Tylers V10 Review Tylers V10 Review
What began as a want and then turned into a need, was me needing to build up a new bike. There is never anything wrong with my previous bikes, I am just a person that requires changes when it comes to my bikes. Simple really, well for me that is-try explaining it to a friend or better yet, a significant other that may not share all your views.

So last fall I began my quest to find a worthy frame and the proper parts to hang off it-this is the tale of how it unfolded and the end results.

I had known of him prior to that for being the guy that was showing up at Mt.7 for Psychosis with a group of buddies out of Whistler to take the money away from the locals. But it was at the races that we started chatting and eventually became friends. I think this may be a trend in how Tyler has met and made a lot of friends over the years.

Hello, my name is: Travis (2 impressions on one fork) Hello, my name is: Travis (2 impressions on one fork)
Next to purchasing an entirely new bike, bolting on some new suspension has got to be the biggest change you can make to your regular routine. And when you think about it there actually is not that many choices when deciding on a new long travel super fork. Unless you get off the beaten path, you really only have four or five names to choose from. Each of these forks brings something a little different to the table. The key is to do your homework before buying. When I was trying to pick a new fork for my own bike I had a hard time finding any sort of info on [L=http://www.answerproducts.com]Manitou’s Travis[/L]. Since I like a bit of mystery I thought I’d give one a go and let everyone know how it performs.
