    TOOLBOX with XMART BIKE AND BACKWARD FORK

    So I'm at the trail head today and some guy is "stretching" for his big ride...He yanks out a white styrofoam xmart helmet and jumps on his xmart bike....As he rides away, I realize the crown of his fork is facing inward, and his caliper/rotor is on the "wrong" side. The trail he was starting was not mickey mouse, and I didnt have time to catch him to warn him. I hope he didnt fall, actually thats a lie. I hope he did fall and break that xmart bike so he'll go to his LBS and buy a real one. BTW...as I was flipping through Maxim Magazine last night (Nikky Hilton on cover) I noticed a review of some bikes and one of them had the fork installed incorrectly.....who edits these things????

    Happens all the time. These are usually the folks who get airlifted out after trying something stupid
