Frame bearing kit, LX cassette, Sram chain, Manitou Axcel fork w/ RTWD, Cane Creek S2 headset, and as yet undecided riser bar for my GT iDrive.  It will be trail worthy again!!!

I bought my GT iDrive 3.o in 2001.  14 months later the frame cracked and it took over a year to get a replacement frame from Pacific Cycles who bought GT out of bankruptcy.  They replaced it with a 2003 1.0.  That was cool but a headache sealing the deal.  Then a year later the eccentric housing cracked so they replaced the swingarm/eccentric with a 2005.  The bike shop I did the warranty through screwed it up so it had excessive play between the main frame and rear swingarm.  I just recently, after months of disgust, am working with the bike shop I originally bought it from (who is no longer a GT dealer) and they are going to fix it if I can get all the parts that are needed.  I did that today and the parts should be here by next Friday.  Now this was an awesome riding bike and a great climbing/cross country ride.  It's design was said to be one of the best out there from what I am told.  Hopefully in a couple of weeks I will be riding it again.  My other bike, GF Sugar Race, is having thrt fork rebuilt, so luckily I have my GF Mamba hardtail to ride in the meantime.  I have a sweet road bike, Raleigh R700, but I love off roading way better.  Luckily I have a few choices in my stable.  :-)

Yeah, it all adds up.  I ride all of my bikes, so at one point or another I am upgrading, replacing, tweaking, adding to 4 bikes!

I am crossing my fingers for a new frame.  Either a Turner 5 spot or a Ventana El Saltamontes or El Ciclón would be nice  :)

boy I don't know where to start on this one. We have 13 bikes in our garage at this point! I have the wife and four kids also. We are the ones with the ford pick-up and the trailer for six bikes and 3 blockheads for 3 bikes in the truck. Deraileurs would probably be first on the list seeing as how the kids are constantly crashing or falling on the right side (or wrong side ). With four kids (three of them riding clips) at least we can pass the bike shoes along till they wear out. Beleive it or not with 13 bikes we are still short one bike. I have a Specialized Enduro, Hardrock, Lemond Buenos Aries road bike and a Elecktra Rat Fink( love that bike, cushy). My wife and 13 yr. old son are sharing a Specialized Rockhopper Pro,12 yr. old daughter has a Womens Hardrock, 10 yr. old has a Hotrock 26", and the 7 yr old has 3 bikes, a 18' single speed, a 20" inch 7 speed suspension, and a 20" GT 12 lb. BMX racing bike which she took the Cyclocross series (6-8 yr. old class) with. Actually lapped the field twice in the last two races. Oh and I almost for got for giggles the tandem and the trailer bike. Put them together and it's like a three kid semi rolling down the road. Thinking about giving my oldest my Enduro and maybe a new Enduro or Stumpjumper for me. Heck I'd settle for more riding time and a years supply of GT 85 and chain lube. If need be I'll cook Santa whatever he wants,Steak,Chicken,Ribs, Drinks, and even cookies. Egg Nog is optional.

If you don't crash occassionaly, you're not riding hard enough!!

Bob,
how come only a 80mm fork?  100mm would be a little better for what we ride, right?  just wondering . . .

Well just found out Santa an't comin till after the first of the year. But atlest then I can get what I want for not just one bike but two. For some reason my girlfriend knows Santa real well and thats the way the cookie crumbles. So For those of you only upgrading one bike, try two. I can say this, she took good header on Gator Back this weekend only after a couple of miles, and still finished the ride.  So I guess she can get the Mavic SLR's too......... ;D ;D
