Shifting issues

try some thinner spacers, its just a set-up thing

definitely this is one of the best set-ups for shore riding. Good versatility without dropping the chain. The full guides are really only needed for high speed rough DHing

Thanks. I'll look into it.

Long falls to head

^W3rd. It's always best to walk your bike around than to be airlifted out.

and miss out on a free ride in a helicopter?

Slow fat guys doing the triple crown

tomorrow I will be in the big smoke and I am riding up old buck etc to cbc on my big bike getting ready for the triple crown..endoking was going to join me but the temptation of whisstla has proven to great (fancy nancy).

I will be at the bottom of the old buck at 10 am and wearing a pink tu tu.

Well, I might not make it to Whistler, but I'm still not sure about being anywhere at 10 AM on a Saturday. It just seems unlikely. Why so early?

Shifting issues

I'm running an inner e-ring [HTML_REMOVED] I'm having problems with my chain not dropping onto my chainring. It stays between the inner [HTML_REMOVED] outer bashguards, but kind of rides up against the inner ring [HTML_REMOVED] on top of the teeth of the chainring. Anyone else have this problem? Is it just a spacing issue? It's really annoying [HTML_REMOVED] kinda defeats the purpose of the inner ring…

Sorry if I'm hijacking…

Broken Bullit

Glad to hear it worked out. The folks at Westpoint are great. Enjoy the ride.

Long falls to head

my worst 2 have been about 10' over a car onto pavement. that was my one and only day on my brand new bike as a kid. happy birthday to me i got 57 stitches in the head. other one was 30' along and over some trees about 12' high. to pavement again. that one gave me a blood clot in the brain, coma for 2 weeks and a pretty messed up back for many months. i am super lucky. well lucky for someone who is always getting hit by cars. :P

Damn! Look both ways, bunny.

Mine wasn't from high up, but it was a high-speed torpedo right onto the top of my head. Fractured 5 vertebrae. Back is still a little messed up, but doesn't stop me from doing anything I used to do. Needless to say, I feel pretty lucky.

we are surrounded by idiots

yeah no kidding…lawyers….sheesh! :D

Hey, c'mon now… We're not all bad. (not that I'm a lawyer, yet. A couple more years)

That is incredibly bad news, though. Somebody needs to have a "word" with that guy. I know a Korean guy who breaks legs for money…;)

How long is it?

By over damped, it is slow to rebound no matter where I set the control. Plus it does not sag enough which might be a combination of my lightweight, 140 pounds, the stock spring which I'm told is good for a 170 pounder, and fork bushings not broken in yet and still tight. If I let all the air out of the SPV chamber, it feels much better, but that's not a riding option as it can cause damage to the damper side as Keefer found out. But hey, if Manitou says 25 hours, I got a ways to go yet. I still think the softer spring will help, but I'm not positive about that.

I found the same thing with my Slider Plus when I got it last year. Really slow rebound no matter what I did. I needed to put a stiffer spring in (even though I'm only 170 lbs.) to get it to rebound the way I want it. I'd make sure you've got it fully broken in before replacing the spring. Might just be a waste of money or worse. Mine seized completely on me after about a month on the stock spring.

Garbanzo trails?

^^ Is Manager rock going to be re-opened? I seem to remember them permanently closing it last year since too many accidents were happening on it.

I was under the same impression.
I'd be a bit relieved, too. That thing is scary. Now I don't have to chicken out.

Crap! I'm having issues trying to decide what bike I should be riding for this. I've got an '02 RM Stratos or my Bullit. I'm thinking the Bullit will be too much for the in-between mountain riding, but that the Stratos won't be enough for the down the mountain riding.

What trails will we be hitting [HTML_REMOVED] what will everyone be riding?

An old-school rave music question

DAMMIT

Time to get my hands on that track, dust off the strobe light, and break out the soother and whistle.

Don't forget your candy necklace [HTML_REMOVED] stupid-huge pants!

got to eat some poutine yesterday

so how serioius is this seperatist issue? does it have any substantial momentum behind it, and is it montreal-driven or more of a topic in the hinterland? i'd be interested to know

It's not that serious right now, but there was a very close referendum regarding separation in the not-too-distant past. The Federalists just squeaked out a victory.

Montreal has a very large anglo population, so it's not necessarily the driving force behind it. Plus it's a large business centre [HTML_REMOVED] so many of the people there realize that it wouldn't be good for trade, etc.

I'm sad to say that a lot of the momentum comes from those under 30. There's a certain level of resentment for the federal gov't [HTML_REMOVED] the rest of Canada, as if we're trying to deprive them of something (don't ask me what that something is. This country has kissed Quebec's ass to keep them here for almost 150 years). As with a lot of movements that are fueled by youth, once those involved get a bit older [HTML_REMOVED] start to understand how things work, their interest in the cause subsides. Unfortunately, there are always more kids to take their place, so the separatists will never completely go away.

People in Montreal know how to drive a car. That's something they could teach to the people in Vancouver.

:lol: It's funny cuz it's true!
