    www.covebike.com, ask if they ship to US
    they are great high end quality, its one of the top choices of North Shore stuff here.

    Calling them will be the quickest. I've had severl conversations w/ those guys and I get the impression that they're too stoned most of the time to type. I have a Handjob and love the thing for a HT XC bike.

    The guy I bought the Handjob from took that sticker off. Kinda bummed me out. I'm thinking of having that bike repainted as the paint was partially removed when I was cleaning the frame w/ some carb cleaner. When I do, that sticker is going back on, in big bold letters :D

    phone the shop and get great service. Those guys are so rad. Chaz and co. are the real deal. You really need to do a road trip to Deep Cove as it is a one of a kind experience.

    Call them, it's faster.

    I've owned a 02 Gspot for a few years, then I sold the frame to Ciaran on here. I wish I hadn't. I ride on an 05 bullit now, but I still want another Gspot to mess around on.

    Cove bikes are great and I will talk good things about them till I die.

    The man speaks the truth. The G-spot is an absolutely great bike. She can handle pretty much anything and is a blast to ride. Get one, you won't regret it!

    Sometimes (and I haven't the slightest clue why) your name will get on a SPAM list and your emails will never reach them.

    Sounds like a big problem they need to fix.

    even better....buy a cheap ticket or drive to Deep Cove. It is worth any amount of money. You will see and experience what you came looking for in the hills there. If you are cool Chaz will ride with you....that's if he's not in Mexico. The bike shop is so quaint and sweet. I think it a must for any serious freerider. Even if you just buy a few stickers and a water bottle with the infamous skull on it you will enjoy the entire outing. Just make sure you stop in at Whistler on the way back and hit up A-Line with that new ride you will end up buying.

    I meant in general, I don't know if that's what's really happening. But yeah, any respectable company should read and reply to emails.

    I emailed them a few more times and finally got some questions asked. I was looking at the shocker. Too bad it wont take dual rings.
