HID's- Flood or Spot??

thanks. A single HID light mounted on the lid will be the only option. I may continue to run bar halogens but it's probably pointless…

HID's- Flood or Spot??

There is a lot of posts about HID lights but no info on Flood vs Spot. I've ridden with a friend who has a Trailtech spot. It made my halogen lights look like a pen light!! Would the flood be even better?? BTW- I'm buying the Trailtech HID

Thanks

shoes?

Take a look at the Helly Hansen Jaeger shoes. I got a pair (black/black) about a month ago and I couldn't be happier. Very burly and extra sticky.

05, 06, 07 Norco Six Frame weights?

Being that this is such a popular frame (I own an 05), I'm hoping that someone on the list has put his (or her) frame on a scale. I'm interested in the changes they have made over the years and how that has translated into absolute lbs. Norco does not supply frame info on the website only full bike weight. Thanks!

Big bike vs. small bike...decisions

I'd agree with the majority above-If you don't need the money keep the bikes. At least give your big bike a chance to prove itself worthy and have one last ride on it up at whistler…then just think of how little the resale is …

I had the same kinds of issues with my Six- do I lighten it up?-and do I keep the bigger bike? (an older 03 launch worth nothing today) or do build up a hardtail for more XC/epic spins? Well i ended up doing all three. My Six is an 05, but weighs in at 36.8 lbs- i have a pearl shock that I

Hi Tom,

I switched a 2005 AM1 for a 2006 Z1 SL on my Norco Six because of the 20mm axel and the fear of the AM not being able to withstand bigger hits on places like whistler. If I am not mistaken the AM crown is lighter duty than the Z1. Keep in mind-I weigh 195lbs. I do miss the ETA on the AM!

I ride all mountion i.e.-Burke, SFU, Fromme, Whistler, Galbraith.

Are RockShox rear shocks supposed to have smaller eyelets?

Go to http://www.bikeparts.com/index.asp. I bought a complete mounting kit for a pearl for $29USD shipped to van.

Thanks!!! Problem solved! Rep+ for your help.

Raising money for trail days?

why not?

we get people that come out to a trail day, spend the day working and donate cash or cheque.

Online donations are so much easier though, since they make it direct into the bank account automatically, and you get a reciept right away. It really save us a lot of work when you donate online. Thanks!

Certainly both would work but the online donation was what I was suggesting. I don't know your current plans to raise funds and awareness (and I know very little about trail days) but I just wonder if anything else would be appropriate to get more people involved. What would you assume is the avg. trail day participation rate? 75-100 people? Compare this to the avg. number of riders who access a trail on a given month or even year?? If each of those riders _who were not able to attend _a trail day gave just a bit of $$- that could help in a lot of ways. The "trail day" is simply a push to remind the user that their support is needed in any way possible. I know it would work for me.

marzocchi's bushings are the same as fox so it uses the same hardware as well.

Didn't get a chance to find out about the reducers it's been pretty busy at work. will see for tomorrow

many thanks James! I am concerned that I would need bushings and hardware specific to the bikes that I ride; an 05 Norco SIX and an older stinky…or find someone who has the machinery to do what Bossyrossy has done.

Thanks again for all the info. I saw the pics of boogie man, and it looks very solid! The NSMBA site makes it very easy to link on and donate.

My hat is off to you guys (and gals.) you make the Shore the great place that it is.

Would it be appropriate to put the word out that trail days would be a great time to donate $$ if you can't donate time?
