.. But my post count's too low. Pic in my profile:
looks like you're seriously tall there )
have fun with the HJ!
I seriously regret not picking up a Stifee XC while I lived just across the border, this will be rectified!
Got a chance to buy an '03 G-Spot. Has Sram x-9 rear and x-7 front, Race Face cranks, Fox RL rear shock and a Manitou Sherman front. Bike looks and seems to be in excellent shape, and has been recently fully overhauled and tuned.
I realize this bike is 10 yrs old, but doe this seem like a good deal for $650?
Thanks for any insight you may have!
sounds like a good deal. With a modern shock, some new rubber and some HTA slackening (the challenging part where eccentric shock mounts and a Saar-like headset may be involved) you'll be set.
The frame looks like this I guess?
Well, I pulled the trigger and bought it. The seller was Anex Bicycles in Salt Lake City. Tyler (the owner) was super easy to deal with and eager to please. Deal was done within 24 hours and the bike was picked up by FedEx and on its way to me today. This is my first FS bike so I can't wait to get it out! Here's a pic from this AM before he packed it up.

It's three years since I last posted a picture of my bike in this thread and a lot of parts have been switched out to save weight.
Weighs 31lb 10oz in this picture and rides better than ever!

While browsing the web I found these pictures of a roadbike called Cove Quickee. I tried but could not find any other pics regarding of this model. Is it fake or is it a prototype of a frame which never got into production at Cove Bikes?
they do exist.
its mine, there is a small write up on the previous page.
there were roughly 50 built(according to an old cove staff member) in 2002.
it was made in Vancouver, but most went to Europe for some reason. as far as i can find i have the only one on the internet.
here is the 2002 brochure scan
here is the bike now
ah, I was after keywords "cove road bikes" as your first pics were in my mind but I forgot where I saw them and your short write-up. shame on me not reading through this thread carefully enough... thank you for the information on this model! nice looking bike and great to know it is in safe hands! :)
Tyler at Anex sold me an El Cuervo with a cracked frame I discovered the crack when I cleaned the bike hours after I bought it. He will not return calls or messages.
Hi guys some nice bikes in here. I'm rebuilding a 2009 Hustler and having some issues with the main pivot. Do the two bearings on each side need to be pressed into the frame a bit rather than flush, so they hold the middle piece in place? Also mine had two thin plastic/rubber washers either side between the main pivot and the chainstay clamps, where can I get some more of these? Thanks. Will post some pics when the frame is finished.
