    I like the Giant STP for street and just about anything hardtail for climbing. 27.5″ tires and about 70 degree head angle. And of course you know the formula of how many bikes you need right?

    n + 1 = H where H is how many bikes you need and N is how many bikes you already have.

    in reply to: What do you think of car bike racks? #186701

    When I don’t just put the bike in the back of the pick up I use a tray type hitch rack for a couple of reasons. I don’t like taking the front wheel off my bike all the time and I don’t have the energy after a ride to throw it up on top. I bought a Curt rack; half the price and very well built. Shop around for the best price.  It has a pivot point so when I use it on the car or where I might have to get in the back of the truck one pin and it folds out of the way, bikes and all, for easy access.  If I put it on the back of the trailer where it doesn’t need to tilt out of the way I remove that and it fits right on the 2″ receiver.

    When securing the bike, where I have a real worry it might get stolen, I use two cable locks.  One I use to go through the tires and the frame and one through the frame and around the rack.  Probably pretty much useless with cable cutters around but I feel better that way.  And double security makes the insurance people happier.

    I think it is just as much fun as riding. Yeah, call us crazy but that is what I think.  If I could I would spend half my time riding and the other half building but right now time is the issue.  I remember a build out on Feeder Line and I was thinking that I would never be able to ride this corner I am building. Now I can ride right thru and that feeling is so fine.   One of the best feelings in the world.  In my opinion of course.

    If it were me, I would let Fox service your shock. The way I see it is let the pros do it and better the devil you know then the devil you don’t know.
