    Sag is a pretty common term for mechanics, surely you have to set one up for your bike

    When I change my shock on my car(s) of different brands the Mech always set up sag for me, so if Jeep mechanics would use the term sag to explain worn out suspension then what term do they use for sag or neg travel set up.

    It's very difficult to show you the light or guide you to the right direction that's potentially cheaper and one that would allow you to enjoy the sport more. It only made sense given the fact that you know so little about things in general, ride it as it were or buy a new or used bike in your budget.

    I've read many crazy DIY threads here on MTBR but I have to say I've never, ever believe in someone as little as I believe in your ability to be successful.

    For about $7, plus tax, you could be on the trails to-night. Best part is your color options are practically endless. Forget welding,bro. Deck screws are the new way.
    Wow, i just read the whole thread while at the toilet! I love the wooden bike.

    Hutch, FTW!!!!!

    Rep forthcoming when I get to a PC.

    OP - what kind of mech are you that you still aren't done after 6 days? It's not like you're extruding and hydroforming the tubing yourself or anything

    two options

    1- send all the needed parts my way and I'll have it done by noon tomorrow
    or
    2- have patience til i buy and order parts then I'll assemble the bike

    honestly..


    ps. I'm painting the rear triangle as well..

    Could have built a real bike by now from a real frame with the money that's going into this.

    I just noticed the" currently active users viewing ".
    It's like vultures hovering, waiting for a meal.


    I'd paint it flat black, and weld some short tube
    on to hold sparklers, and it needs a horn, the kind
    you squeeze with the rubber ball at the back.

    That's probably why this feature it is not anymore.

    You blink around here and you miss 300 posts about a bike build, I think. If we put this kind of energy into farming, we would rid world hunger.
