    I want to mod the Bike holder to fit 4 snowboards on it. It would be the coolest wing ever. All the Honda's would be jealous

    Nice bike!



    ...the car's not too bad either...

    Sideskirts could use some paint, so just do it at the same time as your bumpers then.

    Nice!

    edit - Your the one that was asking about the silver surrounds on your fogs right? I think i remember responding to that. Looks pretty good like that.

    That reminds me. On the way down the hill my derailer got sucked into the wheel and busted the crap out of it. It's the second time it's happened. This time I was able to ride the bike down though. Still

    Do you have a chain tensioner? Maybe you need a better one. Also, make sure your derailleur hanger is aligned properly when you intall the new one. (I assume this incident busted up the installed one)

    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.

    I know this is bad form but who needs form when charging down the hill trying to air off every little thing.

    Oh yeah the intalled one is goners

    A do-hickey much like this.

    The reason your derailleur gets caught in your wheel is because the chain is bouncing all over the place when the going gets rough. A chain tensioner (guide) basically takes up the excess slack in the chain so it isn't flopping around causing problems.

    EDIT: Also, this tool will make sure your derailleur is straight up and down. Otherwise that can contribute to its catching on the spokes. Have a shop do that (they should automitically when they install the new hanger) as the tool is expensive and you need to know how to use it.

    That's why I like my singlespeed MTB I'm just riding singletrack trails though, no crazy downhill stuff. Sucks about your derailer though. Definitely check out (and probably replace) the derailer hanger, too.

    Yeah that sounds like what I need. The chain did flop all over the place. You must have been a bike tech at some point. I would have ha shop do it last time this happened but they wanted the bike for a week I did the replacement myself. It was strait forward.

    Any good shop is gonna be backed up. See if you can make an appointment.

    That's why you need the DAG-1.
