Werd. Actually I've got a good friend who runs the bike shop in Puyallup so when he finally sets his date for his wedding, I'll be out there fo shizzle. I recognize at least 50% of the stuff in your photo's from when I lived out there, man do miss riding the PNW...nothing else like in stateside IMO...ebxtreme said:Cheers,
P.S. Reamer.....as Shaheeb pointed out, my floor space is wide open if you don't mind sharing it with my trail doggies - Baker and Shasta.
Are those Staffy Bulls in that last pic?ebxtreme said:Some more aboard the Gran Mal.
1. Rock face on Boogie man (Mt. Seymour)
2. 3rd or 4th hit on Crabapple hits.
3. GLC drop
4. Schleyer rock
5. Reamers sleeping partners Shasta and Baker.
Nope, one's a black lab / Ridgeback mix and the other (facing the camera) is a black lab / Dane mix.cake96861 said:Are those Staffy Bulls in that last pic?
I'm sold on long-travel singlecrowns. I don't do Rampage sized hucks and I'm not a huge guy. The last two singlecrowns (66RC and Travis) feel better than my old Super T did and I don't notice any flex. I think a lot of guys feel like they need a big dual crown fork for doing jumps and drops when the newer SC forks are more than capable. I also like the added benefits of the singlecrown like lighter weight and better turning radius....especially on the longer bike. If you're into doing X-ups, that's a 3rd benefit.Freerider Forever said:Sorry to drag up an old post, but it's better than a new post I suppose. I'm looking at getting a Transition, and the Gran Mal looks pretty sick. I noticed some of you have it built with a single crown. How does that feel? How much does it affect the front end, i.e. ease of pulling up the front end?
