This is a pic of our trails (might have seen pics earlier) of a buddy on his new (to him) rm7.
We went to build, but broke our only hammer :( :mad: so we rode and took pics.

We finally figured out how to image to pics together with the burst shot.. the pic we put in was more blurry though so u can see it if u look close. Hope you enjoy!

downhill, can you please email [email protected], its KevinM freerider because he has no way of talking to you.

so far he's had to tighten the rear linkage, thats about it. Does anyone have any veiws on how fast rebound should be for a drop? I was thinking slower, so the pedals dont jam up at you..i could be wrong. Also, shouldnt it be somewhat fast for dh?

Thanks for the replies. here is a few more pics. first one is a really stupid picture when we where building the drop that i found, so i figured i would put it on. The second picture is when I was riding my bike with the new Jr T. in the parking lot of where our trails are.

There is a great article in Mountain Bike Action page 40 about suspension set up. Im no xpert but i tend to set it to when you push down it should rebound almost as fast as you lift up, basicly fallowing you motion.
How do you like your Haro?

nevermind, you dont have to. I think he just wanted to talk to you about some things that went on.

Its really an awesome bike. it has a really good dh and fr feel to it, and it handles them really nicely too, but unlike most others that i have riddin, it doesnt have that "big huge bulky" feeling to it, like i can take this in to town for an urban ride and it really isnt bad at all. the spring could be looser (650 now) but I think i will leave it for urban and freeriding (still pretty plush) and buy a 500# for dh. And for a budget bike, they are very decent.

a buddy of mine has a haro that has a 5th element on it and a drop off tripple and it has a very dh feel to it, not much of an urban machine anymore, but with good suspension they really are nice bikes.

Nice pic. You guys should chip in together and get a 18V cordless drill and cordless circular saw with a few extra battery packs. No more worries about broken hammers. Just remember to wear eye protection and don't cut off any fingers.
we have a 18v milwakuee (sp?) drill and almost everything we have built is screwed together with like 6 inch-7 inch screws but the batteries died in the cold weather and then the hammer broke. Also have a sawzall..cant take it out there though :(

we actualy just brought the tape measure so we could measure how much tree to cut down for the top brace so it wasnt too long and then we measures the top brace exactly 6 feet from the ground so we would know how high to cut the tree before it supporing the other end of the board. It was more a building tool than a "proof" tool.
