Anybody interested in trying out my keg ?~?

All air mail it to you and you keep it a few weeks and pass it along.

Maybe 3 or 4 people interested ?~?

I really like the keg in the trails, but i will put on the stockie to have more fun.

The volume shim has found a new home, so sorry it can't go with it.

Please post if your interested and I will do the rest. It can end up with anybody......

Cheers

I've got something that might work better. I found that my stock RP23 was just a little too active. SO, I've upgraded to a '07 BlockShock. Much more efficient pedaling.... It's aspen. Best strength to weight ratio.....

Good point. Actually, I had some fluid seaping from the rebound / propedal controls on my RP23 so I sent it off to Fox for warranty work. I didn't want the rear end hangin on the rear shift cable while it was in the stand so I rigged up that stupid spacer.

Sorry for the hijack......

later,

Nope, hasn't been PUSHED yet. Right now I'm just playing around with different mounting positions, different wood types etc. Once I find the best combination I'll send it off to PUSH and let the experts have their way with it.

OK, I guess. That 2nd surgery really took the snot out of me. I'm feeling the pain quite a bit this time 'round too. But, I'm on some pretty heavy duty pain killers so that helps. I just don't like bein' a medicine head all the time. Been off of work all week and I can really tell that the lack of excersise is taking it's toll on me. On Monday I have a follow up so I'll post the X-rays of the new plate Monday night. I'm using this time do some serious clean-up work on my bike and I finished my "Kinda Retro" ride this morning. My brother in-law is stopping in tomorrow to take it on it's second maden vouyage. It's a pretty neat old/new bike...

Thanks a lot for asking.....

cheers,

Okay, so I just got back from my ride today. I hooked with a group ride and one of dudes had the freakin' KEG on his bike. His bike being a Blur LT. Apparently, he said it was the "Santa Cruz Special Ed. Rp23". I asked him about bottom out, but keep in mind that the Blur LT comes standard with the High Volume Float Rp, he said that while he did bottom it occasionally, it had never been very hard.
