    new ride

    My bottlerocket is out of commission. Riding it constantly and at Diablo has taken its toll and the BR is down for some much needed maintainance. So I decided to build up a bigger bike for Diablo and such.



    I got a chance to take her out, and hit some jumps today. This thing is amazing. I have it set in minimum travel, and it feels bottomless! I never thought a big bike could jump this good!

    I'm only joking silly buns. Just kind of looks like one of those Gel seat covers that women tend to like....

    yeah, I'm not really into those minimalist skinny seats. I prefer a little padding just in case.

    the purple animals are temporary. I have some white ones on the way. They are the best cheap pedals!

    True, i've got a set of white Hamiltons myself on my rig.

    but, dude. you NEED to set that thing for max travel, get a SuperMonsterT on it, and huck it like Bender. End of Story.

    Anyway here's my Rig with the white pedals.
    ..I'd LOVE a white seat to finish the job, but I decided that it's a seat and the one I have on there works fine so I'd spend no more than $30 (shipped) on a new white one.
    Anyone seen anything?

    I'll weigh it tonight. I don't think it's as heavy as it looks. It feels pretty light anyway.

    yeah, I don't like the way it is either but. I had problems with it before. When my frame gets near the end of it's travel, the back of the seat gets so low it actually grinds on the back tire and makes a terrible noise (BEEERRRT!)

    so, that's the only solution I saw.

    thanks.
