The Untold Story of Absolute Evil... and How the Undead May Rise

my 2 cents as a long time Evil Revolt owner - I've been riding my Revolt for a few seasons (I have one of the early production models) - zero issues whatsoever. Same as some other friends who have Revolts from back then and are riding them still. I know there are others that have had issues and we are fortunate to still be riding our Revolts. It remains the best-riding DH bike I've ever been on or owned (and I've ridden numerous). Still love it. I hope Evil works its way out of its troubled past and into a position where it is, once again, shaking things up for the bigger bike brands. And that those unfortunate enough to have warranty issues get to enjoy an Undead! :)

Looking for Chilcotin Recommendations from Lorna Lake

Man, your question is identical to the one I was going to ask! Did Warner last year with a detour up windy pass and down. Going to try one lake further this year and land in Lorna. Have you gone on your trip yet? We're heading this weekend.

I've been recommended by my local friend that option #1 is hands-down the way to go. Do you have any gps map of your ride or know where to get one?

Cheers,

PM me your email for the .gpx files for Lorna/Deer/Gun and other rides there.

I did Lorna/Deer/Gun last weekend and there is more snow than usual on the north (up) side of Deer pass but less than one would expect. Funny enough, the snow on the south (descent) side of the pass was more of an impediment. Ps the wildflowers are pretty amazing right now. While you are there, be sure to do the Taylor/Windy/Spruce loop - the Windy descent to Spruce is in the best condition I've ever seen it.

Agree that Option 1 Deer pass is the way to go. Amazing view from the top of Deer Pass… and then a great downhill rip to the valley floor. Payback for the b1tch of a climb/hike to get to the top of Deer…

same, sweet fa here in van. and i've got a fast connection. and two other friends at home are having troubles too - they have nothing now. complete incompetence…. how about some live dry runs before the finals? making sure your servers have capacity so they don't get overloaded? although i'm sure we'll see some excuse later….

Stolen - Orange 223, custom matte black

hmmm. most of that bike looks like mine (sans the bar and pedals). unsure why the whole spec and pics i posted years ago doesn't show up. and looks like sticker and headtube badge got applied (funny, i still have the headtube badge kicking around that i was about to put on the bike)….

Stolen - Orange 223, custom matte black

I was burglarized on Thurs Sept 15 (Vancouver, BC). The main thing stolen was my Orange 223. At least that was the most important item.

It is custom painted matte black (brand new paint job, as yet unridden), no decals or headtube badge, with a Marzocchi 888RC. Black on Black on Black. Can't miss it as only a few exist in Canada.

Please keep your eyes out! Needless to say, I'll be rewarding anyone who helps me get it back.

Thanks

Jeff Bartel

bike insurance - any suggestions?

Originally posted by /v\ark
**Here's a moral question for ya Mulletron.

When you're getting your biked quoted at a shop, do you accept retail value of total parts? or price paid?
For instance, I bought a dee-max wheelset for $600. Retail was over $1800………
or i've got a easton mg 60 dh stem. Retail is around $250 while I paid $90.

I could have my bike insured for close to $7000, if going by total of retail values. I didn't pay close to that.

You need two shops for a quote and I know two that would very easily sign my bike off for the total retail value……….

Speaking of which, I should get some insurance one of these days

**

yeah, leelau's right. the insurance is "replacement value". my quotes are retail. currently, that's over 8K for my bike with taxes. and while i got it for under half, i have to insure it for replacement value, even tho it costs me a lot more.

What alarm company are you talking about and which ones have you looked at PM me if you want.

Hey Rich,

I'm getting an alarm shortly in my new apt in east van - gotta protect the V10 as much as possible. the goods so far (from a friend who just got an alarm installed) is that a basic alarm from ADT starts around $200 with the monthly just under $30 for monitoring. worth it for me, since i'm not sure if i'll have any bike insurance once i get my new policy in july.
