At your weight, I'd say definitely build the stronger wheels. Perhaps go alloy and use the savings for the new wheels. That or go carbon and start saving for new wheels while destroying the stockers. Just my opinion. Though I was pretty impressed with ... more ยป

Demo 6 would suggest a niner. And it's not so much a yellow bike, but it does have yellow on it.

Just say NO to E bikes. Use your legs. It's why we ride.

Last I checked, owls don't nest on trails.

I've built a lot of Cannandales in my time and can attest to their build quality. If it fits, I'd say grab it.

My body is doing just fine. I've started a frame up restoration on the Triumph including adding steering stops to prevent tank slappers in the future.

I just worry about collateral damage. The citizen near by. But then again, if a citizen looks the other way while someone steals a bike, perhaps they deserve it too.

I stopped into CBO the other day and they were avidly checking out the list. Hopefully one lands there.They have quite a collection.

Nice Thomas/Logan. There seems to be a time/space portal between Colorado and Santa Cruz, CA. May you find your way there. Trails highly recommended.

Nice! Be better than a Bot! Bots ride rigid. You should flow like water. Like Bruce.

Reply to Hello 10/24/2016 5:21 PM

Welcome to Vital. I'll check out you're Youtube like and you think about an "Introduce Yourself." Go! And you better not be one of those crazy Bots. Nice, Not Bot. Well done. Subscribed.

Check out the little link at the top, just under the steer tube. The damping is all contained inside the steer tube and is adjustable on the fly from the top. It's shown in the video.

Ugly but effective. When does the DH version come out?

The ultimate chute run.

Just nit picking here, but I always rout the front brake line to the inside of the fork leg to avoid damage.
