    Ahh, I see. I like it.

    If you can make it out to Cali I'll show you around.

    Also, my cousin owns a house in Park City. I went out for a few days last year. If I make it out there again this season I will drop you a line.

    Mostly Heavenly b/c that is where I work (and it is right up the street).

    Sierra has a better park and Kirkwood is the bomb ass ish on a pow day.

    I didn't make it up to Northstar last winter.

    True that!

    When I rode The Canyons last year it was a powder day so I sponged off this random dude I met in the gondola.

    What camera did you use for those shots?

    I'm not sure what type of camera it is. I think it is an old Fiji but I'm not sure.

    NOT-E,

    If I'm not mistaken, your bike looks like either a Fisher Hi-fi, or a Fat Possum. Am I correct?

    I take it you mostly just ride XC trails? No downhill, freeriding or dirt jumping type stuff?


    What is a Chain Tensioner Sounds like what I need.
    This happens after the following
    -In air
    -braking(in air)
    -spining pedals backward(in air)
    -Landing causing the suspension to compress.
    -coming to and abrupt stop cuz the derailer has now wraped completely around the wheel.
    A chain tensioner would definitely help, but you can also take a few links out of your chain to tighten it up.
    You can also find a medium or short cage derailleur. Those allow for shorter, tighter chains but the shifting isn't quite as buttery as a long cage d.

    I know this is bad form but who needs form when charging down the hill trying to air off every little thing.
    You need plenty of form and technique to launch off the 8 foot drop behind me in this picture. You do not want to crash going off this drop.
    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    Some people go through their whole lives wondering if they ever made a difference in the world. Marines don't have that problem.

    It's a cannodale profit. Sram commponents.

    I don't know? There definitely downhill but I do alot of climbing. I do alot of jumping on the way down. I used to have a XC bike, It didn't last to long before it was toast. I ride to hard.

    I was thinking that might be a good solution. But I thought taking a link out would mess the gearing or tenssion up.

    HA HA very agreed. I like long distance rides up hill. I get just carless enough I don't fly off the trail. If I were doing something like that I would definitely be on my A game.

    Cool pic BTW

    Hey my front forks have about had it would you rebuild or just replace with better newer ones.

    Do you like your current fork? Does it work for what you want to do with it? If the answers are yes, just rebuild it with new internals.

    If you wanna upgrade than go for it, but burly freeride forks are mighty spendy these days.

    If you decide to get a new fork, be careful with compatability. I don't know about your model, but in the past Cannondale has done weird, propriety stuff with their head tubes.
