    The New Transition

    I put up a poll a few weeks ago and one of the options was for me to get a Marzocchi 4x WC and some Hayes brake pads. Well the fork showed up and I got some pads!

    Nice array of bikes. How do you like those Stepdown pedals?
    The more I drink, the smarter you get.

    That's good stuff Matt!

    The older I get, the faster I was.

    Man, you're really letting the Faith go to heck. A wash and a polish would go a long way...
    Nice 4x bike, btw. We'll have to swap bikes fer a bit sometime.

    I was wondering if anyone would notice that They're not holding, so I'm going to have to put regular tubes in them.

    That's a custom painted Giant Faith. And the Double is my first 4X bike so I can't give too much feedback yet. Others who have ridden it for a lap or two have said they really liked it, good geometry and a solid feel.

    I love them, pretty light, good price and very grippy.

    If I had the money for a bike of that nature, the Double with a 4X is exactly what it'd be. Fine choice.
    A trail that’s too difficult wouldn’t exist because it’d never be used. But, trails can exist that’re too difficult for you.

    If you didn't spend so much time and money on those bikes, you could so something about your fence! J/K

    So is the '08 more adjustable than the previous 4x? If not, then I think the Pike is still a better choice. My sx is my trailbike, but wouldn't be if I couldn't easily make the fork plush (and 140mm travel) some of the time.

    That's my neighbor's fence! And he's a nice guy!

    Actually you should see the one behind our garage, I don't think it qualifies for a fence anymore

    What's the point, they only get dirty again.

    I clicked on your blog, those Zumbis sure do look nice. I'm waiting for Todd to get his, so it will be sprung closer to my weight than Dan's last summer and I can give it a good ride.

    Dan's and Todd's should be coming on the next shipment....I'm pretty sure Dan said in May.
