    I heard a rumor about the chipping paint on the 2005 Sunday's. Is Ironhorse re-painting the bikes and if so for free, or what's the deal?

    I've got a well ridden '02 SGS, and besides the areas of chain slap, there is almost no paint missing. This thing has been though some bad crashes too. Paint shouldn't just 'chip off'.

    I got an aussie model which i belive was painted in a different run to the US run, and the paint is pretty crappy, it rubbed off on the first ride where my shorts rubbed on the top tube. Its a good excuse to strip it back and go something custom. Id be doing that at the moment, except i cant get the bloody bolts on the rocker/chainstay interface off.
