    If you're a mod you can "opt out" of the rep system now. I am advocating that everyone be given the same option, but who knows if the higher ups will go for that. I'm just a lowly framebuilding mod.

    On topic: '97/'98 is the cutoff for 1 1/8 vs 1" forks for many brands so it's hard to say for sure what size head tube that is. Either way, a replacement can probably be found if someone is LA is a packrat and kept one in the garage.

    BTW -- not to necro post -- but I'm actually here in Los Alamos finally. Been working here since the the 22nd of Jan.

    I've got to get my butt in gear to shape up a bit -- then the tuff riders and I will meet again!

    9/80 A is best -- because I'm on it...BUT no one seems to work those "real" hours. If I get here at 7, I leave at 5 -- I'm not on the trail at 5. lol. I guess if I were like the general population here I'd be on the trail at 4 getting in at 7...HAHAHAHA

    I was on a 4/10 schedule up there last year, 0630-5:00PM.

    Downside was commuting from ABQ, so my day started at 0350AM and ended when I got home at 7:20PM.

    But hey - every Friday was an off-day... spent sleeping.

    Yeesh! I couldn't imagine commuting from Abq; my friend did that last fall (working only a couple of days a week in between classes at UNM).

    Huh? Schedule B is one of the best in the last 10 years. Coincides with the most holidays for 4 day weekends. I'm 7 - 4:30. Nate, I can't imagine 4 10s from ABQ, all the weekdays are pretty shot. Even 4 10s from SF puts things too late for my taste.
    nix that, livin la vida bandos is a good idea when you're on a Mojo HD

    Yeah, it sucked bad. But I wasn't interested in moving to LA/White Rock/SFe.

    Luckily for me, the project I was working on didn't quite make it to the construction phase, so I picked up an assignement in ABQ.

    This is my current schedule...though I usually get home in Rio Rancho ~630. Monday and Tuesday arent too bad but Wednesday and Thursdays really start to suck and FML if I have to work a Friday.

    Panda- How's the riding going? Getting used to the elevation yet?

    Let's just say I haven't had the best luck. lol. We went riding a couple of weeks ago -- and I rode clipless for the first time on trails -- whoops. lol. Only fell three times in a tiny 3 mile ride, but it felt good to be out.

    Tried riding with the TuffRiders last week - and the weather canceled us...and today a damn snow storm cancelled again. Third time is a charm next week?

    My wife (Sarah) is ROFL right now about that ad - she's a biophysicist and we actually considered living in LA for a while. I just couldn't stomach the idea of moving back to where I grew up...

    To be fair, I think that if anything they are actually underselling the awesomeness of the outdoor recreation in LA.
