    I especially like...

    the picture of the Scott hardtail by Heinz Wittman that has a link to Dirt Boy's site for the full specs! That's classic! If that doesn't say cheesy I don't know what does!

    Hope So!

    I never intented to register every domain ending possible. I just find it funny and not that classy that you just used the same name as my site. Also linking bikes for my site is really cheesey and another poster said. I won;t get into name calling with you because you just not worth it. I know enough spanish curese words if I wanted to, but that not the right thing.

    BTW, this does not hurt business at all. Acutally by you linking to my site, I have gotten more hits which lead to more business so thanks!!

    So I am not anugry, just feel like you are a cheeseball and find you actually quite amusing.
    Oh and LIGHT-BIKES.COM is still comes up over any other site for a "light-bikes"site.

    How many members do you have?

    Adios amigo!!

    The size and weight of my camel...

    I'm currently racing camels, in the Afghan lowlands.....and it's taking a lot of time and money, to get my camel below 450 lbs.......(you should see the saddle)....but anyway...I've been toying with creating a website titled www.light-camels.com ... .. I've got approximately 2 other people that indeed have their camel on a diet...and are not only dremeling the saddle - they are shooting holes in it with an AK-47.......trick saddles let me tell you! Would you guys be interested in www.light-camels.com if I do indeed get it up and running?....just looking to see if there would be enough interest in the site before I put the work into it....... Another tip on lightening up your camel is to pull it's teeth out......on average...camel teeth weigh approximately 136g.......so that is nothing to sneeze about.

    Booka Booka!

    I think your logic of reducing the wieght of your camel by shooting it with an AK is flawed. An AK doesn't have the power to fully penetrate a camel, well, maybe a limb, but either way you are adding wieght of copper and lead bullets. Then again, if you think about blood loss, hmm... maybe you'd break even. You'd do much better with a .50 cal. Bigger, cleaner, through holes....

    Have you considered a titanium mouth bit and carbon fiber stirrups?
    Do camels use horseshoes...err, camelshoes? If so, a few grams could be saved by replacing the OE shoes with scandium.

    scandium is not a suitable material for camel shoes: it wears very fast.

    use titanium for camel training and scandium only for sunday camel racing...

    by the way: what´s your camel weight?

    How about Stan's no-camelshoes. The goo is a mess but it provides far better traction and is a great weight savings.

    camelz

    Dudes..... I am NOT actually shooting the camel.....I would never put a bullet in Omar Abdula Mohammed Ahkmed Rawani Zarkawi ....... (Gibson for short) ... Known on the circuit as "the gibbers", "gibbie" .... "Gib" .... and "Al"............I'm taking the the saddle off, and then loading it up. Gib doesn't care for shoes.....so I save big weight over the competition on that one.........we race mostly in sand..and he loves the way it squishes through his toes. I'll send him off in to a land mine field occasionally for ****z and giggles...plus it's good training. He's a pimp camel bros...I'm telling you. Found him standing next to a dead A-rab.....just chilling....waiting for some comp. .... The name on his saddle said "Mr. Pickles" ......... I had to get rid of that.

    well dirt boy, if you spend such amount of money because of me, you´ll make me feel a very important person (aka VIP -LOL- ). But if i´m sincere; just send me a 27.0 extralite the post ultra light and my web will be removed. As you can see, i´m a cheap b*tch. You already have my adress cause i boughtfrom you, don´t you remember?

    now, for everyone else, see the email dirt boy sent to heinz wittman (no comments):

    You can keep oiur site up!

    You have everyright to post anything you wnat on the web, just like anyone in the world can do. If register that domain name, you will have to stick with the lycos siite and would not be able to use the acutal domain: www.light-bikes.es, that is all that it means.

    Sorry, but i just felt it was kinda of cheesey to use the same name as my site. Why not weight-weenies.es or lightbikes.es or something else?

    Maybe it's just me and that's fine. My site and business are doing fine and your site does not really matter!

    Good luck with it!

    Yes you are right and I never intented to...

    register every domain. Right now there are over 45 exstentions right now.
    I just felt it was kinda of a cheap shot using the same name, that's all.

    Yes lnking off my sie and suing my bandwith is wrong IMO and lots of web site feel the same with people using other's bandwith for thier use.

    Yes, Light-Bikes is not TM but i am actuallly think of a copyright very soon if things kkeep going well. Anyways even if I did TM, it would only be for the US and I would never legally gop after someone somewhere on the other side of the world to stop a personal site. I am not nor will ever be a fortune 500 company

    The SPAM thing was just a joke on this one and having fun with him.

    as it seem that you are very informed dirt boy i would like to make you a question?

    any word combination can be registered? i mean; if the words "my car" are registered (usa registered for example) i will not be able to say "my car" in any web? my car, or my house or my bike, or light bike, or light car. You can register what ever you want to, but there are some things that can not be forbidden. i just opened a free website hosting and if i was able to register it, you can´t do anything, cause my website is not made to make money so...

    don´t say you will never legally gop with me because bla bla bla, you can´t do anything because what i did is totally legal and is not my personal opinion it is just the truth.

    if i open an e-mail account called light-bikes@anyserver.com what can you do? nothing cause it´s totally legal. you are the one who put off my bike from your web, so now do not go crying little baby...

