Thanks. It's been good to me. Numbers on the new bike are dialed, and I've told my rep. to get my name on a frame....

Update : 2 full seasons on this thing, and I'm going for number 3. I've done things and went places that used to scare me on my DH bike. Some tweaks here and there to dial her in over time and I still don't feel the need to get a new bike.

Here's what a Kaiser looks like that you can actually buy:

I've been running them for a while now. Great tire. This other version on Gee's bike and your photo looks better for where I live, and a bit smaller too. (The current Kaisers in my ... more »

Dynasys, a blunder?!? Personally, I think the 10 speed stuff shifts better than their 9 speed ever did. The XTR Rapidfire Plus shifters are brilliant. You can shift them exactly like Sram, and I particularly like when you shove the forward paddle all ... more »

I remember that one. Let's just hope Shimano decides to do it!

Not gonna lie. I want it. Also, I want more info on those tires. They aren't Kaisers...

Hadley just makes really nice spacers for their SS hubs. (The whole package comes with Ti allen bolts too. Pretty flossy.) Here's a pic:

New thread My Trance X Advanced trail machete 3/5/2011 1:33 PM
