    New Bronco Release

    Full disclosure: those two vehicles were a Japan-made Mazda (with FoMoCo stamped on every part) and a 1999 Escort wagon, manual shift, that I bought brand new for under $9K. Purchase price factors into the dollar for dollar calculus.

    New Bronco Release

    Probably not a buyer either, but the 2 best cars (dollar for dollar) I've ever owned were Fords (well one was a Ford-Mazda co-op). That includes every Land Cruiser and Toyota product I've owned.

    Linus’ - “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should” -MTB build

    Nice work! So are you going with a reverse mullet: 29 up front and 27.5 in back? Why did you want to run that particular frame shock? Nice skills fabbing your own link. Did you make it to receive the regular 7902/6902 bearings the stock Nomad linkage uses or go with something more exotic (but...

    1980s Specialized Stump Jumper Expert Needed

    Not a Specialized expert, but shimano m730 group is 1986-1993. So assuming that XT grp is original, then 1986 would be the oldest it could possibly be.

    old mountain bike thread

    lol you win. My landcruiser gets fewer miles than that in a year. You'd smoke me in elevation gain too -- Nova Scrota doesn't have much of that. And by the way @bugsnbikes , go ride Skeggs and post up lots of pics -- banana slugs and all -- for those of us who can't

    Enduro Bearings and Yeti ...

    @tnkayaker -- I don't think you have a choice. Your SB6 uses this bearing size that as far as I can tell is proprietary Enduro: F6902-2RS-MAX 28X15X7_2.5 OUT The bearing has two other problems besides bad seals: 1) there's more play between balls and race than in standard bearings, 2) the...

    FJ62 - 247k miles

    Things are going to wear out at 250K and 30 years old. But you know that. Even Land Cruisers weren't really made to be daily drivers at that age/mileage. Can you do your own mechanical work?
