    Getting in early on Volume 3.
    It's been too hot to ride in my neck of the wood's. I haven't rode for three weeks. Finally a break in the heat this past weekend. But luck would have it that I had other thing's more pressing. This week for sure if the cool 78-,80°ish weather holds.

    Progress: Just because we have always done it that way is no reason to keep doing it that way.

    Something about behinds or stinky britches or poo always gets That Girl to show up. Tones too, although now he even falls for muffin tops.

    Tone's could have been bitten by one of the 7-out-of-10 of the world's most venomous snakes.... all of which live there. Or he coulda been bit by one of those funnelweb spiders, imagine getting killed by a friggin' spider bite!

    Then there's Box Jellyfish season...they are fatally venomous too. And them little purple octopii, and of course salt water crocs, which kill quite a few Aussie.

    Stuff like that, it's no wonder that I'm really not too concerned about an occasional rattler. At least it's just a hemotoxin....
    I mean, lookit what happened to Steve Irwin. Crikey.

    Oh....and with a nod to the OP, I just got my official 'geriatric' mtb...a 29'er.

    Oh, I figured my demand would only throw gasoline into the fire. Let it burn!!!!

    This is already looking to be the best start of the three bike threads so far.

    Its probably the shock valving that makes it feel less than "efficient". The linkage is probably designed to work best in the middle ring, whereas I big ring it as much as possible. I actually am biased towards hard tails so its kind of apples and oranges. Just the same , my Trance X was a better platform for me. I still regret selling it. Don't get me wrong, this is a very nice bike, just maybe not for me.

    Something about the whole rear shock linkage looks kind of inefficient. Have you tried riding it with chaps?

    Although it is a rad bike, I've watched my buddy closely on his as he pushed the cranks hard uphill on the long grinds we have here. It's not as efficient in climbing (it bobs a bit) as the DW Link bikes are. I'm prolly gonna get beat up by the SC guys for saying that.

    D$, you push hard in the big ring? You must be Godzilla strong, otherwise you'd be cross chaining your drive train to death. Oh, that's right, you're a roadie. Nevermind.

    On a side note, I think it would ride better with a 2 ring crank set.
