    I think we should all now bow are heads and accept that our mighty brethren, a one "WCH"
    may have slightly cased this landing...

    and seeing how timbers photo skills may be 'sub par'... this could have actually been worse than the image suggests!

    Oh the agony...

    WCH indeed cased it a litlle but in his defense WCH was going slow to show swoop how to hit it...he went back again and cleaned it

    Nah.... that is a good size drop...about 7 feet. It is hard to get in line to do the drop so it makes it more sketchy...it is near Lake Castaic

    My shock problem hasn't been totally sorted out but I can now ride atleast. I just can't have it in the longest shock setting. It was way nice just needed to adjust the suspension a little bit so I wouldn't do backflips of off the doubles. It never felt like I bottomed the rear suspension even though I probably did.

    My frameset was $1100. That recoil is SMT's he loves it.

    Recoil is mine. I really like the bike a lot...coming from a Big Hit with almost the same set up. The bike pedals easier. Just a sweet ride. My suspension is very plush with the Romic.

    The only problem i have is I keeping bending the bolt where the shock mounts to the linkage, but I may have fixed the problem by buying a grade 5 bolt. We will see in a few weeks.

    you bought a whimpier bolt to replace the original one with......

    Grade 8
    bolt capability in tension (failure) = 150,000 lbs / in2 x .03349 in2 = 5024 lbs minimum

    Grade 5 bolt capability in tension (failure) = 120,000 lbs / in2 x .03349 in2 = 4019 lbs minimum

    from a 4x4 hardware manufacturer site......

    For critical load-bearing applications, we would argue the case for Grade 8 hardware over Grade 5 any day. Grade 8 hardware is made from medium carbon alloy steel, tempered and yellow zinc plated. Best suited for applications where high strength and hardness is required.

    SAE standards for steel bolts

    The SAE has established a sequence of grades from 0 to 8 for steel bolts, on the basis of the metal from which the bolt is made and the manner of manufacture. Available grades run from 2 to 8, with 8 the strongest. Higher grade numbers almost always mean increased strength (an exception is that some grade 6 bolts are stronger than grade 7). The heads of steel bolts are marked to identify their grade.

    OK,
    WCH I am tired of seeing all these photos of fun stuff to ride that isn't dj's. I'm borrowing a big bike and you will show me all the cool freehucking spots. I'll call you when the bike is ready.

    i sideloaded my BB while tighting up my cranks and then proceeded to strip the threads on my crankpuller trying to loosen them up, stupid cromo cranks are so hard to remove the arms. so for the time being my little bike is out of comission.......

    That sucks. If you need a crank puller I have one. I have a large sledge hammer also. I will have a big bike ready shortly, and need to hit something other than dirt jumps...

    I had that problem one of my frames. I fixed it by buying a half inch drill.
