    Some Pics from Diablo















    SMT: The Shiver is very flexy. I crashed, and the bars were at a different angle to the forks. This is normal? I think about selling the bike, but then I go and ride it. No way in hell am I ever selling it.

    Nice shots. Doesn't looks as muddy as I thought it would be.

    Yeah, I thought it would be like riding through puddles. Not bad at all. The mountain drains the water really well.

    I'm really suprised it wasn't muddier. I don't even see any mud fenders in those shots.

    Great shots. I was there Saturday for a bit. It was cold and snowing. Diabloween is my last go so I hope the weather picks up.

    Since I missed Snowshoe's closing weekend, I'm heading east to Diablo this weekend for one last trip of the season. To be honest, I kinda hope the temps stay cold and it snows a bit. I'd love to get some photos shreddin' in some snow flurries! As long as it stays dry though. No mud for me please. Nice photos btw!
    People wait for me on the way up. I wait for them on the way down.

    Thanks guys! I'll hopefully be up there one more time this year at diabloween. Look for the kid with a shiver, or the kid with the camera.

    yes it is normal....you need to loosen the crown bolts and axle ......move everything strait and then re-tighten....also bleed some air out of fork....those small allens on top of fork...let air out and then finger tight them......so the bike has been very good to you???

    Very very good. Should I tighten them at the top or bottom of the travel? When I let it out, air comes out, but when I compress the fork, I can hear air going back in.

    Also, any idea what size the stem is? I'm looking at some new bars.

    what are you talking about top or bottom of travel and tightening them....if it is the little air bleeder screws then just have the bike sitting and do it then....no need to compress fork....also a good idea to do it when you get at a resort because of higher elavation....and then bleed it during runs (like every five runs)


    not sure on bars......just take to shop
