1 Day tickets for Whistler

Got a cousin coming into town this winter, likely going to get just one day at Whistler, can't even see one day ticket prices on their website anymore. Anyone know best place to get tickets? Do 7-11 still do cheap day tickets?

Devinci Troy (new model)

Its a great bike, did everything I asked of it, pedalled great, active suspension, just swapped it for a transition patrol as i'm down to one bike and wanted something a little bigger, hence I will soon have a 2014 carbon troy, medium with new wheels off the transition, once I get the pike back from being serviced.

Trailer hitch Bike tray rack- Advice

I picked up a 2 bike 1up recently, shipped to the border, with the exchange rate, probably cost about the same as buying a kuat here, crossed over on a weekday before work, they guy didn't even ask what I was doing in the states, guess they don't get people doing a lot of shopping at that time, just said you're good and waved me on so no taxes :) best thing is it comes on and off in seconds, folds up and fits into the back of my golf, so less risk of a ticket when i'm not using it.

3D Printing?

Anyone here gotten into this? I ordered a printer and scanner this week. After a little practice, gonna try scanning broken kids toy parts to see how well I can repair, and avoid throwing into the waste stream.

I detect a flaw in your plan :)

Bike Maintenance & Record keeping Apps

You should all use Bike Setup because its mine, I had plans to add a bunch of the other stuff you mention, but unfortunately my wife who is the programming brains behind it, found a new job and doesn't have the time to take it past the original idea.

Anyone have a Alu Norco Range?

I can insert the stock post 213 mm on my large Range and that is approx. 40mm past the bottom of the top tube. I looked down the tube and noticed that there were 2 small holes drilled that center around the top tube and my post does go past them. These holes may have a burr on them that is preventing your dropper from going down any further.

Thanks, if you're getting that then looks like 17cm seems about right for a small, we'll step down to a 5" reverb which provides a bit lower seat height at minimum.

Anyone have a Alu Norco Range?

The stock 100m dropper doesn't get out of the way enough for her so was looking at at 150mm dropper, but it needs to go all the way into the frame to give the correct pedalling height at full extension.

The 100mm that came on the bike has the same lower length as the 150 ks lev. the current post has about 2 inches exposed and won't go in any further. Just curious as it stops right at the bottom weld of the top tube and internally looks like its smooth for those 2 extra inches.

A 5" reverb has a shorter lower length so that's the next best option if the 150 is a no go.

p.s. if anyone is looking for a cheap 100mm dropper (KS e-ten with remote), 30.9mm dia, let me know.

Anyone have a Alu Norco Range?

Can you tell me how far you can insert your seatpost, on my wife's small 2015 Alu model, it looks like there should be close to 22cm but only getting about 17cm (which aligns with the bottom of top tube), I'm curious if there could be any issue with slight deformation or if thats normal? it looks like there is a stop around the 22cm mark. If anyone would care to measure how far in they can stick their seatpost it would be appreciated, even if they have medium or large, it would be useful for comparison.

Cheers!
