So we have the shotgun seat and handlebar, great product. But... 40$ for some webbing? I'll stick with my 3$ option.

After a bit more thought and sliding into the DM's of a local robot part of it comes down to is properly built corners. To me cornering is the most fun part of riding a bike. Weather it be a flat corner, rut or a berm. Slapping a turn and coming out ... more »

In WA it feels like anything evergreen touches gets cursed. The new stuff out at raging is a great example. PT got turned into bummer land and lower PT is not great. The Methow Valley is getting the same treatment. My local trails at Port Gamble are ... more »

Added reply in a thread Fox DPX2 coil, is there a space for it? 11/13/2020 12:33 PM
