    Cool-blue Rhythm Turner 06 model rear link change

    It seemed that 06 rear link system of 5-Spot, Flux, even Nitros(from proto)... changed.
    Former rear axle was on a seat stay but 06 model has axle on chain stay.
    So it became faux system from four bar system.
    It look almost same but it's quite different system.

    Any body who know the reason?
    To lower bending stress in seat stay during braking?
    Or to have more stiff lateral stiffiness with single pivot?

    This is a joke, right? First post?

    Tony, did your PR guy leave the computer on again when he left the room? Did you break the agreement with the entire board of directors and start posting again?

    Colorado Front Range forum has been interesting lately ... I'm still waiting to find out what PT has done for Boulder area mountain biking. It's like having a "to be continued ..." ending on the season ender of your favorite sitcom. I just can't wait to find out how it turns out.

    True; Boulder is afraid that it's endearing and delicate prairie dog population might get stressed out if people were to actually recreate on the public lands that the citizens bought with their tax dollars.
    I usually try to avoid running over all animals that might find their way out onto the road, but I have not a caring bone in my body for those bubonic plague carrying rats.

    City of Boulder banned riding on any interesting trails on city lands long before they found rodent love. I used to ride there before the original west of town ban by the city council. I'm afraid you'll have to blame politics of the 1980s rather than those cuddly little critters.

    I love the heated energy of the Boulder area bike debates. Around here we are still lucky in that we have few conflicts among trail users. Of course, we still have a rather small density of humans and our biggest conflict for mtb riding is a rather short riding season.

    True, the recreation that the rodents are interfering with is childrens field sports. The cuddly little balls of B. plague are burrowing into the soccer/baseball fields, Once discovered, said field becomes a "natural habitat", and the kids can't play there anymore. All the while our tax dollars maintain the rodent habitat.
    Our good city council is also looking to keep folks out of the precious "open space" that is also paid with by tax dollars. They are looking to eliminate hiking and climbing in some places in the flatirons.
    Makes me want to move to Idaho, buy some property, and become some sort of quasi cult figure/criminal.

    I'm sorry, the northern Rockies have filled their quota of cult figure/criminals. You'll have to pick something else if you move north.
