattro Assi frame/Easton EC90SLX fork/King HS (54.5cm TT), 7703 D/A 'long' cage rear derailleur, etc etc etc. I need to raise $600 by next week.

Have you priced those Schwalbes? I was having a great leafy singletrack ride yesterday when the rear Nobby Nic blew a hole in the sidewall. Had to hike the bike out of the woods due to only having one Co2 cartridge in the Camelback. Lesson learned. No more overpriced, paper thin, Schwalbes for me.
I did set a new (low) record though, with a blistering 3.1 mph avg speed while walking the bike back to the parking lot.

Were the NN's the Snakeskin sidewall model? I just put a set of them on my bike, and ride in some rocky stuff. Wondering how long they will last... I've heard the non snakeskin ones are very prone to sidewall tears.
