It wouldn't be steep if they put it on for him/ tuned up the drivetrain. My LBS charges around that price for swapping out drivetrains but what they do is a drivetrain tune up, new cables/housing/readjustment and fine tuning of the actual shifting. If you don't know how to adjust your shifting then you'll want to learn at some point because you'll need to make adjustments every couple of rides or so.FeltDH said:nice find, lots better than some of the bikes I've restored
$65 sounds kinda steep for just cables and housings, but it depends where you are, it's not a rip off, just not a good deal.
Thanks. I'll keep the note about the dropouts in mind when I go to piece her back together.b-kul said:wow, that fork came out really nice! just fwi you might need to sand inside the dropouts down a bit to get the qr in there. maybe not though, try it, if you didn't know i could see that becoming a major pia. also those pieces look like pieces of a shock bushing reducer to me but im not really sure.
I have another question, and I feel dumb asking this. Apparently I missed taking out some spacer/washer things when I brought the frame in for painting. The powder coating guys took it out for me, but I don't know where it goes now. I'm attaching a picture of the washers. Anyone know where they go? Thanks guys.
I believe that they go on the inside of the swingarm as sort of a bearing surface. You could ask this question on the Gary Fisher forum, there are a lot of Sugar owners out there who can help.hunterc4 said:Blksocks--I think you are right in that they go where the swing arms are. There are only two, and that's the only place they fit. Attached is a picture pointing to where I think they go, but I need to know if they go on the insides or outsides of the swing arms.
