i must be lucky then. from the sound of all you guys there are only a few people that had no leaky psylo's, well at least after the initial bedding in. mine leaked a bit at the start but stopped after about a weeks riding.
ugly? you could call it a piece of artwork (but that depends on the eye of the beholder of course) i reckon it looks fully sic and if i have the money next year (not likely but meh) i'll buy one. Specialized make good bikes so you could expect all that complicated stuff not to break too easily.
has anyone noticed that you seem to get addicted to that rush you get when you pull off something you've never done before? the more you do it the less it seems to come so you go bigger to try to get that 'rush' again. must be the best natural drug in the world. especially when combined with an mtb.
my dream bike (DHer)
-that new specialized Big Hit frame
-Aireal Industries hubs, headset and chainguide (cause they're Aussie and they rock)
-mavic 321's and DT double butted spokes
-pro taper bars with an azonic shorty stem
-XT 8in disc brakes
-raceface cranks, shimano...
don't test your mum hey, just cause they don't seem to be able to do anything other than wait on you hand and foot (not that mine does) doesn't mean they can't do anything. watch out or you'll get stung real bad one day when your mum does beat you at something.
btw i wish my dad could ride a...
i don't think this has much relevance (to mtb's) but i saw something that said it is something like 2 or 3 bikes are sold worldwide for every car that people buy. that was up on 1.5 a few years ago. something must be growing. maybe TV is helping to spread the word bikes are cool
how do all you guys get around that small thing you feel before you try something big that you've never done before? an ideas on how to get over that 'i'm going to die off this' feeling? i'm fine on the ground, its just jumps and the height you can get that scares me
