    Do you and your wife plan to ride together??

    You bought a 6" travel freeride bike and she got a short travel XC bike.

    thank you all for the kind comments. My wife is loving her bike - she even tried to huck a small double yesterday...it was pretty amusing but I gotta love her enthusiasm!

    btw is it ok for me to hang the bike like this? I was not sure if I would get air back up towards the levers in the lines? Thanks

    your fat possum X0 sounds really nice, i have a kingfisher 1 and luv it, why they stopped building them is beyond me. Your bike should be fine hung like that, check the forks for any oil leakage (manitous can be prone to that) when storing bikes in odd positions apart from that no worries. As for your worries about air in lines, i assume your talking about the brakes, right? Dont worry brake lines like that use hydraulic fluid and are airtight, air in your brake lines is a bad thing youll be able to tell if theres air in there as your brakes will feel squidgy and innefective instead of sharp, the lever will be able to move a lot closer to the bar as a result. shouldnt be a problem on a new bike. If you think there is air in there get it to an LBS to get the brakes bled or if your brave try it yourself (not recommended).
