hey, I m tinkin about gettin a bike for messing around, pulling out tricks and some freeride tours.
Would a Stuff or Cowan be good for me? Are they good to be taken on some tours, especially some freeride tours or maybe some bikepark fun?
Is it the same frame, they both use?
Is there a shiftable chain guide, that you would recommend for the stuff?

The 07 Cowan and Stuff had the same frame so picking which frame is down to your budget.

e.13 makes a nice shiftable guide that would bolt up to either bike.

Hey,
I finally bought a 07 Stuff. I like the Handling and the Geometry of the bike. Had a lot of fun.
But after a few rides I noticed some strange sound from my fork. Back at home I noticed that all the four screws at the bridge were loose & I even lost one. I guess that's something to blame the bike shop for.
Now, after about 4 weeks, one of my pedals starts to become loose & gets noisy. I would really prefer to spend 20 or 30$ more on a bike and get solid pedals with it, instead of having to replace the first parts after a few weeks. I've only been riding trails so far, since it is pretty flat here. No downhills or big drops - so that's something that shouldn't happen..

Marzocchi says you should check those bolts every ride.

As for the pedals, they should last a lot longer than that under normal use, ask the bike shop to call us on the land line.
