140mm or up out back or just go HT and fook rear travel. I rode 115mm out back for one season. It was fun but you don’t realize how much you huck shit until your under 140mm out back. Thwack Thwack Thwack on ever ride.

And I’m not talking about VJ’s flapping.

XB hates to say it but he kind of mostly agreed with you on all of this. Hardtails are great when your 25.

Heard from a legit source the other day.. That the Big S is dropping a whole new platform of capable E-Bike in the near near future, sub 40 lbs, Super Capable.

Kinda sux, but it's happening.

the motor and battery will have to be pretty small. The bike will most likely have xc parts as well to get at that weight. Good bike to bang laps at Kal Park.

Lol, nice... New Enduro is the bike of Vernon... 170mm is required for when the schteeps get chausty and the your whole ride is going bad quickly.

40 lbs total possible for E, with the standard flexy 36 fork...

How’s the fat biking bro’s?

Is it true I need 170mm + fork to ride vernon trails in the summer?

Probably gonna need to upgrade if that’s the case.

The answer to the upgrade question is always... Yes.

Rumours are just that. I got a severance package handed to me at the end of September. Haven’t earned a dollar since then. They’re will definitely be nothing new for me to ride if employers don’t start calling by the time the snow melts.
Hell, I might be asking the new resort owners for a trail crew summer job if things don’t start coming around soon.

Too much shutteling in the work vehicle?

Jokes aside, best of luck on the hunt. There are lots of interesting opertunites out there. I often lament that Pursuing them isn’t worth the risk when you are already employed.

Lemons and lemonade kinda shit.

Thanks man.
No issues with my performance or car. Lol
New management overloads were told to cut costs in Canada and territories were eliminated in smaller markets. One on the island, me in the interior, one in Alberta, a few in the Maritimes and a hand full of people from the head office. I've made it through every "restructuring" and 2 parent company acquisitions since 2008. I guess it was just my time to become to expensive to keep. Why keep paying a 12 year employees the dollars when we can eliminate positions and dump accounts onto someones plate doubling their workload. I actually feel bad for those who didn't get a package and have to deal with the new workload/management. Good luck to them.
Always remember kids... The closer you get to the top the cooperate ladder the closer you get to the door.

Anyway, enough of that.
Let's get back to bitchin' about how we can't get Propain Bikes imported into Canada. Instead we are forced to keep buying the same old Rocky's, Norco's and American brands cuz no more import bikes allowed.
Let's play a game. If you could eliminate one brand of bike currently available for purchase in Canada to bring a foreign one in which one would it be?
See ya GT or Diamondback. You had your BMX glory days in the 80's, time to go. Razz
