You guys are complaning about your bikes. My bike barely switches gears anymore and it creaks like hell. My front fork only has 63mm of travel and I max it out going off curbs.

That bike looks like Christmas!



pro9 Whining about your lack of mechanical acumen is irrelevant when we have a complete Barnetts manual available for download so you could show your curb-dropping machine some TLC and give it a tuneup.
