    Ebayed a Force 3.0 tonight!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=160317136582

    So I just bought this on ebay. Did I do good?

    I am new to full suspension but based on what I've seen here this bike seems like a good choice, at a really good price. As long as ther eis nothing more than scratches as the ad claims.

    I wonder if that's from Single Tracks in Fruita.
    I used to work for the "other" GT dealer in GJ.

    Sweet can't wait till I get it, I've only been riding for about 6months so far. Singletrack at Sac River here in Missouri with a Trek 4500 hardtail, I really don't like the feeling of barreling down a hill without rear suspension, so I decided it was time to try to smooth out my rides with this!

    Should be getting it next week sometime.

    Got it in today! Built it up the best I could, but I'm gonna have to rebuild the front hub, it grinds a bit when I spin it with my fingers. And I have to buy a tool to tighten the crank, but then I will take it for a spin and see what I think! I'm excited.

    Also, I had no idea modern cranks are hollow and have a hole going all the way through them, I kept looking everywhere for another part to put in there...

    Obvious you have been away from cycling for a few years or hibernating and just woke up. Understand it's been a long winter.... as Hollowtech 2 an similar cranks have been around now for 3-4 years.
    Needed: 26.8mm XTR seatpost, blue GT/Grundig Jersey.
