    sorry, they are cheap plastic rubbish and the bad boy deserves something far better. get some sks instead.

    All the SKS I've seen are massive and look shocking. I liked the idea of the roadracer's because you can hardly see them on the bike.

    Anyone know if they'd fit though?

    Any reason for this?

    i work in a bike shop and at the end of the day it is your choice of what you buy. i just think they are a little too plastic for my liking. the sks will last longer. if you like the cruds go for it

    LOL. No! read my quote! Was asking your opinion on why the 2009 is better than the 2010!

    Spoke to Crud; roadracers won't fit on the 700 bad boy because of the disk brakes apparently.

    to be honest, the gearing is better on the '10 model (2x9), brakes are poorer on '10 (prefer avids), SRAM gear is better on '09 (IMHO), quite like the '10 frame but the 2009 is cheaper and available now.
    Tuff one...

    Can anyone tell me what are the symptoms of a leaking cartridge? Is there anything visible that would suggest this as a problem?

    Regards

    Love the fatty solo! Any more pics?

    I'm strongly considering a 2010 bad boy solo early next year.

    There is a post from him on roadbikereview with pictures. These are the US 2010 bad boy models from a sales meeting of his.

    So, my LBS offered me a 2009 BBU for 975 instead of waiting until after Christmas for the 2010 700 I had ordered. Wasn't sure at first, but decided that it was too good an offer to turn down. So today I picked up my shiney new 2009 BBU. Only had a quick spin on it but seems impressive. Will sort it out and get some pics over the weekend.

    Sweet Badboy! You chose well IMO.

    I hear you about the weather, I just picked a 2010 solo and haven't gotten around to taking pics yet because I'm too busy trying to get all the ridding in I can before the weather turns brutal here. I make sure to post pics here eventually.

    Congrats on the new ride!

    +1 nice BBU. Also got one this year from LBS on sale. Love it so much I went ahead and picked up a pair of mtn bike wheels and tires so I can ride her in rougher roads and weather. Ride on.
