Smooth, ok that must really suck. Start looking for some new parts, was it the stock P.1 fork? If it was...go with a Marzocchi DJ fork, they're better for jumping.

I hope your frame is alright. Maybe you can get that rigid fork you wanted now...

Look at the first 3 posts in this list. Flashing sigs, flashing avatars...its completely annoying, it won't happen here, but on another forum I was on all that crap got banned. Best thing that ever happened to it.

I find quite the opposite, I find myself close to blocking all of the posts for myself so I can surf this site in peace. Yours isn't bad, its subtle.

Heck I even have a small one. its the overpowering making my entire screen blink thats annoying.,

well I think sigs that are flashing like really flashy and whatnot is annoying, reminds me of a popup banner. But flashing avatars i dont even notice, probably because they are small.

I have it set to not display avatars and sigs at me. Makes things much easier.

I was waiting for someone to comment on mine, lol

It was originally a photoshop project, but I thought it looked neat, so I resized it and made a few lighter/darker frames. I've been looking for a better one, I'll find one eventually.

I like reading sigs and I like good avatars. I don't want to have to sacrifice that for some kid thinking blinking lights are cool

We should coordinate another one of those, but with everyone having the option. Better yet, have a set of members have the same sig and avatar, and create a 'gang', lol

Nice job P1, you can be proud of yourself now
