Just curious. What's up with there being no Last Post for the Off the Bike forum? It's back! Thanks.

Reply to Chromag + Hydro Brakes 3/4/2014 3:46 PM
I like the feel of my Chromag bars, but they do tend to have delicate finishes, whether painted or anodized. And I'm not so stoked on Avid brakes. I'm guessing that they are bled by machines at the factory that somehow cram too much brake fluid into ... more »
Reply to 26/650B is to DH as 250/450 is to Moto? 2/24/2014 6:39 PM
Excellent topic. But I don't personally think a good idea. But it brings up another idea. Sure almost every open minded company is carefully testing all of the options, but some are just dead set one way or the other, or the other. It would be interesting ... more »

Only if the club is already signed up or willing to sign up. It's a group discount rate that I get through the local community hall.

Smash out some runs on that thing while you wait for a good deal on a Boxxer. They're solid stuff and I'm sure the Domain is too, just less adjustable. My old 32mm World Cup is still going strong.

I looked it up over on the Rock Shox site and it appears that it has external rebound, usually found on the bottom of one of the legs, internal preload, adjusted by adding or removing little disks on top of the spring, and overall spring weight adjusted ... more »

I'm not too computer techy, so I don't actually know how to link you, but I'd shell out for a stainless steel Chris King.

Are you just gloating over your score, or do you have a source for more?
Reply to Glory 2 fork help 2/13/2014 7:05 PM
As far as I know, all Rock Shox products are adjustable, in at least rebound and probably compression as well. And yes there are spring or air pressure options. Talk to your local bike shop and if they're worth their pay they should be able to help you ... more »

To go bigger in the front, you'll have to go wider. Meaning that you'll have to shift the chain line outboard to allow for a bigger chainring. It's always best to keep everything in line, so you would need to space it out in the hub as well. From the ... more »

I've never done it, but I'm prety sure that you just Private Message the seller by clicking on their profile name. Then arrange a final selling price and circumstances, whether Pay Pal or personal check etc.

Thats a bit harsh. I didn't think that a team could be so offensive to somebody. Anyway, where does that put Gwin? Is it a strictly factory team now?
Reply to 2014 Team Updates - Who's In, Who's Out? 1/28/2014 7:23 PM
I was wondering about him. He looks so freaking fast, but I'd never heard of him. I'm stoked to see him on a good team.

I was really hoping that The Real Team Rumors had come out of hiding.

I just watched a Fit Bikes video and it's plain that with the prevalence of brakeless riders, what the world needs is a new hub design. Here's the Million Dollar Idea ™. I didn't know that I could make a trade mark sign by doing ™ that. Crazy. Any ... more »

I just got done watching a best of Gwin vid on YouTube. It was easy to hate on him when he was dominating and making the World Cups kind of boring, but I really miss having an American champion. We know that he lost his mechanic back to Hill, but have ... more »

I guess that I got carried away. Evil for life!

I really wish religious fundamentalists would just mind their own business. Don't blow stuff up because you don't agree, don't hate others who don't subscribe to your god and let me ride the bike that I want to. The "E" in E-13 stands for Evil, which ... more »

I've always hated the "Look at me" concept of the Bump, but I gotta do it. Bump. There, I'm shamed. I've ridden it plenty of times before the fire, usually getting dropped off at the top of Allen St. and cranking out the 13 Mile fire road climb up to ... more »

Agreed. Dirt should be at the top and MBA not even on the list.