    If you don't want someone leeching bandwidth, even in such a minuscule amount as that poor excuse of a website would leech, just block external linking from that site via .htaccess

    You ate showing your ignorance!

    Let me explain this better. If I or anyone registers the name light-bikes.es, you can still use your site, BUT you cannot not get your own hosting account and use the name light-bike.es on the web. Understand? Yes you can keep using your free site, but if someone types in light-bikes.es it will go to thier site not yours. Go it?!

    Yes you can register any combo of words and you can creat that e-mail as you said. It's perfectly legal and happens all the time. Did I ever say you did something illegal? NO!

    What you did was in poor taste for someone who claims to be part of this community, that's it!

    No maybe I will register the domain this weekend. Inlaws who live in Spain can do this for me easily!

    you can use a web translator
    If we go to read foreign magazines and visit foreign webs is just becouse the ones here really sukx...and really hard; is not becouse we prefer speaking english or anything.
    Some spanish magazines copy the news from other foreign magazines,and they even fail translating them properly.Their product reviews are so superficial that you can get much more info just going to have a look at the shop,sometimes they just say what the company comercials say so you already know it, and not to mention the poor use of the lenguage, I wonder sometimes if these guys even went to school. If you ever followed some of the tech step by step articles I have seen sometimes you probably have ended up into a real mess... so I just quit buying them.
    So any attempt to raise a bit that lousy state of the mtb over here is really welcome !!
    By the way, what´s a 12.8 kg doing in a lightbikes web?

    dirtboy, we all know that malol is a huge w*nker

    like few people around, he enjoy nothin' but bothering who ever.
    that is probably giving a sense to his empty life.
    he is ennoying nino, use nearly the same website name as yours.
    he ride a ****y HT and lies on the weight.
    he is a nothin', a piece of merde, a looser.
    he knows very little, he has for example just figured that a 11 needs a smaller lockring than a 12...
    he is nothin'. nothin' but a waste of time for the forum. he is not contributing, he is just wasting his time.
    he is nothin' but a big merde, a caca.
    fall out and break your neck from your cheap bike, or at least break both hands so you'll give us all a long break here.
    you are nothin', not even a joke, just nothin'

    a 12,8kg bike with 5.5 inches or real travel and 5 inches in the fork, with disk brakes, dh rims, dh handlebar and components for using those 5 inches of travel big hits etc etc... that can not be done with a scott strike, so imo 12,8kg is not bad at all. and the frame is new, the owner is a friend who rides with me and he is starting at the weight weenie culture. he has just ordered custom ti bolts for all the bike (like some santa cruz frames with full titanium bolts and oem). so it´s not that bad. and i think a dh world cup bike at 15kg is also duable.

    hehehehe that´s the kind of post i like. any other would say it goes against the rules but i do not care. i like to see how no one ask to moderate that post; herr director!!!!!

    and think you are the one who doesn´t know about lockrings. i´ll explain it to you.

    you can use a 11t lockring with a 11t cog or with a 12t cog.

    but shimano dura ace 12t lockring is different from the 11t cog lockring; the 12 is bigger at diameter.

    so you can use a 11t lockring with a 12t cog, bot not a 12t lockring with a 11t cog cause the chain will touch the lockring, the 12t lockring is just too big. do you understand it now didier? at least nino has knowledge about bikes, he uses the knowledge to earn money but... yo are the one who has lack of knoledge, not me.

    I think you're confusing ARs with AKs... 5.56mm rounds as fired by ARs/M16/M4s are great on people, lousy on anything with solid mass (like camels, doors, trees, etc). 7.62x39mm on the other hand are wonderful for shooting thru solid mass (steel doors, engines, trees, camels, etc). You could ask any of the LAPD that got shot THRU their cars or trees, while seeking cover during the bank robbery where the crooks had full auto AKs. You could also ask anyone who's been on the receiving end of them in vietnam or iraq. American assault rifles tend to be finely tuned instruments for precision shooting while soviet stuff tended to go for the big club approach. Oh sure you use a few more bullets to hit someone, but you can still hit them as they're hiding behind that tree. The guns also tended to be designed for more abuse/less maintenance (go figure with who their designer was).

    Hmm. Extralite 11T lockring will not work with 12T cogs

    The chain rill rub against it. So unless there design is wrong or flawed then you might be wrong. I asked Extralite to start making a 12T compatibale ring if they get more demand.

    The lockiring would not work on a Dura-Ace with a 12T, XTR will a 12T or a SRAM road cassette with a 12T. Wroks fine though on all the cassettes with 11T

    that doesn't make sense... a 11T lockring is smaller diameter than a 12T lockring.

    Well again it does not work for me...

    It will go on and hold the cassette but when you shift to the bottom cog, the chain rubs the ring. Extralite said a 11T ring will only work with a 11T cog not a 12T.

    I have both. I've got an SKS which shoots the 7.62 x 39, and a Mini-14, which shoots the 5.56mm round. I've found the higher velocity 5.56 to punch clean holes in 3/8" thick mild steel plate. The 7.62 put much larger diameter craters (look way cool!) in it. But, that doesn't in any way relate to soft tissue. I just don't think either round has enough umf to pass clean through the carcass of a camel. A .308 FMJ, hmm, not that would be a test.....
