    I picked one up from this deal, can the decals be removed? Does anyone know? I hope the Covert is awesome.
    Your big wheels are so awesome!

    I don't think so. The decals are under the clearcoat. If I recall correctly, only the TranAM and TOP have decals over the clearcoat and can be peeled.

    These are the 1st generation frames with 135 X 10 dropouts. I am tempted, but what do people think of these vs. the newer 142 X12 version. Is it really a noticable improvement, or just hype and a new standard for us to adjust to?

    I think w/ a 135x10, it really depends upon the interface & skewer. I run a converted Hope Pro2 w/ bolts on the rear of my '10 Covert, and while I've not ridden the newer model, my bike is plenty stiff compared to everything else I've ridden. But those box-section stays can only do so much if you're running a QR, even a good one like an XT.

    We rejoice in our suffering, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character.

    Well I am actually running a Hadley 10mm thru-bolt now on Hope hubs on my TransAM, and would probably do the same on my new Bandit. With this setup is there any meaningful difference from a 142X12mm? My guess is it would be nothing that I would notice. Actually I'm more concerned about missing out on the new rear end "standard" since I intend to keep this frame for several years.
