Hey all,

I just got a sweet deal on a year-old bike (but new frame) and I'm wondering about a few things.



Here's the config:

07 Fuel EX 9.5
07 Reba Team fork
XTR drivetrain/brakes
Bontrager X Lite wheels, XXXL stem/bar/seatpost/saddle

The bike feels great but it's my first time riding carbon. I noticed after the first ride that the cable wear was pretty bad and I'm considering wrapping the trouble spots with bar tape or something similar to protect the frame. Also the seatpost slipped during the ride and I readjusted, but I was afraid of overtightening.

Anything I should look out for with this frame? Any suggestions on how to maintain the bike? bearings etc?

thanks,

tom
