    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    hummm

    sunday sounds good to me! Todd we have all year for boarding. Either way, I have a question for you all. Last time I was up there I rode Billy's bike around and fell in love with his Shiver - who wouldn't? Well I'm wondering what you all think about these couple of forks. All dual crowns - Shiver, Monster T, Slider +. This is For a Gemini 2000, which alrady has a pretty sweet Breakout + evolve, but I can always dream, and that shiver was SSOOO plush! All 04 forks so can get the closeouts. thanks in advance

    I'm running a 02 Shiver on my V10 and have had a 03 Monster T on my old bighit. Considering its a gemini, I'd put Shivers on it that way its not insanely front end heavy for the frame.

    I'm in!! Just tell me when and where!

    Since working on Sunday, ol' Lundberg gave me Friday off. Not bad, ehh? But I'm still gonna come in through the side door so he doesn't see me....
    I have no idea what I'm talking about...But yeah, that sounds about right.

    I might be in for the build only,but no riding. I damaged my right hand crashing on the small drop and into the tree yesturday and it is really really hurting and swollen today. I may have to make a trip to the Dr. later on if it doesnt mellow out. I will have to let you know later in the week. Was thinking that I may bring my son with me If I can make it out.

    I heard something pop when you hit the tree - I was standing there, but didn't want to ruin the moment for you. You'll have to let us know what you find.

    The land is much prettier now. It inspired me so much that I had to buy a different fork today - I'm upping my travel a whopping 1" - if anyone wants to buy an '03 Firefly 20mm w/ both Ti and firm springs for $300 - let me know.

    Oh - not to hijack the thread but I forgot to mention that the Firefly has only been ridden for 10 weeks (seriously) and only on paved paths with gradual slopes...
