    Some upgrades

    Some people have asked me to show them my upgrades since the last time I posted the bike The biggest ones are fork, seat, evil bashgaurd (should be a chainguide and a new handlebar but I have to 'fix' it on there.

    This also gave me a chance to test some settings on my new camera

    Props to SLC_PUNK for getting everything out here to me. Thanks bud

    Haha..thats still too short for any real trail riding. I ride with it a touch higher when on the trails. When I am doing north shore or dh it is an inch off the bottom

    and yes..I am 6'5 with a lot of leg..

    I but used or previous years. Excluding the chainguide I don't have anything 'new' on that bike. Not worth the cash usually to buy right out of the factory

    Never to ride a trail again. Its a tosser for me. I want to be able to rip up the trails AND the mountain. If I get the biglink I might screw myself. Maybe I need a 4th bike

    You'll find that with the "new" kit, ie... RC w/Pro-Pedal that it pedals better than your stock setup. Not to mention I know you have more of a DH tendancy than trail riding. I'm telling you brother that bottomless feeling of 8.1" of travel is nice....

    BTW... Hopefully I'll have my new Dorado MRD X-Works by Tuesday

    If anything I have more or a shore tendancy...but yes I will be ordering one mid season probably. I want to dh purely but haven't hit the mountain (I just got the bike)...all of my rides up to this point were shore style riding and some long dh (but the kind that end a trail ride )...

    Jesus..your richer than I...that fork is worth more than my bike haha

    Phatman. This post is for you. I raised up my fork and changed the HA setting on my bike. Does this look better I guess this is my dh mode.

    That reminds me...I just bought a new silver Race Face Diabolus stem. Now what do I do with it? LMFAO!! I have not even ridden with it yet; as I've had a cast on.

    Any one want to buy it?

    hey, I was just wondering how you change the HA? Do you change the amount of travel on the rear to get it steeper?

    Two things.

    1 - I usually ride my fork so about an inch of the stanchion is sticking out. This in effect changes the ride height of the fork hence changing my headangle. For the slacker headangle. I moved the stanchions to correct position which changed the HA about a degree or so.

    2 - Bighits have settings to choose. You have 5 inch 69 degree or 5 inch 67 degree OR 6.5 inch 69 degree and 6.5 inch 67 degree. Took me 5 minutes to change the geometry of my bike. Very easy.

    If you look at pics 1 and 2 you can see the top of the jrT has a bit of stanchion sticking out

    Hey no worries mate! I wish we could have made that Chainguide work when I was there. And what's that? The bike is still in the same place as when I left Did you guys get that much snow after we headed out? I say get out and ride it around in the whitestuff anyways! Or take a bus down to squamish, I saw quite a few guys riding on my way threw when we left.


    Haha.. well anyways brah... can't wait to be living closer to you in about 2 months!
    if you aren't having fun, then you get rigid, stiff, crash, cry and then you make your new friend run away..... (there don't you feel less nervous now?)

    Bike has moved. I just put it back ...snow is almost gone off of my deck. That is a good sign. At least now I will have pics of the trails this year...not that it matters since you will be here.
