    so i cracked the thing today. Have a GT team Trials i thought it would be a good first bike but i guess it was too thin or not for the beginner. Well what should i do now anyone got a frame or should i sell everything to get a echo or somthing. what would you guys do. Ian

    if you get an echo make sure you have some threadlock for the nipples, thats is all i will say

    Yeah, Echo wheel builds really suck ass. I kept on braking spokes on my mod wheel build. The first upgrade you should do to any echo mod is a wheel rebuild with new spokes.

    Depends on what parts you have... I would just get a new frame if you have decent parts. Tell us what parts you have!

    That reminds me, While I was waiting to get a pure I didn't have anything to ride because my monty's brake lever was broken so I rode my crappy XC bike with a hs22 on the rear. Anyways, I broke the chainstay on it. The right chainstay close to the dropout, clean cut broken. lol!

    That sucks...I broke two frames in the past but it was manufacturer defect.

    I got some late probaly hs 11s with no booster and a diverter thing in the back. The brake has sliped everytime no matter what i do and everything is just not that good.

    ian youve just got really old hs33's. and black pads. so its gonna be crap no matter what. but i can set you up with a front one that you can convert to rear but it will take some $$'s. once my monty is welded i can probably sell you that too...hell pretty much everything i have i can sell you once i get/while im in the process of building my new bike.

    Well i decided to get the frame welded cause my dad knows a relly good welder. But i guess i wont do anything big on it so it wont break again. You should see where it broke its crazy. i should have got that monty for 525. o well
