  1. Those certificates can easily end up in a trash can when someone unethical decides to get a few more dollars by claiming his stem is OG. This is a point that repoppers NEVER accept. Even Re-issues by original makers that aren't properly marked or changed in a way that is not changeable. Like Brian said, I don't think for a minute that you or Linn would try to mislead someone. It's after that fact that it becomes an issue. And it will 100%.
  2. I'm with Brian and Jake on this one. These aren't old stems. They are new product. He may have no intentions whatsoever of misleading anyone, but that doesn't mean whoever buys them shares that sentiment. It has happened time and time again. One of those stems will end up on a bike, and that bike will be sold, and then sold again, and the fact is is not OG will not be disclosed. As far as I am concerned, these stems will be suspect from this point forward.
  3. There are options out there. You can get a longer reach stem, that will make the bike feel more roomy. Bigger bars too. Not all frames are created equal. Some feel roomier based on their geometry. When you are at the track, Ask others with different XXL's to sit on them. You will find some feel more roomy. Welcome back! Doug
  4. Wow. It was 2008. I feel old now. Anyways, the one I had was an 84 XL.
  5. I'm thinking it's going to be an 86. I had an 85 long top tube that I sold to Contender years ago and I believe the serial started with 85. Same location. Doug
  6. This thing is amazing. All I did was air up the tires. Brakes are perfect, gears all work smooth, hubs spin beautifully, headset and BB are smooth. Goodyear tires aren’t even cracking.
  7. Yup. About the only thing I might change is the seat. Duct tape isn't my style lol Doug
  8. That’s sweet. I have a black and gold Laguna.
  9. This thing is so nice. I honestly wasn’t expecting much. I saw it in a garage sale ad yesterday. I really tried to unsee it, figuring it would be gone quick. I thought it was a laguna, but all I could see was the rear triangle. This morning I figured what the hell and messaged the poster to see if he still had it. Yup. Well damn. Had to drive up to the lake to get it but it was a pleasant surprise. Scorpion bars Araya steel rims Goodyear tires Normandy hubs tourney brakes all I had to add was a seatpost. They wrecked the original removing it.
  10. That's awesome Steve. I go up to Ashland occasionally, just because it's a cool town and only a 5 hour drive. Have to catch up next time. Doug
  11. I have a first batch 22" Holmes. Much more comfortable than a 20".
  12. Looks like Tabletop BMX for sale group. Jason Kraig still own that?
  13. Dude joins the museum 5 months ago and he's scoring "NOS" stuff from Sal? I wonder who it really is. Dude isn't new to the hobby.
