Sounds good. You should enjoy the rides that much more now.
I have but two question. Do you ride with your seat that low all the time? Or, is that frame a little big for you?
How do you like the Marzzochi mx comp w/ eta? I just got back from my LBS an hour ago after having that same fork put on. Won't have a chance to use it till friday. So i'd like to hear what you think. (just put the same panaracers (XCpro 2.1) on too a few days ago, tho on front AND back)

How do you like the Rhyno Lite's? I jost installed one on the rear this winter but haven't had much of a chance to ride on it with the snow so far. Hopefully I'll get out this weekend for a longer time. Let me know.

no i am 6'4 and its a 23 inch frame. I ususally ride with the seat way up but i was practicing gettin on my back tire and hopping so i put it down low.Yuo will love the mx comp fork. the eta will make all the difference on the climbs. The rhyno lites are awesome. I am a pretty big guy and do alot of drops and it has not gone out of true yet.
I have a couple question on the Marzocchi if you don't mind.
1)-Do you know what kind of oil to use and how to check the level? They don't say anything about it in the manual !! (the paper manual or the pdf file)
2)-have you tried adjusting the internal rebound damper? I tried turning it all the way clocwise and it didn't make any difference. Clockwise is supposed to make it rebound slower.
I have a set of Rhyno Lites on my Jekyll.. pretty good set of wheels. I'm not a heavy guy, but I've had some wicked crashes on that thing, and they're still fairly true :)
Rhynolites are VERY nice.

03-19-03, 02:21 PM
