Long story short, I had my 5 spot taken off my jeep in traffic yesterday and need to replace it. It was an 06, first year TNT, large. Pike 454 u turn air, SRAM 9.0 shifters/RD, XT cranks, 819 wheels w/ Hadley hubs and the DHX air 5.0. My thought is to just order another the same, but I'm not sure what has changed since then or what I should change in my set up. I'm even toying with a RFX instead, but have no experience or knowledge there. Any help to get a bummed rider back on the trail will be appreciated.

Yes, taken in traffic. Apparently it is a new method. I ride a lot of single track at China Camp, Truckee, and Downieville 2-3 times per summer. Not much fire road stuff, other than Pine Mountain once in a while.

I'll give you a sweet deal on my 2007 Intense 5.5 frame (so I can buy a new 5 spot!). It has hardly been ridden yet the bearings still managed to seize on me. Go for a new spot.
