My mate had one on an Orange he had when i had my Giant granit years ago and i fell in love. I couldn't afford one at the time. Now i'm back on an mtb and solvent i thaught it would be easy to get a 1" one, but not so. I have been looking for mint one for mounths and when this one poped up on ebay on monday i had to have it. I know a lot of people don't rate STX but i love it. On my bike i have STX ltd edition crank front and rear mechs and they look and peform wicked, and if these broke i would buy more no question.
