you'll be in much better shape with the '08. I've ridden mine fairly hard for 4 seasons with almost zero noticeable play anywhere on the frame. the only thing that would make me get a new frame is if this one disintegrates underneath me. in my own, biased opinion, its easily one of the best bikes ever made.manamana said:I was thinking pivots. I think I've read that the 0'6-'07 Sunday's had issues with the rear linkage getting sloppy? I have just bought an '08, did this year have the same sort of issues? If so, I was thinking I should get some replacements now while they are still around.
