    About to pull the trigger on a Trance 4. Couple Q's

    Hi all,

    After searching up and down through craigslist for a bike that fits my budget and what I want to do with it (some Northstar runs, mostly just playing around on trails and some jumps but nothing crazy), and I found my LBS is blowing out the last few Trance 4s they have (under $900 US).

    I'm basically sold on it, and I'm wondering if it would be worthwhile to have them go ahead and put a set of Avid Juicy brakes on it (about $200US installed) and maybe a set of tires, since I've read that the stock tires aren't too hot.

    Thoughts?

    The trigger has been pulled! :happydance:

    The LBS upgraded the brakes to Juicy 5's for a small fee and put upgraded DMR platform pedals on it for me. I'm stoked.

    Sounds like a good deal for you and the dealer (clearing old stock : brakes n pedals).

    Now... take those damn reflectors off and get 'er dirty!

    Ute?!?!?! That's me Chebby pickup

    Next step: Finding some gear. I have a helmet and goggles from the MX days, but I need to get some shin guards and elbow protectors.

    Lol
    We call them Utes in Australia, my husband is longing to buy a Landcruiser Ute again, but it's not always practical with 2 kids! Of course as a second car I can see big advantages in using it for bike transportation So yeah I was taking good not of tie down methods!

    You must agree that "Landcruiser Pickup" doesn't quite have the same ring to it?
