Wasn't the story my mechanic told me, but I'm not really an expert. Why protect your seals/sliders? Am I mixing up stanchion with slider? The area that was worn was really specific

I bought a Mucky Nutz almost because of the name, and found out later it worked like a charm. I wanna boycott this because of the name. Was their no mud to protect your fork from before "Enduro"? What Ever! As for these types of products I think they're great. I've had to replace sliders cause of dirt that got in, and it was probably the least fun I've had spending 300 bucks on my bike.

SRAM Guide RS Brake - Review
Same boat here. My Juicy 7s are still going like 6 years later. My X0s work fine, but I've only had them for a season. I'm interested in these if I get a good deal. If I paid full retail on both, though, I'd go XT

I'm surprised he didn't build some mega wide & burly 29er wheels with 2.4 slicks (at least). That whole set up looks flimsy as hell. Wild man.

I think you'd measure happiness by the level of contentment, satisfaction, health, and prosperity afforded by the majority of citizens. I think government has a huge role to play in maintaining happiness, stability, and civility. Has the hands off small government approach ever been put into practice with any success, or is it just and economists wet dream? I hear the agruement for less government brought up time and again, but I've never seen an example of a country with a small government that wasn't some third world hell hole. Through taxation we have the means to find efficiency in the supply of services. Sure, in some cases the private sector can provide certain services better, but once profit is a motive everything else is secondary. That's why I think medical care, policing, eduction, etc. should never be left in the hands of the private sector, which inevitably means big government. With regards to microsoft, is it possible that there was little regulation of a company and an industry that was virtually non-existing 10 years prior (not being fecitious) And as for the FDA and good ol' Milty, how many deaths would be the result of no government oversight? 18th century England and asian industrial economies give a pretty good idea of what unfettered capitalism looks like. Left to their own devices public companies will do whatever is necessary to maximize profit - it's their imperative. Good debate! Sorry to all the guys who just wanted to talk bikes.

@hamnheez I was trying to play nice about the U.S., but you guys are a perfect example of why less social spending is bad, and more corporate interest represented in government is even worse ("freedome?). We get taxed more in Canada, but you sure as heck won't go into bankruptcy if a relative gets cancer, which sounds like a good idea for poor people. I personally think a country is successful when you measure the happiness of its average citizens, and unfortunately the richest country in the world never seems to top the lists of happiest countries, nor crack the top 10. And as for that government regulation comment, I think if the government regulation wasn't defined by corporate lobby groups, it might actually make live better for Americans. Our government up here seems to be in love with Reaganism, and it terrifies me, cause deregulation is probably the biggest reason for staggering U.S. income inequality. Anyway, I'm glad we all like mountain bikes, and I wish I could ride mine in America a lot more.

I love how this is blossomed into a capitalism vs socialism based on my stupid joke. In all seriousness, though, anyone who has a hate on for socialism should really think twice about their position. Anyone living in a developed "western" society benefits daily from some level of social spending. We all like roads, and laws that are protected, and agencies to make sure our food isn't (totally) toxic, and some level of free medical care... As a Canadian, my country straddles the middle between more socialist countries in Europe, and the less socialist countries further south, and I have to say that from my experience the level of happiness of the average citizen seems to increase with greater social spending as opposed to the inverse. Also, those Nordic folks make some hot chicks. PB for life!

I didn't think there were any rich Swedes. Too busy socializing all their money.
