Haha, yes, spend the money. I fought them off for years and now I don't know how I ever lived without them.

Certainly the best investment I've made, I also have sets or ratcheting wrenches with swiveling heads....great for tight spots.

Maybe its just me and at the time my skill level was very low but that novak was a ***** for me to get in there and adjusted properly. Once I got it setup properly though

ROOKIE.... naw I think it was easy because Mike basically left it assembled so I'm sure that saved time. I don't know how they come from Novak but I assume it's in a bunch of pieces.

Mostly assembled, but all messed up. Have to take it apart and put it together the right way. Haha. Well at least mine was like that.

I did something similar, had that sucker perfectly aligned and it shifted worse than when I had it all tweaked out, haha. I have no idea why, but it looked beautiful. Oh well now I'm ballin with my Novak from tractor supply.

I see nothing wrong with that, we can start with Cougar buttes, then if need be a Hammer trail, Boone road is only 20 miles down the road
