- Jul 4, 2008That would be great Bruce because as it stands right now I can't afford
the Big Dummy setup. And this will not be the last increase in price.
My MTB still has a lot of life in it so I won't change until I really
need to. But I had started to save. Right now the BD is more than my
motorcycle cost me.
On a different note since it's a crummy day out I took the bike out and
washed it down, took the freeloaders apart to wash and dry and I was
really shocked at the amount of rust I'm seeing. I've had the X on since
September and yes I've ridden in all weathers but still I obviously
didn't prepare enough. I have some work to do.
All new X owners beware that you really need to get anti rust lube down
in those tubes. Do it first thing and stay on it. I thought I was
prepared - guess not.
