    best vehicle in the world

    A few years ago, I ran into a young ex-computer engineer that cashed in his start up shares just before the tech bubble bust. He had a new "sports mobile" ford van. Full sized van, high 4wd, powerstroke diesel, pop top with full camper stuff. He was at Bunny Flat with some ski buddies and we skied avalanche gulch together.

    I saw him the next year at the Lassen Park Devastated area parking area in the spring with his gorgeous telesweetie skiing California corn. His sports mobile had two fine full suspension bikes on the rack.

    There's a guy that knows how to spend his money!

    Sportsmobile Custom Camper Vans - Your Home Away From Home - even better than my duramax/4wd pop top pickup camper, "Mike's Telemark Hotel".

    I looked around, and you are right, it does exist.

    Guys, please excuse the comments of Pete Fagerlin, aka Krapao Gai - he likes to inject his textual diarrhea on MTBR forums....

To remove its elastomer shish-kebab, unscrew the caps on the top of the fork crown and the entire assembly pops out.

    Did the Inversion forks live up to their lofty expectations? Actually, yes. Every rider in the evaluation was skeptical of the big black fork. Each returned with a similar comment: “These forks work pretty good.” That’s the long and short of Halson Inversion forks: they are good all-around performers, well-suited for full-suspension bikes–and, hey, they come stock with 2.375 inches of travel."
    Wow, far out. Thanks for posting. I owe you some rep, but can't get back to you for a while.

    Who signs rep 90210? I got negged, and it wasn't even my worst stuff.

    I have a pretty wealthy friend with a newer 911 that rides.
    He has a roof rack on it and drives that car everywhere with his bike, regardless of the time of year or the weather. What's even more impressive is that he has no problem throwing his disgusting dirty bike back on on the roof covered in mud when we are done, and then gets his muddy a$$ in his car after a ride without changing his clothes first.
    One time he passed me on the highway on our way to a ride. I have never, and doubt I will ever see a mountain bike travel that fast again

    See this is typically where things goes wrong.

    As soon as the significant other wakes up, it's either to bit$h or copulate, none of that leaves you as well as you were

    I don't know about you, but copulation leaves me better then I was. It's the spending my money that leaves me less well off.

Yakima was the only one that listed Bentley in the car manufacturers list, but they show they have no roof rack fit for it. I guess strapping on a rack to get the bike to the trail head is a better option than not riding.

    To the OP'er, I did not bother reading all the pages of this thread, did it ever occur to you that the owner of the Bentley thinks of it as "just a car"? He would likely not get the point of this stupid thread. Just like some poor person living in the jungle would be wowed by your car.
    Nobody cares...........

    Some 20+ years ago, I used to teach windsurfing on a small lake in West Palm.
    A personal assistant in a station wagon would stop by with the latest hi-tech boards and then proceed to rig some sails. A short time later a couple in their late 40's would arrive in their Bentley or Rolls and immediately get on the water and start sailing.....I'll always remember that as being pretty cool and they were the nicest folks.

    No, nothing at all. It must be the same way I am amused at you for thinking it a big deal someone has a bike rack on their car.
