    Just got my flightline Comp 2 days ago.

    I love it!



    I'm taking it in to the LBS to get the chain taken in a little (came off 4 times in one hour) and have gears adjusted but aside from that it rode great the first day.

    Robb, that front brake cable looks like it could get annoying with all that looseness in it. Is that how it's supposed to be routed?

    Oh and one other thing- I've never had a bike with disk brakes, but looking at the three bikes so equiped, it looks like the rotors on the Comp would eat pads pretty fast from the large holes. Is this the case?

    It looks like the lever needs to be taken off or the handle bars and the cable allowed to "unwind" like you have to do to a phone cord now and again. The length should be ok but the route looks off. It should bow to the front no the back.

    The large holes are actually for cooling and allow for debris to exit the pads. It will not cause pads to wear any faster, but will allow your brakes to cool down faster after a long decent or perform better in muddy conditions. Brake pad life will vary on your riding style / conditions but is not uncommon to have brake pads that last 18months or longer.

    I got an early Father's Day gift today. My Flightline Comp arrived! Not expecting it as my order said it was waiting for delivery by 12/09/2007.

    I have noticed though that the Australian version of the Flightline Comp is different to the US.

    Well, first is the color. I chose blue, but the choices were either black or blue. Have to admit the Blue looks great. Then I noticed that the shocks were different. Anyway, below I have listed the parts of the bike and I would like comments on whether these parts are worse, same or better than the US spec. I want honest opinions ok. I'll post up some pics once i learn how too. lol

    Fork: SR Suntour XCR (MG) Magnesium. 110mm (Well I measured the Shock with a ruler! lol)
    Brakes: Tektro Auriga Comp Disc brakes. (Not sure if mechanical or not. It says 'Mineral Oil' on the brake levers)
    Shifter: Shimano Alivio. (I think it is an 8 speed. It says 1 to 3 on the left and 8 to 1 on the right?)
    RD: Shimano Deore
    FD: C050 Shimano SIS (Not sure if I have this correct, but it does say Shimano)
    Cassette: Shimano CS-HG30-81
    Zac 26" double wall rims.
    Not sure of the tires. Everything else is the same. I'll take some close up Shots and post them to show you guys what It's got.
    It seems pretty heavy, anybody know the weight on these things?

    I was pretty disappointed when I noticed the differences as I chose the bike based on the US specs. There is no info on these bikes on the net apart from this forum and I haven't seen them at any Bike stores. I purchased this Bike from Pacific Brands who own the Haro license in Australia. They distribute the bikes out to all the LBSs here Down Under.
    However, I rode the Bike and am very pleased. Changing gears is noisy and tricky for me, first time, So I'll keep an open mind and let the experts tell me if I bought a lemon. (Spec wise that is). The bike on a whole is great.

    Thanks in advance.

    The only thing that really jumped out at me is the Suntour fork, i have no idea how good that would be compared to the Dart2 that is speced on the US version. I dont think anything else would be that bad...just up grade is things break,
