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

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???

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.
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
i think it is age that is holding us back...
here's my ride... 04 VT3 ....
added.... Titec Knock Sooper Post, Dice Whiplash Hydros, Cateye Cordless

Upgradeitis on bikes is maybe worse than cars. Look out.
