 "Can't fathom why Trek went to a 2 year frame warranty.  That doesn't sit well."..i believe the taht only applys to the carbon frames and 5 years on swing arms on FS bikes they had a lot of problems with swing arm breakage on the carbon.

The goose has been pretty good to me and really have had only one person hate on it openly and I just reminded him I seen what car he drove in the lot...I like the 29er aspect ..I want hydraulic brakes better wheels and better forks than Im currently and I have thought of just upgrading but not too sure its worth the money plus the Goose is pretty heavy..Love all the comments and the amount of rides some of you guys own is bordering on mental..LOL>> :o

Well Im currently on a 29er mongoose walmart bike and I know everyones opinion on that but its been good to me with very small failures anyway I definately will stay with the 29er and am thinking about FS but the more I look the pricier it gets so dont know about that yet was thinkin I should keep it under $2000. :P

cant we all just get along ?..If you wanna ride it ride it if you dont dont if its too hard youll learn one way or another ..if you come to something beyond your skill level im sure you know it get off and walk around..maybe if all the trails were closed everyone could sit around on the internet and squabble about it..Peace..Im out

Just because we disagree doesn't mean we're not getting along. A healthy debate is a good thing ;)

So they must be measured from the center line of the 2 holes..thank you for that ...on the other question i wasnt refering to the number of chain rings on the front but as i was looking on ebay for a new crankset alot of them said they would work with 7-8 speed sram and shimano or they would work with 9-10 speed drivetrains that kinda thing.

Tech Bench / Crankset
« on: September 23, 2011, 07:15:19 PM »
Ok toasted my crankset so here's my noob questions..when measuring the arms is it from CTL to CTL of holes or end to end of arm?..and this one may be obvious and i just dont see it but what does it matter how many speeds you have for the crankset?Not sure if that makes sense.

Paul...If people dont play by the rules at Town Run believe me a change of venue will not change the way they act speaking from experience as a New mountain biker I have met some extremely friendly fellow MTBers but have also met many on the trail that think they are in a constant race and that you are in there way or infringing on there territory... The good usually out ways the bad but that is a fact of any society..I applaud all the good you do and for those that are in such a big hurry stop take a drink and enjoy nature..Peace

It's funny how riding a few years can make such a big difference in fitness & endurance.

I remember the first year I started riding, I would have to stop 1/2 way through at town run for a rest under the bridge.

Last year was the most dirt miles I have done in 1 day, at the Breakdown, a hair over 60 miles. Felt good after too I was surprised.

LOL..I know the feeling my first ride was at SWW after reading on here about guys turnin multiple laps there I thought I was gonna die the first trip up the hill. But its gettin better... ;D

Rants and Raves / MTB on 70

Didnt know where to put this so Ill just post it and the admin can do what ever with it...Drivin home yesterday seen the Police picking a mountain bike up on interstate 70 by the airport looked as if it may have fallen off someones bike rack. So if you got to where you were goin and were missin a bike there ya go.
