    Don't laugh too hard that was the hot set up for BMX in the 70's. I can remember when they were in every bike shop (Ihate when I have to date myself like that). One of my childhood friends had a huffy version of that with a mono shock like this. Talk about pedal bob. I think we finally destroyed that bike going big. Even Webco, Redline, and Kawasaki got in on that game. Some of them sell for big bucks now because the were so crappy nobody kept them, lol. The joke is now on all the guys that threw them in the trash pile.

    The lesson to be learned here? Keep all those RockShox products, boys, they may one day be worth something.

    very windy...and I am only digging later on at 3

    it seams the Rocky Mountain crew doesn't care about trails in general. They built a road gap blantant in front of a known illegal trail. This road gap couldn't be touched throughout the weekend because of hikers. If a ranger sees there will be a lot of problems.

    We will be taking it down today and covering up all the holes they made to dig it. Very bantant and obvious...looks very bad. I can't believe they even thought of building it where they did and didn't take it down afterwards.

    No props for Rocky Mountain...they suck

    go Team Yamaha!

    is that really yours, SHIVER? my buddy Kevin Donahue had one of those in 1975, then he "traded it in" for a YZ250 in 1976.

    weren't they either yellow or red?

    the forks were crazy cool feeling - better than those coil boingers on Schwinn Krate front ends, more fluid than the silly dampers on the Schwinn Krate saddle struts. of course I was only a wee 14 year old with a KX90 to compare it against.
