      I tend to maneuver down downhill tracks, as opposed to riding down them...

      Good comeback steve. I agree.
      Go rigid and single speed one day.

      lol, some rocks are just too big to go over though.
      Last time I went to majura I was blowing out my a ss. When we got to th top of the top I just barrelled down a big chute, got down in about 2mins - but boy was it hairy !

      Looks expensive. I bought a new bike recently as my old bike snapped the frame as it rusted.
      All I could afford was $299.00 Taiwanese el-cheapo (called Giant/Yukon):

      I have had the 05 for a bit over a year now and have been really happy with it. It's a really versatile bike that can handle a beating. I think the extra weight is worth the extra strength. Enjoy !

      That was the only thing about the sasq that worried me. The weight. It is not to heavy really and i figure ill have the bike for a long time so am happy with the extra strength. Maybe ill upgrade some of the crappier parts to CF.
      Aaron, dig it up! Come out for a cruise. Ill be taking it very easy.
      Should i buy a full face helmet if i want to go crazy???

      Have any of you fallen 'properly' yet ?

      More scars than I care to show you including a good 10cm Jobbie on my right wrist. I've still got my Ghetto Giant Carbon Fibre single speed with Rock Shox Mag 21's. I always hurt myself more falling on the road than falling offroad. Funniest was when I clipped a tree after swapping to riser bars when they first came out.

      when I first started riding in the national park at audley the riser bars were clipping trees badly, after about 15min riding I clipped one and it swung me around into the bush, I got rid of them on the track and never went back.
      Full face helmet, yes I think its a good idea. A beanie is only good if you dont like what your face looks like and want some free plastic surgery.

      Do you like having teeth?

    8. 01-31-2006 08:49 PM #33
      teeth - yes that to. I can vouch for my helmet saving my choppers on many occasions.

    9. 01-31-2006 09:02 PM #34

      my 2 front top teeth are false. well,.. dead nerves, crowned and capped or whatever they did, ...but smashed out the originals.... so yeah! Go full face Helmet !!!! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      you dont talk with a listhp do you? i know its cruel but i had to say it sorry!

      sweatyworker; same thing with me, although i swear the tree came for me as my friend passed through just before me.. my bar clipped it and over i went and my shoe flew ahead of me! i think i was hurt more from laughing at myself

      who here 'clips' in ? and who rides freestyle ?

    12. 02-01-2006 12:46 AM #37
      Clipped in 99% of the time, unless i am riding/mucking around on the 20 inch.
      I have a fixie with 46:16 gearing, it's a roll out just over 77 inches, anything over 30ish kays/ph wants t flick you off. I have to be clipped in on that.

      Edit:
      Hmm, they are not sure if they have any. Maybe crank bros 5050 instead!

      Rob, let me know when you are in town...

    20. 02-02-2006 04:54 AM #45
      Hey, good choice. I have had a set of those since about 1999 and they are still going strong. some of the pins are missing, but they have not bent and the bearings are still good.
      Upgradeitis on bikes is maybe worse than cars. Look out.
