    bought som formula "the Ones" yesterday and a Root got stuck on my bike!!!!

    LMAO! Sorry its Bobby Root, he and I rode around a bit yesterday up on the hills!
    I let him ride the Jedi while I pedaled his Canyon around. The Canyon is a pretty sweet bike, It really flows. Didnt get alot of time on it or mine, were riding this weekend though and Ill post about the brakes and the Canyon bike as well. BTW Bobby could ride a matchbox car down a hill with style! and wheelie it at 70+
    MPH

    Heres a vid of Bobby a while back.

    Damn that is a nice bike!! It may be common knowledge, but what is that thing connected to the top of your steer tube? I have never seen that before.

    Once in a while its nice to have some stability of the front end like long weekends at resorts/tunnel cold springs in SB etc... It eliminates the micro twitching and big hit reflexes of your arms allowing them to go longer.
    Hence its easeir to ride resort all day and be ready the next morning to ride again if your arms arent dead or fatigued.
    Most of the time its off, but its there when we go to the mountain bike amusment parks!

    Yea, I know what it does. I guess I'm of the opinion that they aren't necessary and don't really do anything beneficial. Of course, your mileage may vary. Nice bike.

    How's that airshock doing dude? Is the initial part of the travel notchy or harsh feeling?

    You ride w/ Root, huh? He's one talented rider. That guy can manual forever.

    coiler - The Hopey is a steering damper, it prevents the steering from moving too fast. For super rough terrain or long days of riding, they can be helpful if you can get used to how it feels. They take the harsh edge off of input to the steering, so your muscles don't have to.

    WIth no weight and a floor bounce it hard as soon as any weights on the bike its butter smooth, I cant drop on the jedi yet as it was heat treated 2 weeks ago and apparently it has to harden still. (crystalize or something like that!)

    Hes got total bike skills, kinda freaky to watch a guy trials ride a DH rig and have that much control over the bike. Im looking forward to this weekend, between the bike and Bobby it should be a great time. Dudes funny!!!!

    Sweet. I haven't really seen many of the new airshocks - I've always hated that sticky feel they have when you first get an airshock to move, hopefully that is not as much of an issue anymore.

    I did'nt ask Lance or Chris about the heat-treat process, from what you state it sounds like the alloy they used calls for air-hardening. Which doesn't completely finish the day you do it, the molecular structure takes a while to "settle down" into the final form (you're absolutely right - crystalize) It will be more brittle right after treatment vs. a few days later. The 2 week stipulation is probably just to be on the safe side of things.
