    EG Spring Fever Stokage!

    6 of us just got back from our annual spring trip to southwest Utah to once again ride the awesome 'chunk trails' in St. George and Hurricane. Here's some EG Stoke to get you in the mood for spring!

    Awesome pics!! Love the silver EG.

    I've always wanted to ride St. George. I think you guys make some of those sections look easier than they really are. Nice work!

    We did get some great pics out there!

    Some of those pictures actually show how technical those sections are. Great pics!

    Great pics of the EG in action. Anybody notice how much the rear suspension is compressed on Titusbro's bike (the one with the Fox180) when it really shouldnt be?

    Chuck-o-rama Wednesday night
    Texas Roadhouse on Thursday night
    Kiln Fired Pizza on Friday night
    Chuck-o-rama again Saturday night

    All of our rear shocks were abnormally compressed....


    Wasea04, some of our crew thought they saw you at Zion Cycles last Saturday. Possible?

    I run a FULL 35% sag and the o-ring is at the bottom of the shaft on the biggest hits, but it never gets pushed off. The rear suspension seems 'bottomless'.

    My wife and I rode Guacamole for the first time Saturday, then headed over to Zion Cycles to have my friends Bill, Fred, and Regina do a little work on my SuMo. I spied someone with an EG, but wasn't able to approach them to inquire further. By the way to answer Craigstr's question about the suspension being compressed, that move he's hitting is kind of a G-out where you come off a chunky rock face at nearly full tilt to avoid being thrown, and then you've got to pop up and over a few rock outcroppings at the bottom; it's an intense section that gets better the faster you go!

    Great pics! Still hoping of getting an EG some day. What elbow pads are you using by the way? The gray one? How's it during hot weather?

    Race Face Rally DH. They tend to run small, so if you have big forearms, get the largest size possible. They are a bit warm but IMHO, you can't buy better protection for your forearms and elbows. They are exactly like the older Roach Pads that I used/abused for 4 years.

    I gave my old Roach pads to a friend and upgraded to these newer ones.

    kinda stupid question but what direction do you run your Kenda Nevegal tires on the rear?
    Rotating with the arrow they have on the side or the opposite way for more square edge bit going up hill?

    I'm getting ready to set mine up tubeless so if opposite is better for Arizona up hills, then that's the way I want to run mine.

    I run them with the directional arrow. Never even tried them in the opposite direction...

    Great tire, IMO, for SoMo and rock crawling. I'm running a 2.5 folding Stick-E on the front and a 2.35 DH wire Stick-E on the rear. I run the wire beaded tire on the rear because I kept getting pinch flats with the folding tires. Running both tubeless with homebrew latex mixture.

    That was me. Once we pulled up we went in to grab some smoothies while we waited for the other guys to show up.
