Re: Onda tire blowout

I saw these and couldn't find any information about them...except that Gwin rides the Aquilla's

I’ve gotten buyers to meet me just north of the border (e.g. in the parking lot of the Campbell River Store). They’re importing it to the US so let them deal with it.

Ya I would agree

Exporting Bike to WA

Interested to see if anyone has done this, I have a potential buyer lined up down in Blaine for my bike.  If I were to drive it across the border to sell it, would I need to declare to US customs that Im doing that?

Do I have to pay taxes on the way back up?

Loving my new E13 TRSr tires (the new ones released a few months ago). Noticeably faster rolling than the previous gen and still tons of grip. Casing feels similar to an EXO+ in the super scientific "hand feel test"....Tried the Assegai too and it's grippy but super slow rolling IMO...

Which Assegai did you run?

Im thinking about swapping out my Gen 1 E13 TRS+ for a Max Terra

Max Terra. Super slow IMO. Check out Cam's review of the new TRS on the front page (same ones I'm running). Might be worth a shot....

Read it and a few other private reviews, seems like the jury is still out on wet weather performance.

if you can, would love to hear about your thoughts on these new tires on shore in the wet

Re: Local source for 35MM R/S foam rings

Posted by: DanL

And now, where to get crush washers.....but I usually ask any of the shops that offer a lowers service like Steed, Dunbar, Cove etc

DanL- so your saying those guys/shops have them on hand to sell? rings and washers?

Im not sure if any shops just have the foam rings, but you'd just have to ask around. Dunbar?

If your foam rings arent in terrible shape, you can easily clean them up with a soaking in Isopropyl alcohol and then squeeze them between a shop towel or paper towel to dry them off.  Repeat until clean and near new.

You can also use some nice synthetic 0W-20 or 0W-30 (I use Mobil1) engine oil for the splash oil in the lowers if you want to save on buying the RS specific stuff.

Good luck!

Good call on the clean and soak, I have a feeling that the ones in my boxxer are doing to be shot.

Ill likely call a couple of shops, just not sure if its worth the work when they are readily available in Trumplandia

Local source for 35MM R/S foam rings

Guys,

Who sells these locally? vs buying seals and foam rings

I just did lower leg service for the first time and never realized how simple it is to do..now I have 2 other forks I want to do

Re: 2018 Cypress Trail Conditions Thread

Re: New shorts time. What you recommend? (Don't suggest RF Stage)

For pedaling I like Zoic Ethers, lots of strech- They have no use in rain or cold weather

For Shuttle days- TLD Moto: so stiff they stand on their own

Re: NSMB - 2019 - Full Suspension Bike Thread

Posted by: JBV

that's what i mean though. Harper has the terrain and high speeds where the new patrol would really shine. going up Harper, well it's going to suck either way, but at least the climbing position is comfortable on that bike , so you can enjoy the misery so to speak.  do people ride e-bikes up that mtn?

TBH- I didnt know people rode down harper..i thought it was the price to pay to get to the trails..like Fromme

And yes, EVERYTIME I ride Im passed by at least 1 ebike and a few times dirt bikes.

Re: NSMB - 2019 - Full Suspension Bike Thread

i'm still loving my very upgraded 2016 Patrol. i demo'd a new one wondering if the SBG changes would rock my world, but they didn't. the old Patrol makes a better trail bike. i've wondered where the new Patrol fits in. Harper is where.

Honestly it doesn't fit in there either, its heavy and sucks to pedal up- TBH- not sure any bike makes that fun

The place it fits- flowy, rocky downhill

Or Im just fat an out of shape

Re: Specialized Eliminator- Thoughts for Shore?

Thanks DC for your initial review.  I imagine it would make a great spring/summer tire

Any thoughts on the weight? or sidewalls- does it leak like the butcher?
