Re: NSMB - 2018 - Hardtail Thread

On the topic of tires, I see there’s a high roller II in 27.5x3.0 good? Or too slow rolling.

Re: NSMB - 2018 - Hardtail Thread

I put one ding in the rear rim today riding with about 17-18psi. Jumping onto a pointy rock probably was responsible for that. But with the way I ride, and much like the tires, I too am in the “mid-fat” range, it’s going to need a rear wheel soon.

The fork was meh, but not unrideable. I think 140mm with a good damper would be perfect. Hmm I do have a couple avalanche carts for 32mm boxxers sitting around. I bet Craig can supply parts to make it fit a pike.

I’m still surprised how smooth and stables it rides. Great on steeps, does jumps and hucks like a big bike, just stiffer. 

I also bent the seat.

Re: NSMB - 2018 - Hardtail Thread

Just picked this up. It’s got fat tires and a dropper post, I’m set.

But I’ll probably be looking for a new fork in a couple months. 140 or 160? Fox or rockshocks?

Small trucks

yea i figured that was custom ordered…

thats a sweet truck…

that truck with a 6" drop would look badass and some non factory wheels.. call it done

I can get an axle flip kit to drop the rear 4 or 6", the front only needs to come down 2-3". But no one makes a drop spindle yet, and I don't like just lowering springs.

Small trucks

Some one custom ordered it then bailed. saw it in a random email from Ford, thought to my self "damn that's bad ass". Costs $31000. Best part was I got $15000 trade in on my stang, 2014 v6 base(payed $21000 2.5 years ago) with 70000kms, needing tires and brakes, and with a $13000 icbc claim on it.

It weights right around 4000lbs and has just under 400HP. It's fast. The "Sport" package just adds painted bumpers, fog lights, and a sticker. Bench seat seats 3 just fine, and even though it's a single cab it's got a lot of room behind the seats. And even though it's a base model truck, it still has all the cool Bluetooth shit.

Needs to be lowered, or atleast leveled out in the back. Needs a limited slip diff, because that's not even a factory option any more. And maybe a blower to fill the extra space on top of the motor.

Banshee legend

Crisis averted, new bearings installed along with a crack free swing arm. Just in time for crankworx.

Banshee legend

I'm desperately in need a couple bearings for my 2011 legend. The two that make up the lower pivot on the swing arm. Who around Vancouver caries banshee or might have some parts. I'm replacing my cracked swing arm with a new spare, but the new one has no bearings, and I can't get the old ones out in usable condition.

best am/enduro frame under $500

A quick search of Craigslist offers a 11 year old Ellsworth, looks clean but a newer shock couldn't hurt.

Monster t enduro seals?

But I just got another monster t. Bringing my total to 3.5 99-02 monsters. I got a mint 99 currently on my banshee legend, a 00(has a compression adjuster instead of the second rebound knob) polished on my hard tail, An 01( with 02 decals) on my 05 shore, and a 02 but it needs seals. I'm also short one set of crowns and a axle.

Oh and the best part
The 99 was $100
The 00 with $80? But no crowns
The 01 $150
The 02 $150 in rough shape, but had 03 crown and stem

Are the enduro seals for monsters any good? Or are they way to tight and stick like on other forks?
