    Hi Mitch,

    Finely I ride good track

    Cheers

    This looks to be quite a fantastic track M8. You kept up a great pace. I exported your .gpx and then used a website http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/ to convert your gpx file into a kml file for viewing in Google Earth. You can then use GE’s built in flight sim to follow the track up close and personal. Wish I could take it for a spin in real life though 😀

    I’m going to have to go find another even tougher track now 😀

    Hey Mitch,

    It usually takes within a few days to get the GPS set up after you download it, especially since the Administrator is a very busy guy. I have you checked your profile in your "My Account" page to see if your GPS mappings you downloaded have been approved? Try that Mitch.

    You only need three approved GPS datas to get your free Pro Membership.

    Once I’ve submitted 3 Trails how does one go about collecting the membership?

    Hi Mitch_A,

    Thank you for info about Sportypal. I saw your workouts on Sportypal’s web. They are great, you really know to choose the track. I’m prety new in mountain biking and for now I’m just taking the dust near the river :-(.

    Any way I installed Sportypal on my G1, here is my workout:

    I believe we, especially you can contribute to share the interesting trial maps. Yesterday we needed specialized GPS equipment for that, right now just "simple" phones.

    Cheers

    Here in California we may be about broke but at least we got some great trails to choose from out of the deal before the money ran out 😀

    Yes, our devices have reached amazing tech heights in just a ffew short years. I’m looking forward to trying out Android when a version is available for flashing my phone.

    Cheers M8

    i tried getting it on my blackjack 2 and it gives me an error whenever i open it. =(

    The Blackjack 2 has an internal GPS but it is locked down unless you pay your service provider a monthly fee. Unless of course you unlock it yourself 😀 That is beyond the scope of this forum but a google search will turn up all the info you will need.

    Thx Steve.

    I’m happy with the new Bike. The Marzocchi 55RS shocks seem too soft, my 220lbs sitting flat sinks her almost 3 inches. All in all a very solid rig though. The hydraulic brakes are simply fantastic. My brake points have been drastically reduced. I’m still tweaking the shocks but the more I ride the closer I can get to a perfect setup.

    Here is a pic of my Stumpjumper.

    Dude,that bike is freakin awsome.It just screams the roots of mtn. biking,and I cant believe you’ve been riding that thing for 21 years.You need a medal.When I bought my 07′ stumpjumper,one of the biggest reasons I picked it was because the front and rear suspension could be locked out so I can ride it like rigid on the trails and then have some suspension for the downhill stuff so I can have the best of both worlds.I dont even use my suspension on technical sections.I have been planning on building a rigid specific bike but cant quite come up with money just yet.
    You’ll have to review your two bikes with all the details of the differences from your experiences making the change from rigid to full susser.Pretty please????hahaha.

    p.s….Hold onto that bike and sell it,but if you do please let me know before you do.

    I’m keeping her, sorry mate 😀

    Give me some more time riding the Haro and I’ll put together a review for ya.

    Hey Mitch,

    What is your sag?

    If you have 25%-28% sag, then you have the correct spring, then you just need to boost compression. If your sag is higher than stated, get new spring. I think that they only make one spring for this shock, but not quite sure bro.[/quote:3ctez74d]

    Hi Mongoose,

    Getting info on these Marzochi shocks has been difficult to say the least. How would I boost compression? I only have a single adjustment for rebound. Stronger springs I would guess is my only option but I can;t find anything about upgrading the stock springs. Anyone have any other ideas?

    The Fox Van R rear shock works perfectly.

    I think I might get a helmet and go FF . I don’t wear one at all,I know retarted. I think I will go get my head sized tell my parents what one I want and in what size and maybe a Christmas present. I will definatly need one if I get a full suspension bike like I want to and start hucking the big drop at my local trails.

    Dude,one of my helmets I paid $30 for from performance bicycles brand new right off the shelf.Go get one even if your not hucking the big drop or else no one will ride with you.At least any self respecting singletrack.com type people.Were all good spirited people here in mountain bike world but we all wear helmets anytime we ride.

    Great thread fellas!

    I’m looking for the lightest, smallest, least cumbersome bike helmet available. Anyone have a suggestion?

    Steve, what Sprint Cup Team? I race Jr, Almendinger, Skinner and quite a few others online at iRacing. Ever hear of it?

    After 21 years I’ve decided to retire my Specialized Stumpjumper Comp and buy a Full suspension ride.

    Due to availability I’ve decided on a Haro Extreme X6 Comp. So far Im very pleased with it. The transition from a rigid to full suspension ride was a little bit more difficult than I expected but after a few rides the Haro has swayed me.
