Sounds like you should just rent. Yer going to be pissed if you lug that thing all the way there and end up renting anyway.
no, I wont rent a bike up there.zaefod said:Sounds like you should just rent. Yer going to be pissed if you lug that thing all the way there and end up renting anyway.
a 90mm stance static. but I could have a stance kingpin (its basically a sherman slider now) or I could just use the 130mm drop off comp (wouldent stress my frame as much)coma13 said:what fork do you have on the p2?
you said it.SHIVER ME TIMBERS said:screw it all.......buy a T-2 hitch rack and get a new DH bike.......just charge it all and have fun
oh yeah sell the IBEX
I dont have tons of money like everyone else on this site. I have to deal with what I have, the Ibex was a f*** of a deal for what I got it for. I only have one rack...i'm trying to make what I have ...workSHIVER ME TIMBERS said:screw it all.......buy a T-2 hitch rack and get a new DH bike.......just charge it all and have fun

the top tube is a bar that goes from your headtube to your seat.....it locks in place to fit most bike rackshardtailll said:you could get a tube top for like 20$ at your local bike shop
I always say never rent.....always ride what you are comfortable with when riding harder trailsErr said:There are some pretty decent bikes to rent at Whistler. RMX's, Norco's, etc. But then you're going to spend a $100/day for the rental, depending on how long you're going to be there maybe you could just fix your own bike. There's something to be said for being on your own bike that you're comfortable on up there. Ask me how I picked up 14 stitches in my head on a rental bike there last summer...
Hurray for stereotypes! Next time I find bundles of money around my house or in my bank account, I'll make sure to contact you!todd_freeride said:I dont have tons of money like everyone else on this site.
Sure you can ride your P2 up there. The drawback is that it will beat you up and you will not get nearly as much riding in as if you were riding an FS. The trails on the lower mountain are pretty hashed out with braking bumps and the upper thrails are naturally rough. I rode my Imperial up there once and in small doses its fun but as I'm mid-30's I don't recover as fast as the kids do. Can you rent a different rack?todd_freeride said:...gah, this sucks .... should I just take the P.2 up there and attempt to ride it down whistler ? I'm a freaking smooth rider. and I could put my drop off comp 130mm on there if I needed more travel ... the Ibex would be sick up there, just afraid not enough travel and that I might not get stopped in time.
F-That Rentals suck. I'd rather ride my own rig, that a) I like b) is set up for me, my weight, my riding style, and my preferance, and c) I dont have to spend 3 days getting used to it, building confidence, and trust in the new rental bike that's been thrashed all summer, is usually spec'd with midgrade to poor components, and creates a pinch on my pocket book and time that could be better spent someplace else.maineride said:If your going to whister, why not enjoy the riding and rent a bike suited for the terrian. Your Ibex is more of a trail, all mountain ride rather than a Freeride or DH specific bike. Also, stop being a cheap ass. Whats the big deal spending 200-300 hundred for the best riding of your life. Anyways, how are you going to feel when your ibex devlops a few "minor" cracks.
