Have two questions here...first of all, i found a great deal on a K2 Flyin' Monkey frame, and I'm thinking of getting that and selling my Azonic DS1...need a bike thats a little more XC friendly, the DS1's geometry is all wrong for XC. anyone out there riding on a Flyin Monkey? theres a bunch of reviews on here about the whole bike, but i'm more concerned with just the frame.
Also, how do you know when its time for a new crank? I'm riding a prob 97' LX crank (still fits Girvin rock rings if that shows how old it is), its not bent, but I really dont know enough about chain rings to know when its time to replace them. Should i just drop the $ for a new crank too?
Thanks for any info!
