    HAHAHA.. Not really.. I am short. It is a 3" suspension lift and 34" tires!

    maybe is the bumpers and what look to be rock sliders that make it look taller, and does it have cut out wheel wells on it

  • in reply to: McGyver type trail repair. #85651

    thats awsome

  • in reply to: Indian Creek Attempt #85756

    looks like a good work out, what is the suspension set up on the Range, what size tires do you have on it? looks like a pretty good sized rig with you bike leaned up to it

    Wow! Fully rigid. Thats got to hurt the next day. Im sore the next day on my hardtail. Got to give you props for that. But I guess fully rigid is all they had back in the day. Glad I missed out on that. LOL. 😆

    The only day I was sore was the day I took out my nuts on the top tube. I hit a tree root that got uncovered after about a week of rain, bent my fork back about an inch on one side and an inch and a half on the otherside, unhooked the front brake so it wouldn’t rub and rode out of the woods back to my place. I wouldn’t go crazy just 3-4 foot drops but the olf Fisher rode like a champ.

  • in reply to: Which MTB for me ? #85380

    Find a Cross Country bike, will be tough but better suited for what you plan on doing

  • in reply to: mtb Music #85349

    Lincon Park Meteora
    Metallica ReLoad, Ride The Lightning, The Black Album
    Disturbed 10,000 Fits

    Those are the cd I listen to, I use my Ipod, some times I don’t listen to anything

  • in reply to: Hardtail limitations #84424

    I freerode a full rigid all last summer, loved it, teaches you how to read the trails better

  • in reply to: Skips Sometimes When I Crank #85295

    a temparary fix is to file the teeth so that they are normal shaped

    welcome to singletracks

  • in reply to: Skips Sometimes When I Crank #85292

    possibly your new gears

  • in reply to: Twist Shifters #85030

    coming from someone who has use both TRIGGER ALL THE WAY my old fisher(24") that i had in middle school was a grip shift and i did not like them, always out of adjustment for some reason and shifting when pedaling really hard sucked and with my shifters on my current bike (Shimano XTS) I can fly through the gears almost as fast and there is no accidental shifting which out ways any possitive because shifting under power will tear up a $5000 bike like it will a $75 wallyworld special, its just not a good thing ever.

  • in reply to: Skips Sometimes When I Crank #85289

    my bmx bike did this and i looked at the flywheel and rear sprocket, come to fine out my fly wheel had worn a little so the teeth were esensially holding the chain on a tooth, took a file and got them smoothed back out untill i got my 44t oddyssey 4340 aluminum flywheel, just a thought

    Just had a great idea,I dont know if you would want to do a whole wheel build but that would be cool,or a wheel truing procedure along with maintenance of the wheel itlself to keep it rolling straight and tru.

    good idea
