I'm going out for a ride in a few. I'm gonna hit up a 35 foot drop I've been looking at for a while. I'll be solo so I wont get any pics.

Junkyard and Sui are having a one sided long distance romance! Santiago's Big Dummy takes up as much curb space as a 59 caddy. D-minors new ride next season is the Transitiomn "holy ****" with the front suspension done by RST's "are you kidding" with 23 inches of plush supension. Gastro just qualified for the supercross nationals. And I'm going to Moab tomorrow!

That's because you're a hack. Non-hacks could get the picture and do the drop.

She won't return my advances because she know's I'm a talentless hack.

26 inch wheels suck. I did a pinky test and 29ers don't spin up slower either.

Agreed, they not only spin up just as fast, but they are also just as strong, and with the 29x6.5 meats that I run, Trail damage never occurs in muddy conditions.
Heck The DH crowd wishes they were manly enough to pull this off!

Gosh, you're so close it's spooky! Just bought this off e-bay for a song:



I also ordered an investment-cast 83mm bottom bracket shell from Henry James, which I'm going to weld in ahead of the swingarm pivot. Now I have to decide whether to run an external-cup BB or go with a BMX-ish crankset like a Gusset Pygmy. Kevin at Transition is going to send me some new decals so that I can still rep the brand with my rebadged ride. 12" front and rear - - yowza!

Hmm, chainring mounted inside the seat stays? I ran that back in 83. Extended the swingarm 13 foot for hill climbing. Ran a 53/11 combo for the steep climbs, slacked off to a 69/4 combo in the milder events!

If you go as 66, I believe it will be self-evident. Throw on a sou'wester to boot and you could go as 'The Ancient Mariner.'

Do you know what '66 looks like? I was under the impression that he couldn't be viewed with human eyes.

No, the blindness is a result of the hooch he made you drink.

I'm pretty sure the blindness came from when the breeze blew his utili-kilt up.

Awesome! It's always good to have the photographic proof. Found this when I was digging through some pics of my bigger stunts: Outside Kelowna this spring:

Hey 66, I went camping up in Washington in a park that looked suspiciously like that. What's the name of the place?

Also, I'm aware that's photoshopped.

That looks a lot like the Rock n Roll on the last race pics you put up but I'm sure it's really not.

Why do you think it's photoshopped? It's not,it's the old rock quarry at Dupont. I cant believe you didn't see it since you rode all of it.
