Thanks a bunch, ---> if you like givin gear advice, read on :P
---> Quick points helping me decide:
I had a bad experience w alphas... them and me... just didn't mix. Looooooved my THalls... but after all the miles I put on 'em, they're dead now.
I love the idea of early rise, thats why i bought alpha two years ago and not a new Thall... If I didn't like the alpha, is it typical to not like most early rise style... ?
