Traded my 2010 888 EVO TI for a 2011 BOXXER R2C2 with the AVALANCHE CART straght across.

How is the Boxxer better? I would choose the 888 anyday.

Honestly I was bored and wanted to try the Avy cart saw the ad and went for it. Better is to be determined. NOTHING WRONG with wanting to try different things. Anyway I only paid $975 for the 888 new. Also you may have a different opinion and that is great.

Yeah, sorry if I sounded like a complete zocchi fan. But I've had a go on both a 2011 888 RC3 EVO Ti and a Boxxer 2010 with Elka cartridge, the 888 were superior. But I agree on that it always is fun to try new things. Razz

The best deal I've ever had was a Dainese X-Splash helmet for 100EUR (instead of 285EUR). Yes, it's heavy, but maybe I have a wierd head but only this one fits me perfectly. So I'm happy!

maybe he got them for $175 AND got the sincere happiness and respect from buying it from an actual bicycle retailer. You know, like the kids used to do, when they actually knew people in the biz, and got hooked up for being a good customer/friend. That kinda shit.
