Bikes up for sale. It's official!

What’s the replacement plan?

Trying to get on a levo. And build a slack 27.5 hard tail around my new fork

I have the same idea, sell Ripmo, go ebike for my solo up down rides and build a low budget short travel bike for pedalling.

I won't know if I'm coming to FF but am prepping for it. Old blue is running like new. Replaced the cat, replaced plug wires and found number one and two wires we switched! What a huge difference to have all 8 pistons firing lol.
Valve covers are leaking but oil is cheap and repair time is limited.
I'm hoping for a few more days of this glourious rain(till Thursday) and I'll be shredding with you old bastards.
Now back to the garage to puff the DH bike together, fork was in for full service and I picked up a bunch of bearing for the old pos.

So my daughter is hard core into rugby now.....and I went and watched her coaches play.

All hail glorious violence!

Absolutely ridiculous and hard core at the same time.

I wanna play!

44 deg here today so no riding.

Swim.
Beer.
Repeat.

Yes I am liking them very much.
Mega grip, better than a Minnion DHF but... they are definitely slower rolling. Trade off.

Thanks BBLB. It turned out very nice but nowhere near the 36-37lbs I was hoping for. She's pushing 39 lbs. To many bulky bits used off my old builds. WTB i35 rims, Atlas cranks, 9 speed drivetrain,etc.
As shit brakes or wears out I will replace with newer/lighter goods.

The only other thing is I should have went XL frame, cockpit feels a little tight for me. Not awful but I'm used to long enduro bike reaches. Probably going to pick up a seatpost with back sweep to make it just a little more roomy.
