2017 Fall/Winter Gear Guide - 7 Men's Kits Tested
Layer cheap Wally World fleece tops with a $7 eBay mesh backed vest and you are good to go. I've been wearing the fleece buffalo plaid Wrangler button tops for years. For everything from biking, to trail work, to skiing. Shorts - Still digging my ancient, indestructible, Endura Humvee 3/4 length shorts. I will cry if they ever die. Even in light fleece in freezing temps I come out of the woods soaked with sweat, and fleece is way more breathable than even the best Gortex. Pick your poison - damp from snow and drizzle or stew in your own sweat.

Fox Factory Float CTD 7.875" x 2" (200mm x 51mm) Excellent working condition the last time I rode it - over a year ago. Has had routine service. Last time was done by Suspension Experts - full rebuild. From my now defunct Santa Cruz Tallboy LTc 135mm frame. Last time I rode the shock it was functioning perfectly. It has been a flawless, reliable damper. I've not ridden it for about a year and it has sat in a box in my garage, so I suspect its good to go, but the shock is being sold as is. Bushings are very good. Rebound and compression knobs all in good shape and functional. Might be interested in a 50mm stem to offset the cost. 31.8mm

Almost every un-popular new standard that has come out has at least offered a slight improvement in performance... except this one !!! 35mm bars... what a joke.

The Tuesday Tune Ep 19: Rebound Damping - Video
Thanks V. Is it just me or when setting rebound it feels like increasing the damping a click at a time does almost nothing, then, bingo - the correct amount of rebound damping hits. Another odd thing is that when I get to the point of correct rebound, especially on a fork, I can hear just the right amount of "wheezing" coming from the oil flowing through the damper. What about this.... Fellow riders and I bicker about rebound settings often. I think they are way underdamped. I point out that running 4 clicks of rebound from full open (range is say 0-20) when they are tipping the scales at over 200# and running correct sag they will be way under damped. I would think that most shocks mid-point, rider weight-wise is maybe 160-170#, and in that case you should be running your dampers close to mid point, all other things equal, on the average track?

Don't Punch the Baby - Opinion
Hey V, So true !!! "... you envision parenting as this grand, nurturing journey where you march hand in hand with your little angel towards enlightenment and self-realization. Ultimately, as a parent, I’ve spent a lot of time just trying to convince the kids to stop Krazy Gluing their body parts together." As positive as I try to be, most of my parenting comes down to "No, stop, don't..." repeat. E bikes. Great alternative to other motorized vehicles, like cars. Motors and electronics have permeated almost every inch of our landscape. Is it too much to set aside a small part where only by the strength of the human heart one can tread?
