Re: Which rearsets???

I have the vortex rear sets and they do adjust quite a bit. And when your wear out the pegs you can buy new ones for $20. But if youre going for look I would do gilles, those things are sexy.

We sell a TON of Vortex. Great Quality, fit, finish, and MADE IN THE U.S.A.

So, replacement parts are easy to get, if you need to.

Re: Which rearsets???

If anyone is thinking about buying the bohemian racing rearsets I can tell you first hand that replacement parts are around the same as the vortex, and they are easy to get. Forum member daredevil had me just e-mail dennis at bohemian and I had replacement parts that week.

Re: Which rearsets???

Longbrake, those rearsets look awesome. Do they come in other colors besides gold though? I'm looking for black, or possibly same color as stock.

Just go to there website, and send them an e-mail with what you are looking for and they will get back with you. I think that they do red, blue, black, and gold.

I would stick to the brand name stuff. As some of the cheaper no name brands might use lower quality materials which might break under normal usage.

Stick with these brands:
Sato
Gilles
Vortex
wood craft

Blue because it is faster.
