I am a software developer, and I assumed the data migration was the hangup. (That's why I sent that link. ;)) Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

Your thoughts on this option?

One of our fellow XSives offered to sell me this brace. It doesn't look as rigid to me, but the price is right. What do you guys think of it?

SF headers on a SH?

Do you know if the SF headers are the same as the SH? I've got a frankenbike, and to be honest, I don't know which of the 2 headers are on it.

Not my bike.

The price is a little steep, but if it rides as good as it looks, it might be worth it.
