    LMAO! I got rearended wed. night so Ill not be riding for a bit. Guy hit the stinger on the hitch so it was direct to frame I was looking out the window actually leaning out trying to yell at someone that there tire was herniated and should be looked at.
    Dude slammed right into me and I was on the brakes stopped due to traffic and a red light, took the window pillar to the skull and the back.
    Dizzy, headaches, hearing loss in my left ear, short on breath, back is numb in a patch near last season breakage of it and spasms.
    No breaks in xray so good there and possible bruising of the lung (left) and getting a cat scan now to see if theres blood on the brain or fluid.

    Im anxious to ride the nicolai though, it feels pretty good just sitting on and pedaling around the driveway but EEEHHHH! Cant rail it or jump because of headaches.

    see what happens when you drive a car? you lose all control. on your bike you've only got yourself to blame.

    or this guy!
    This is what a bike hitch does to the front of a van! Bent the hitch 4" up and tweaked the rear of the frame a bit too.
    Lifted the 4runner up (lifted at that with 33s) and moved it 4-5' forward.

    That's a badass Nic BC. Sorry to hear about the accident though, healin vibes~~~~.

    I'm interested to hear your opinion on the differences between the Evolver and the ROCO. IME the Evolver ISX-6 is one of the best air shocks out there when adjusted correctly.

    Its pretty bad @$$, I played with it a bit today and Im impressed with it and the bike....

    Once I get the swelling outa my head Ill get some ride time in. Loss of hearing, nausea, headaches, back spasms, numb patch on back etc... Makes for a intresting time. Got cat scans or possibly a rmi tomorrow...Ill post a ride report after some hard time on it.

    Injuries due to a bike related crash sucks but always seems worth it when compared to something like a car crash. Lucky none of your bikes were loaded up. Good luck with healing up.
    Outta curiosity, is the Nicolai gonna be used for some milage too? Could the Jedi not cover your freeride needs or you plan on having only setup in DH mode? I know you had a 66 up front which wood of helped lean towards more freeride. I was gutted to hear there are no plans for a mini Jedi, I wood of loved some of that rearward travel action but I dont want a full blown DH rig. All my bikes have gotta do some milage.

    Thanks and yeah pretty excited to get feeling better! LMAO

    Its going to probably get dialed for more freeride and the Jedi will remain the DH sled. Its a hard call but Im cosidering dropping the Nicolai down to 6" rear and doing a fox 36 and build it even lighter. Havent decided yet. It will see time, its a good single pivot design which I like anywase.
    They will both serve a purpose, I dont want to ride a bike and come accross something I cant ride then Ill be irritated I didnt bring the big bike. Thats where the Nicolai comes in more FR and I can still slaughter a nasty rutted steep chute or jump and pedal as well.

    I jedi will keep the black/white/red build and the Nic is getting black/white/blue build.

    Does anyone know how the shock shuttle settings affect rear travel/geo? I'd be interested to know how the different holes along the downtube affect geo -- (I know the holes on the swingarm adjust rear travel)

    OK got back from a cat scan and some ?able x-rays at the hospital just now! Im off for atleast 6-8 weeks. My T7 and T8 (spine) have compression fractures in them from the accident! So no updates anytime soon!

    As far as the front holes dont do the travel the adjust the head angle so when you ust the rear to adjust travel you can control the HA as well as this will allow you to run different shock sizes as well! I think its kind of cool, Im impressed.

    I think it was a good idea and they had good intent when they did it but definately fell short. Even when you run it at the highest BB height and "steepest" HA (shuttle all the way back closest to the seattube) my HA was 65 and bb was 13.8. It was 2 holes forward when i got it and the HA was 63 and the BB was 13.3. so the other 6 or 7 holes forward would drop it something stupid like 50 something HA and 11 BB. not very useful but still cool.

    The travel adjust was the cool part

    Bullcrew- you should try it in the 2nd to lowest setting. the bike feels really good at 175 rear travel. thats where i ran it 90% of the time. also having a 66 ata helped mine to feel very versitile. Ran it at whistler and had a blast. It felt like a long travel transition bottlerocket. also when you crank it to 140 you can cruise uphills very well.

    ok enough talking, it is making me miss mine. i had mine at 36 pounds even...

    On a side note my new frame will arrive tomorrow!!!!!??????!!!!!!!
