    Suckage

    I was riding-a trail similar to MAC in New Braunfels and got a little too comfortable over this little log jump. Well now my bike is shit and I do not have another. Lesson---Do not get too comfortable and pay attention.

    More people are hurt at Mac due to this comfort level.

    Lesson learned... don't fall asleep at the wheel.

    It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a mojo.

    I would love to go full squish, just can't afford it yet. Two kids in private school you know. This is what I am currently contemplating.

    I are confused , that Orange is a full squish, 4" Orange has always been a proponent of single pivot frames and this is their first offshot to a multi link frame I believe. Bit of a gamble on your part so not sure how good the linkage works as opposed to a more domestically available 4" frame, if you are planning on sticking with a more XCish frame.

    Does it come with matching spandex? Looks like it would crack if you put a beer on the saddle.


    BTW, not of help to you now but I have a Ventanna +4 crown race that most likely would have given you enough clearance from your fork knob taking out your downtube like that when your bars spun in a crash. If not, a +7mm race is also available. Damn hula-hoop wheel frames!

    If you're looking to patch yours up until the funds allow you to buy your dream machine, there's a decent Univega frame on San Antonio craigslist for $35 and it's ORANGE
    If you ain't crashin'
    You ain't goin' fast enough!!!!
