I am looking for feedback on the Atomlab General Issue parts... experience good or bad? thoughts about any of the components or Atomlab... I know when I snapped my planetX dh bars and toasted the Goliath stem, I looked around for cromoly bars with a standard mtb geo, but really couldn't find any - the general issue line seems to be hardcore, burly for a reasonable price - I will be doing some product reviews later this summer, but was hoping to get feeback now !

I like the concept of simple, burly components at a reasonable price and I like cromoly since I have had a couple bad experiences with catastrophic Al failures... I am going to try to get a few Atomlab GI product reviews going this summer... I do love my TrailKing pedals... if you know of anyone who has actually used GI components or get a chance yourself - please post some thoughts on performance... I tried to get a listing of shops that carried Atomlab GI components for the revFRmagazine article, but was unsuccessful -hard to find... ride hard

I love my atomlab wheel. Never gone out of true yet. Their parts seem burly and super strong without being SUPERDUPER heavy, and at a very reasonable price. Feelings in the biking community seem to be mixed, just like with any product. Some people have extremely good luck with them while others loath them.

g.i. stuff

I have been using a g.i. bar stem combo on my park bike for a couple of months now. I have slammed the bike down pretty hard quite a few times and haven't seen any ill effects. The stuff looks pretty sweet in the flesh with no real crazy looking graphics, just the millitary style lettering and what not. Priced pretty cheap to boot! You should be able to order the stuff.

Coupl'a my ridin' buds are sportin' the "GI" bolt-on rear hub & they love it. I was able to get a 36 hole EX729 rim to build up a 36 hole "GI" bolt-on hub. Buildin' it next week. My buds love this hub....so far, no complaints. They ride hard & go big & the hubs are holdin' their own. Can't wait to slap this wheel on my Bullit. Already had a guy try to buy the hub off of me cause the LBS can't get any more for a while. I turned the guy down. Boltin'on next week. :D :D :cool: ;)
