For the extra $100 you get top loading Elixirs and a upgrade in the rear shock, it was a great deal before and it looks like a much better bike now, the worst thing about the deal is the wait for the UPS man. Happy Trails to you.
Great! Thanks for the reply, having to wait for it to get delivered sux. How soon before it ships? Will it ship out next Monday if ordered yesterday?
I know I will not be disapointed, "good things come to those who wait." ...but waiting still sux.
You should get a UPS Quantum e-mail it will tell you your package has shipped, and you can save it to Track the shipping daily, it will also give you a projected delivery date, my last bike delivered in 7 days, I have a Fantom Team coming now, it should be here Wensday the 4th, assembly was easy, set up was a learning process for me, I did all my own work, Youtube has alot of info if you need help, or take it to a LBS, you will need a shock pump and basic tools, Good Luck :thumbsup:
Bikers Direct has shock pumps for under $30.00, but a LBS would be around $35.00, sounds like you're going to set up your own bike, thats a good way to go, then if you need to work on it, you'll be ready, beats walking the bike out of the trail, or damaging the bike, by riding a broken bike.
If you buy your pump from Bikers Direct, you may want to order a derailaur hanger to, it's a good thing to have with you incase you break yours, or bend it, they are made to break off and save your derailer from damage, I ordered one, and it only took a few days to get here, they priority mailed it, it should beat your bike there if you order today.
