Just hiked and mtb on the moto trails.
Eagle is closer than IOCO so that is not a bad thing.

I plan on starting tonight.

Sweet action. Getting new tires on my bike…..can't wait for superhero traction.
Burke I live close to eagle and could fit in the odd ride too….

some of 09 evos had frame cracking issues but Beta warrantied both my swingarm and main frame to the 2010 model. the swingarm cracks at the kickstand mount, and you can tell if its an updated frame if the gascap is in the center (09 it was on an angle to the side)

that MR one for sale looks like the forks had the ano worn off. that would tell me its seen alot of miles. mabey its just the picture tho.

Ted in squamish has a 2011 300 gasgas for 6k for sale

new add
now with fork seal covers to conceal the concern?

I think this is Ted Blows old bike. While it might be used, I don't think I would call Ted an abuser.

It's not his bike. He had it with him at the demo day and it was another club member's bike. Bike kinda looked tired and use TLC.

I thought when I talked to Ted, I was sure he said he sold it to someone and that person was reselling….I've been wrong before though….lol

If he is covering up the stanchions what else is he hiding, pathetic.

Talked to an old guy a couple weeks ago,(ted?) he said that was his old bike and the second owner is selling it.

I'll be back on the bike soon (suffered the same fate as Ando..) after a fall/winter of too much work and not enough play. Need to see Bob about getting bearings and headsets and basically re-do whatever pivots on my 07 because she's a squirmy squeaky mess. Need to deal with brake levers too. Might need help from the pit crew on the rebuild!

(I also admit that thoughts of selling and letting someone else do the work while I prance around on a shiny new bike have entered my head… god damn everyone warned me about this!)
