click on the locations tab, look for the ones close to you, this weekend is 1/2 price! A dana 44 with breaks on a half price weekend should be around $89.

Newark and North SJ have been ok for me, some say Oakland is ok sometimes too, but you will need to get there early.

Last time Ed and I went to the one in Newark(two weeks ago?) they had at least two D44s.

I know it's half price weekend! that's why I went yesterday! I may head up to the bay area (maybe newark?) this weekend before the sale is over.

Way to go Taylor, now you should talk to Jes about his Ox Locker and Superior shafts.
Did you get it at Newark?

Re: Sierra Fest 2009 Trip Report

I gotta say: the braking is significantly better with the D44. I don't know if that has to do with the way the brakes are designed, having more pad, or if the D35's brakes were just bad, but the stopping power is definitely better. And my parking brake actually works!!!
