  1. "Fun" times for "Sea-scooby"

    Off-Topic
    When I was first injured I joke that we should just cut it off. Looking back it might have been the better option! Unless something miraculous happens at Physical Therapy in the next 2 weeks I will have a 3rd surgery in the beginning of October to free up the scar tissue and tendon. It just...

    I got some pix! The green "beads" are the on the ends of the pins. Yesterday the stiches were pulled and a cast was put on. I will have the cast and pins for 3 more weeks. tumor came back as benign. They believe it started out as a left over piece or cartilage from my growth plate.

    What a crazy year so far! My car broke down, my brand new very expensive bike got stolen, my oldest daughter got really sick, and now I have a broken hand! I was out mountain biking and I clipped a stumpy with my left hand. Pretty common thing when trail riding and i kept going but the pain got...

    the new ensolite is sticky backed so it would be easy to apply. that wasnt the case when i did my install. Not sure how much it would help, but it couldnt hurt!

  9. 2008+ STI seat facts/info, and install in an 05 FXT

    Interior and Electronics
    I used the stock forester base because it was the easiest method. I didnt move anything over other than the cushion. My 05 does not have the seat sensor either so I didnt have bother with any of that. I used standard width zipties. They are plenty strong!

    Skip the spare tire "bowl". It is already a double walled and lined area and adding a little mass to it wont do much to lower the resonate frequency. What you want to do is light tap a panel and if you get a "ping" mat it up. If you get more of a "thud" leave it for last.

    I'd highly recommend trying a 29er hardtail. I love riding mine on trails like the one you posted above. They roll over stuff better and maintain their speed really nice. The larger wheels also take the edge off the ride. It's not full suspension soft, but it is s step up from a 26" hardtail...

    A lot of it depends on height, but most my buddies and i run between 720mm and 750mm bars on our regular trail bikes. We all pretty much ride 6" travel bikes too. We do have a lot of tight wooded trails so anything wider would cause issues. I have a few buddies in Colorado that run 760-780s...
