    You got it.

    Slack HT. Steeper ST. Longer travel front end. I ride a 100mm hardtail singlespeed otherwise so the Nomad just really felt like "cheating" and "dull" in terms of trail-feel.

    The Trans AM with that TALAS was a great choice for me.

    Just bought a second hand Transam for 1000 shipped to me. Can't wait! I ride a 2011 enduro that is all Cadillac 'ed out so it will be a nice change of pace.

    Pike U-turn air 140mm, Transition revolution 32 wheels, Saint drivetrain, Elixir CR brakes.

    Some Cali winter shots & 1.5 headtube detail.

    Added an Easton DH stem and Stylo OCT cranks.

    Up next is adding the Formula brakes I've had sitting around. The problem is, the Hayes Nines that are almost 10 years old have been flawless So it's hard to move to a new brake on a winter focused bike.

    Coming from the blue 2012 color, I felt the same way at first, but the retro color scheme has really grown on me.

    That is quite a cut my friend. I have scars on my leg from my gears as well not as pretty as yours but have scars now.

    Anyways I have a question I need help with. Still running my stock cane creek headset loose caged bearing on my 2010 hardrock build. Running a 2012 rockshox recon solo air set to 5" travel. Suspension leaves a little to be desired as it is only turn key lockout. My question is should. Upgrade to a cane creek s-8, forty series or should I upgrade my fork with a argyle motion control damper with low speed compression dampening and flood gate adjustment. Just not sure how much abuse stock headset will take

    Hey shreddin22, I'm not the best guy to be asking about full suspension bikes yet. I'm in the market to buy one currently but if you need help about the best E.R.'s in the D.C. Metro area, hit me up

    Yeah Millfox, I've reviewed the wreck in my head over and over and still can't figure out how I managed to do this much damage either. I, too, have had plenty of chain ring tat's but nothing like this. 25 stitches outside, 18 inside and because it was so deep it ended up getting infected so I spent 4 days in the hospital and almost 9k in MEDICAL BILLS! Of course, I'm one of the millions of uninsured so I'll be paying on this long after the bike is gone. Oh well, the price you pay to do the things you love. Just gotta write it off...and keep riding!

    If your headset isnt ticking or indexing then it's working as well as a pricier headset.

    The Argyle Moco will make a huge difference. Be sure to check the levels of oil in the damper when you replace the cartridge.

    For now if you're having issues with the fork blowing through it's travel you can play around with adding oil on top of the air piston to make the fork more progressive. RS has moved away from oil on the spring side of their forks but it's still a good trick to make a linear feeling air fork more progressive. Not a replacement for good damping but something that could help in the meantime if you're on a budget.

    I don't know what a "rockring" is but I'm guessing it would have helped prevent gashing my leg to the bone It's funny, I just checked my other bikes and my cheap-o GT hybrid is the only one that does have a "rockring" on it and that bike is only used for commuter/road riding so it's a waste. None of the "mountain" bikes I've seen have a rockring on them. The only good thing about this accident it made me get off my ass and finally go buy a helmet. I've been riding for over 30 years (20 hardcore) and I kept telling my family/friends I had never really gotten hurt riding and I would get a helmet.....eventually. Well, eventually is here with a vengeance and even though I hate helmets, I really hate being a drain bramaged idiot more (although my girlfriend doubts there would be much difference even if I got in an accident w/out a helmet) Be safe d.n.s.and happy trails to you.

    I just did a fork service to extend it from 100mm to 120mm. And changed the fork fluid viscosity to a 10 weight instead of 5 weight. 127ml in the damper side. I think I will go with the moco upgrade and worry about the headset after that. Those are the only 2 other things my bike needs and I am all done buying stuff

    I figured the argyle is the damper to use as it offers adjustment. And the argyle is the only other fork that has steel upper tubes. I have heard I can't use the dampers from the aluminum rockshox

    Drop Ship Pimp2

    Haven't been on here for a while, see the threads changed title see the lighterweight rides cropping up. And a springer

    To balance out karma and the lighter things, dug out some of my Atomlab Pimp2, granted it's a bit more downhill than All Mountain in this set up, i will find the geared photos from racing Fort William (they made us ride up so thats All Mountain)

    Anyway, a blind race run, none of us knew what was ahead (apart from locals) i built up expecting to roll off the heli and straight down the steeper boulder face of Glencoe mountain to meet up with the downhill racetrack lower down. I went for steep riding and mech ripping rocks, so burly will survive intact.

    Glencoe is close to Fort William in Scotland, it's shorter than the WC track but more technical and more of a mech ripper.

    Anyway, a blind race run, none of us knew what was ahead (apart from locals) i built up expecting to roll off the heli and straight down the steeper boulder face of Glencoe mountain to meet up with the downhill racetrack lower down. I went for steep riding and mech ripping rocks, so burly will survive intact.

    Glencoe is close to Fort William in Scotland, it's shorter than the WC track but more technical and more of a mech ripper.
