    I have noticed on most of the stock bikes the derailer is pulled up and forward and on my Norco it is in a standard position. I assume it is for better clearance. how do they do this? do you take a shit load of links out and is there a limit to the amount or any guide to doinging this?. my derailer is a shimano Sora should I look for another after it wears out or think about replaceing it sooner? Im putting a longer stem on and the stock bars are Amoeba's, is this a good bar? Im a begginer and would a different bar make much of a difference at this point? I have looked at the Koxx and other frames and see the difference between them and my norco, is there any major difference besides weight do to less material? I have hered many say some popular bikes don't hold up to long.
    Thanks for listining.

    Heya dood, u'll find that people do taht to there mech to try and eliminate all that banging around the mech does. if u try and take out as many links as possible then either put sumthing between the mech and frame or zip tie to the frame (provid u don't use ure gears)
    and about the bars i would go for some azonic or easton bars. thou if u like the bars stick with it.

    hope that helps
