I discoverd that once you bring the bike inside the nanotech killer mud quickly reverts back to goopy form and makes a big pile of crap under your bike. I rode back to the car wash and hosed it off.

To quote you: "This sh1t is crazy, and you can quote me on that!"

Fun ride though, All y'all missed out!

Looking forward to getting out there again sometime soon. It's been a couple of years since I've been in there and I knew there was a lot of work going on... they've done a great job!

2005 2006 models were not. Don't know about 2007 but I would assume it is not as well.

Is the fork that comes with the track pro drillable? or would that compromise it's strength too much.

I can't wait for the next alleycat, my knee is slowly getting better and I might have the new bike to ride it on WOOT. As well more, and hopefully better, helmet cam footage.

I have wanted to ride that track since I was like 8 years old. I will come back here from anywhere I am to get on it and ride the HELL out of that thing. It will totally deserve a bike built up just for it. Please let it them figure out the insurance.

This might make for a decent project bike? Price seems high though...

if it's the 8 track over/under you're speaking of , you've just made me feel really old.

I just found this neat skid video from Vancouver

Looks like they made good use out of their abundance of damp pavement

Ramsay's has a bit of sale on. 50% off shoes with a few sizes left. For $8 CAD shipping, probably worth a look.

It is carbon-fibre, right? So yeah, theoretically, it is drillable but I personally wouldn't drill CF as you might really mess up the integrity of the fork.

Not royalty free music, music that you have the rights to give permission for use for. I make videos and am trying to get away from using commercialized music from the labels and starting to use independent artists from whom I have permission to use their music. I can't give you exactly what it would be used for, but likely a biking or skateboarding video, you'd be credited but probably not paid. Unless, of course, the video went huge or something.

I need to start sleeping more.
