    Scammed

    Unforuately I got scammed when trading a guy for a smaller bike, parts were missing and the brake lever clamp was stripped. On pinkbike, never do a deal with devonkalt.

    Also, that leads to my question. Does anyone have a front brake they aren't using I could buy for cheap, or have? I got cleaned out and can't pay much I'm afraid. but if anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks,

    Ken

    Well I feel stupid. I literally just threw away a front disk brake setup. Sorry I couldn't help.

    Alright, he's agreed to trade back after a little talk. Crisis averted. Maybe he saw the post. And thanks anyway, Tysonemb. Its nice to know there are still some good people.

    Edit: He's being very cooperative now, not the jerk I thought at first. If mods could delete, that'd be great.

    I am upgrading XO avid brakes to XT's. The former will go on sale next week. I will put them on ebay but if you need I will give you a good price for them.
