    Fantastic job, especially the 24 miles just starting out last month. How was it riding 24 miles? I remember my first 25 miles about a month after I started. It was rough the last few miles.

    You do know the Ford Escape is built on a Mazda FWD unibody platform based on the Mazda 626, right? It never had a truck chassis since it's introduction in 2001. Trucks are a body on frame chassis...

    What is your definition of "crush" because that is not a physical properties test that I am familiar with. You would test compression, rebound, and tensile. Crush is just a layman's term for...
