    My Bike is Hexed

    So I decided to buy a new bike and let someone else ride it and see if they like it.

    Then everything turned....The bike is so pissed off at me I think it is hexed

    Later that night the hub spins forward and back.......no big deal Hadley stokes me real quick

    Put my bike together and on the first ride I break a spring retaining washer thing (could have been broken already) Blow the rebound too......EFFFFFFFFFF

    Send Shock to Romic.....get the shock back this morning......go for a ride and first jump break my frame.

    So I got to get the frame warrantied

    Do I get the 10 inch gravity

    or

    Stay with the Recoil because it is better metal and a nicer bike 8 3/4 travel

    Oh yeah I am selling a new frame or bike

    I am getting my M-3

    Tough too because I was just leaving for a trip to SLO....so no riding for another week

    2 rides 3 weeks sucks big time

    Damn yo, that sucks! Hope you get that squared away, nothing worse than not being able to ride, let alone going through that crap...maybe your not "suppose" to be out riding the big bike stuff right now?

    Anyhow, Faith is holding up good...I think I'm regretting on selling my 66 rc2x...

    Here's a shot from today, thought I'd rub it in.

    BTW,

    Keep the M3, sell the warranty.


    How's the riding in SLO? I used to surf there when I was stationed in the bay, but never got a chance to ride there???

    SLO is awesome. Unfortunately they shut down Ridge trail in MTdO according to what I head recently.

    Edit: Ridge shutdown turned out to be a bad rumor.

    That's what happens when you let Coldsprings ride your bike.

    I should have told you, this is not the first time this has happened.

    I can relate. I bent the bar on my FR bike, then the freehub body on my XC rig decided that it would rather be a fixie wheel, and stopped turning alltogether. All in the last 3 days.

    I still don't know why Bobo is fixated on an M3?
    His fat @ss requires more beef in my opinion.

    Gravity all the way. Take it from me, you won't be disappointed and you will feel right at home coming from the recoil.

    Yeah, I would defiantely go with the Gravity. That would be a very nice pic, the extra few inches of suspension wouldn't do any harm either.

    Sucks dude. I think my herd retaliated when I lent one of them to a buddy. I loaned my buddy my first SS bike (El cheapo) the next ride the bb on my surly broke so the crank arms moved independant of each other, next ride I am using the bighit to trail ride, go off a small drop and thats when the fork blew up. I was down to trail riding my cross bike, I got the 1x1 back up and running but an still waiting on the 66 for the Bighit.

    WELL NOT EVERYBODY HERE CAN SPEND 2.5K IN A BOUTIQUE FRAME. MAYBE TRAINING AND SKILLZ CAN DO MORE THAN HAVING THE BEST BIKE MONEY CAN BUY.
