    Guardians are going, going, soon to be gone!

    FYI

    We just ran out of 20" Guardians, and are down to the single-digits in stock levels for the 16/18/22.

    We have another production run due in July with stock in the warehouse in late July.

    We apologize for this; its the same story as the Goblin where we thought we made enough to last all summer and ran out early due to way higher demand than anticipated.

    Thanks,

    SO glad my Guardian was shipped (will have tomorrow). Very happy for Airborne, too. Love to see the "little guy" doing well. Love it.

    Sounds like a good problem to have. I just received my new guardian this past week. I ordered pedals and they will be here today so hopefully I can ride it this weekend.

    Is there anything that needs to be done to my new bike before I ride it? I have it all put together except for pedals. Not sure if anything needs to be done that I dont know about before riding it.

    Thanks!

    Just ensure that you did a good job tightening the stem bolts when you installed the handlebars, and ensure the skewers are good and tight.

    When you install the pedals, use a little grease on the threads and make certain that they are good and tight. One of the most common newbie mistakes when working on a new bike is not ensuring the pedals are tight and bunging up the crank threads riding a loose pedal.

    Thanks again and hope you enjoy the bike!!!

    Got it all together and went over everything to ensure everything was tight. calipers were loose but i think I know why. When you tighten them up it chips the paint off the frame :-(. Oh well such is life lol.

    Anyways took it for a few mile ride and it rides really well. Rolls better then i expected. This is the 1st time I have ridden a 29er and any bike really in the last 8 years. Needs a little adjustment on the rear derailleur but worked ok. Gotta figure out how to do that now.

    Thanks for a quality bike at a great price. I think you have a customer for life.

    ^Park Tool has tons of tutorials. Check them out. I had to search for info on adjusting hydro brakes.

    Brakes are fine. I don't know how to adjust the derailleur yet

    Hi Jeremy,

    Thanks KrazyKreitzer,
