    Crappy bikes and even worse riders...

    Just a quick note to thank Lance and JD for dragging me along on a few laps in there local DH area. Of course, I was the foreigner trying to keep up to the local boys, so it was hard work for the first couple of rips.

    Unfortunately, they're all so fast that I didn't get any picutres. So on the way back to Fruita, I stopped by Target and noticed that some family had just bought these cheap department store bikes there. As you can see, Target is definitely a little more high end than Wal-Mart..

    <br>

    <br>

    My busy schedule of trying to ride my FR/DH bike on the Fruita XC trails followed by drinking lots of alcohol afterwards meant that I didn't get a chance to hook up with Lance again for another week. However, Megan and I did bump into him on Horse Theif Bench.

    <br>

    <br>

    Yes, believe it or not, he does ride XC but in his defence, he just about launched off the edge of the bench enterance ramp so I think that qualifies for free riding

    <br>

    <br>

    In all seriousness, thanks for a great introduction to your local trails! More pictures from my trip once I get the rest of them resized down from 8Mb to something a little more reasonable.

    I picked up the red bike in Target next to the Huffys. We found the silver bikes next to the Murrays, down the next aisle.

    J/K of course!

    Ya, the Red V-tach is mine - I like it a lot! The F1 with the fancy NYCFR (R.I.P.) pedals is Lance's, and the F1 with the black and silver inverted forks and hookworm (!!) rear tire is JD's.

    If you have specific questions about the V-tach, you can reach me here:
    http://www.knollybikes.com/contact.html

    If you have questions about the F1, I'm sure the brothers wouldn't mind if you contacted them here:

    Cheers!

    Maybe I'm blind but I don't see any shifters on either of the Canfield bikes. Are they single-speeds???

    Yea there both Single Speeds. JD's bike has a Imperial 28 front ring with a grind chain and JD made tensioner. I'm just running a 105, killed it last weekend after 2 years running it with no problems. JD has this special relationship with the hookworm, he refuses to swap it when he's on dirt. He put it on for Bartlet Wash slickrock. PIMP

    NYC Freeride is not dead, maybe switching to a new name though. And yes there the best pedals I've ever owned. Now if I could get that stem... OH BABY! Did you see the matching PIMP caps?

    It's a anti theft device. Suckas keep steeling my tie downs! There is three lengths that serve as an upright (as shown) stacked upside down for 3-5 bikes and the longest for a full truck 5-8 bikes.
    BM is some fun riding hu! Get out here and ride with us!

    YO check out my first post!

    The DHR on my bike is one of two and there really is no problems at this point. I'm sorry to keep you guys hanging but I can't let you have it till it's reliable for a good period of time. I want it to be perfect as I'm sure you will expect.

    The DHR fork

    Just a quick note for those that asked questions regarding the WB DHR fork. Yes, it has been in development for almost a year now and it is about 98% ready. We hope to be delivering on existing orders in July, now that the final bugs have been identified.

    What is it? 180mm of travel in a dual crown platform that weighs under six pounds. That's all I'll say for now...

    So true! The pedals don't care if it's sticky rubber, moto boots or bloody toes!

    Hope I don't look this tired after riding your trails! J/K Your welcome to stay and ride any time Noel.

    Ha ha!

    Ya, that was after almost 6 hours of XC riding on the big bike. Megan and I hit one last loop of Horse theif bench at the end of the day...

    I'm such a great "on camera" person too

    Just rode the V-tach in the Test of Metal XC race last weekend - that was gruelling. Megan, of course, looks as happy as ever
    Nothing can stop that girl. a couple of years ago she severed her achilies tendon - as soon as she had a cast on, she was riding her bike. Crazy.

    Hopefully we'll see you guys up here later on this summer!
