Yeah, that's what I was looking for, too.

i guess someone lost the bet???

What I want to know is where or who had his clothes? One would think that it would be too tempting for his friends to make it difficult for him to get them back! Nothing like having to cruise through the village too!!

I bet he wished that he didn't have to get off his bike to walk past the injured rider on A-line. He sure seemed in a hurry to jump back on his bike!!!

Riding harsh washboard

What exactly is the difference between spiking and stacking?
Stacking I understand, too slow a rebound rate, fork doesnt come back fully before the next hit, whats spiking though?

From what I understand, spiking is caused by hydraulic lock out. ie. in my case the ssv wasn't allowing oil through the valve when it was supposed to thereby losing the advantage of the hydraulic compression.

I was having the same problem with my DJ1. I have since found out that this has been a common issue due to an internal valving problem (the speed selector valve). They will warranty this issue for you. Highly suggested before your fork dies like mine did (cracked stanchion and cracked M-arch)- both caused by the ssv. Luckily, mine is still under warranty.

Be careful with all those young men, Judy!! Are you going to be up there on Sun too? There's a group of us going on Sun so I'll keep an eye out for you so we can go for some runs!

Cheers! **

What did you have warrantied and how long did it take to get an answer? JF is dealing with my fork that was just sent in for warranty issues.

Re: Odd wear on a HighRoller

**Maybe you guys could comment on the type of wear that would be expected out of a 24" x 2.7 50a Highroller tire. Please consider its been very dry this summer and have used the tire for 3 months.

It seems that the knobs or tread of the highroller tire have been tearing off and coming off in chunks rather than wearing down. Some people say this is to be expected but according to Maxxis it is not normal.

Have you guys found similar results with the 50a, 42a, or 40a durometer tires. I know the 60a does not have this problem.

If this is to be expected, where can I find a 24" tire like a Mich.;) **

I've got the exact same tire - had it on since mid July - seems to be wearing evenly and normally despite lots of riding on varied terrain.

Excellent article. It certainly articulates how the ride is so much more than just the physical act.

physio therapists

The 8 Rinks physio guys are great. They have a modern and progressive approach to physio. They also deal with elite level athletes and understand how important a FULL recovery is. Not just, you'll be able to do most things, but yeah, lets make sure that we do everything so that you can rip again. They did a great job on my sister's knee. Try to see Alex McKechnie.
