is the word on the street. Should be able to find more info with a search. I have a Magic which I will probaly convert to a Fluid but may just get the new Reba. Less maintenence and good performance if it's anything like my old Pike Air.1971tch said:I just checked the price of the wb fluid on their website. $870. Does anyone know when the reba thru-axle will come out. I think I've definately decided on the el capitian but this is going to go way over my agreed on budget. I'll probaly go ahead and order the frame soon it might just take a little longer to finish the build
One thing i have noticed with my el rey is that going from a reba with a 38mm offset to a WB with a 44mm offset made the bike handle so much better. That new reba should be something.TIGMAN said:Here's an old picture of my 06 Capitan............I'm planning on doing a few changes to it this summer if I keep it ! For one the old Reba will be replaced with the new coming Reba w adjustable travel and 20 mm TA ( maxle light ) and upgrading the wheels of course bcuz for one reason the front wheel will need a 20mm TA hub ! I'm quite happy with the 4" rockers to be honest but never tried it w 5" rockers or feel the need to ! TIG.
Check with Larry at moutnain high cyclery - I live in Richmond ,VA and he is my local bike shop all the way out in Ft. Collins, CO1971tch said:OK guys, I have to do this, I've been saving for the perect bike for about 2 years. The first time I saw the perfect bike was a few days ago. I've been riding since 1989 when I was in the Army and I bought a Used Nischki for 400 dollars. Within 2 months of that purchase I also bought a 1972 Karmann Ghia for 600 bucks. Volkswagon for those of you who don't know. I will get a ventana el capitan as son as my situation permits. It's my dream bike. Ya'll seem to have more money than GOD. I've talked to my girlfriend and the final budget is 3500. 1000 more than the original I worked at a bike shop for a couple of years, I know about the discounts. I dont know why I'm even writing this, I'm 6 months away frow my dream bike. Please consider cost into suggestions. I dont own Texas or even part of Oklahoma.
