    OK heres the deal, i have 750 dollers, i have a stab frame and a super t fork. This is my question........how do i spend that money wisely.

    please tell me what letter i should choose..

    A. TI spring, 823/hadley wheel set

    B. used saint derraler, cranks, and the wheel set

    C. saint stuff, ti spring(have a little extra money)

    D. price matched a 888rc2x for 780! (is my super t ok?)



    IM so bored of thinking of what to do with this....IM LOOSING SLEEP OVER THIS SH#T!!!!

    Thanks, Oliver.

    Um, maybe it's me but this is just bizarre. Do you have the other parts you need to make a working bike?

    I would never buy a used rear derailleur.

    And how are we supposed to know if your Super T is ok?

    I would X-out the ti spring. If you wanted the lightest bike possible, a Stab is a mistake. I would spend the $200+ for ti on new derailleur/shifters...

    Like OGRipper said, do you have other parts? Are these replacements/upgrades? We can't give decent advise if we don't know what your replacing.

    And IMO, if you've already got a complete bike, your money would be best spent upgrading the frame.

    no i just bought the frame, the reason i was asking if the fork was ok i meant a 7 inch fork on a 8 inch travel bike.....

    That's a good idea unless you bought a used derailleur.
