I'm looking for second hand full blown downhill bikes

Find a nice cheap Summum and you’ll never regret it. That’s what I did. Yes it’s 26” but so f*cking what, it still rides so damn good in the steep & rough stuff that it’s hard to believe that it’s a 2013 model.
I test rode one in andorra I loved it

I need air ride cuz I' a fatty and that drives the price up

Buy an eight ball, get a second job for a week or two, earn an extra couple bands, there’s a brand new bike right there.

Not sure about Europe but I know you can find some real good 26” DH bikes in the states for around 1k.

It won't be drugs that gets me. Probably trying to chop my leg off with a chainsaw again, or running myself into kidney failure again.
Or a bear. Bears will get ya.

Good shit there nomad. Never f*cked with duck but I love it. Should try and cook with it sometime.

Any of y’all got some tips to help with hand numbness on drop bars? Been riding my road bike more while waiting for my mountain bike, primarily ride on the hoods but it doesn’t seem to matter where my hands are placed they’ll eventually go numb quite a bite, sit up shake it off, then comes back in a little. Nothin else bothers me on the bike. Just something that goes away after some more time on the bike? Simple as adjusting some angles? Or just bad fitment and/or parts?

If you know how to saute a steak then you can do a duck breast! It's as simple as instead of sauteing on HIGH you do it on medium.

Sounds like you're pinching that Ulnar nerve that runs along the meat of your palm. Not entirely sure though what the adjustments on the road bike you'd do for that sorry man.

Yea I just never think of cooking duck or see it at the store, and when I do I think of duck, I think of confit. I’ll try it one of these days.

Hmm I’ll try adjusting my bars some more and see it that helps.

Best bet is to try to do meth with it and become friends I guess

Yeah most stores aren't going to carry it unless they are legit butchers I've found. Definitely worth poking around Ashland for some, or if you have any friends who hunt.

There’s some butchers up in Medford at the very least. Don’t have any friends that hunt, wish I did cause I’d love to go hunt too.

Just scored a gently used set of cushcore for $40 Jailbreak Now trying to decide if my DH bike should get CC front and rear or just rear and sell the second one to a friend.

Bloody hell, we can get duck in the supermarket, and my local supermarket is one of the scumiest going.

Have you tried tilting your saddle a degree or two back?
Are you sure your saddle is in the right place in the first place?
More often than not, hand issues are due to the saddle position bringing the weight too far forward.
