A nice size berm at the top so you can launch down there at top speed. Now that I'd like.

If you could only ride one of the three

Not a tourist, but a fucking idiot.

Cypress.

I never had the time/bike as I recently recovered from a long-term injury which is why I was not able to ride for over a decade, but thanks for the personal comment.:rolleyes:

Just rode Fromme this morning for the 1st time solo as both my ridding buddies are out for a long time due to injuries. Pushing the 50lb Aline up there wasn't too much fun, but I took it like a man. It's part of the terrain.

Loved it. Can't wait to try out the other mtns.

Man there are alot of used bikes on the market

Same goes with the gear as well.

I sold my 05 888VF's in 5 mins for $250.

You put up a good price and the 1st person will buy it.

All depends on how much you need the money.

Most things are overpriced because these bikes we have are more sentimental than anything else.

I'm looking forward to the '07 season eventhough this one's not quite done yet.

I'd like to see the 'ol No Joke (RIP), replaced with a similar flowing trail that would link Freight Train.

Some more intermittent rain and girls handing out powerade at select refueling stations on the mountain.

Used bike question

I'd give Norco a call 604-552-2930 and get transferred to their service department.

Ask one of the guys there.

That will probably be your best bet.

Those guys have decades of experience/knowledge between them.

Overtime usually has a few kicking around for cheap. Give them a call.

Will do.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.

I just want to try it out. Otherwise I'll stick with the Hussefelt that came stock on my Aline.

You want to count how many kids, students are back to school ?

I'd think the answer is obvious.

90% of bikes are kids that want ca$h. Simple.

I've never been to either of the 3. Only ridden Whistler and I've lived my whole life in Van.

Does that make me a tourist ? :(

I need to get up there with some people soon.

Thanks

Everyone I talk to about riding, I always say that I'm so fortunate and lucky to be able to go up there every 4 days (work rotates between Van/Whis) and ride.

We are so damn lucky.

It's cheap.

It's the best (so I hear/read) riding on the planet.

The girls are great.

The guys on most trails are friendly.

The trail builders are gods and I pray to them every night.

The medics/trail crew are individual supermen.

We're in heaven up here.

Nice thread. :)

Looking for Best Budgent DH Bike

I'd find the best 06 A-line or Stinky and pick. You won't loose between either.

Getting towards the end of the season so people are selling.

School's back in so kids want money.

College/Univ's back in so students need tuition cash.

It's buyers market fellas. :)

That's just the way it is.

Is it the same as the ones on the '04 Super-T?

If yes I have one. some hardware (bolts) may be missing, no reducers, $20

Not a clue. I haven't seen one in person.

I'll try to do some digging and see.

(thanks for the offer, I may take you up on that) :)
