    bad choice on parts...

    what a bad choice on parts on the Scott. there's much lighter to be had. the road cassette isn't suited for offroad use as well as the road derailleur. no discs? no good. carbon saddle has no comfort. can you say bonehard? 520mm handlebar? not acceptable. KMC chain? what a junk. 2.0" tires? too narrow. ...

    naaah - no good

    Those shaved chain rings on the Scott are all wrong. Way too light! And what happened to the disc hanger on that SID? What were you thinking! You should have asked for Nino`s and Dirt boy`s advise before spending so much $.

    Now let's see Nino in all of his gut busting glory!
    a lighter and better bike, better gearing and faster tires (yes, the ones measuring just 1.8"..) would have resulted in better results

    Whoops...My mistake on Addison.

    Did the 31.8 bars help you? You make stupid comments about Nino's parts, but we see no pics of your ride or parts specs.

    I am sure at 125lbs you need those stiffer bars and stem to help you. Again I am pretty sure at your size, you are not going to feels one bit of differnce what so ever. Sure I am not you and now sure how sensitve you are but..

    I don't care about some MX guy either. Most at your weight won't feel it and i am sure ypu don't. Funny but other reps from companies have also mentioned that 31.8 is marketi g and make things easier to have MTB and Road bikes share the same size. Easier and more money making possibilites. same companies that sponsor boards here.

    Not a currency guru...

    but I follow the euro market closely. Besides "peddleling" some euro parts, I deal with other matters in europe where I deal with finance.

    Just read the al little dude. The american currency is in dire straits....

Not enough to get your panties in a bunch just yet, since you seem to think you are some currency guru since you peddle some European products.
    "....Shimano XTR drivetrain (2X9 with Dura Ace bb), Cannondale Optimo frame (with a Fatty Ultra 80mm fork-awaiting the new Magura cartridge), Magura Marta disc, Crossmax disc wheels, Conti Supersonic tires w/ Stans, Ritchey carbon 31.8 bar, Thomson offset post, Fizik Gobi saddle....


    some parts sound pretty european to me:

    Magura disc
    Magura Cartridge ('cause they know how to get that fork right?)
    Mavic Crossmax
    Conti Tires : you better swap tires as THESE definitely aren't trail worthy. you know, "lack of control"...
    Fizik Saddle

    AND:
    Ritchey carbon OS bar (couldn't laugh more here!! who was it that talked bad about far east carbon?...)

    and i also like Dirt Boys comment about the added stiffness of OS stems and bars and your weight...just a tiny little smile here

    The year is wrong for Addison, I just checked and they do not have the 2004 results listed for whatever reason, but the Bloomer is correct.

    Are you sure you're ready to move up? I assume bloomer sport did 2 laps? (My parents live in MI and thats a fun course). I assume you're doing some training this winter but numbers:

    1:42 for two laps (or 51mins/lap)

    expert does 3 laps so that would be 2:33 for three laps assuming you could keep the same pace. That would put you in last place in expert finishing 15minutes behind the last person.

    Small world!!!

    I finished fifth at Addison - judging by the lap times, you must have been the guy who passed me on the second lap. BTW, the results are there, you just need to look under race#4. Did you race the Iceman this year - best event in Michigan.

    Anyway, do you just antagonize these guys for fun? I wouldn't ride an 18# hardtail myself, but I like to read others people's ideas on bike parts. Just wondering...

    Hey! Nino, why do you say if theres no discs, its no good? You guys do cross country racing, not dh or all mountain, what do you need discs to brake for, with that light of a setup on your bike you shouldn't be doing enuff downhill and all mountain trails so that you even need to brake half the time. V-brakes are way good enuff for the type of ridding he does, xtr v's and avid single digit ti are very good and lightweight v brakes, they do the job for this type of riding and weight allot less.

    I think you should read some a Nino's other posts until you make him out to be a proponent of disc brakes...

    Do you ride for Paint Creek?
    The results are not on the MMBA page anywhere. Addison Oaks uses Gault Race Management to time their races and is not promoted by Tailwind or Fun Promotions.

    Yes - I started riding for Paint Creek Bikes last year. I will be staying in the Sport category one more year to try and win it this year (I was 5th last year). See you at Yankee Springs.
