 Have you though of replacing your fork oil with antifreeze? xaxa Doesn't your suspension get slower in the cold weather? I haven't tested my boxxer in the snow, but to do that i have to wait for another month Smile

 If you have very heavy oils like 12w, they are too slow in cold. Some ppl changes their oils to lighter ones. I drove my Boxxer with stock oils last winter and it worked good.

 there enough trails there to make a bike trip viable?

i know it wont be as big as morzine etc, but i want to combine a trip to finland with biking, and Himos seems perfect.
  • + 0
 Himos is not open yet. It will open some time during season '08 as if I have understood correctly. Maybe you should register to www.ridefree.fi and ask about making trip to Finland. It's Finland's biggest MTB forum. There you will get right answers. Wink

 sick vidoe man, do you have studded tires for that??
  • + 0
 Actually we have self-made screw tires. Much longer studs than on any factory made tire.
  • + 0
 sick, that's what i thought, when you put the studs though the nobs, then put in a dead tube
  • + 2
 i just thought about it, what if you fall off and you get a nail up your ass? are you just f*cked?
  • + 2
 Yep. That's the risk u have to take.
I got my no-fear's pants shredded by my screw tires. Big Grin

  • + 2
 That video was shot last winter. We don't have winter all year around. It's normal skiing resort.
  • + 0
 ya obviously lol..what i meant was..what ski place is this? and they run the lift for dh even in the winter?
  • + 0
 It's Laajavuori in central Finland. We had a deal with the company and we can use lifts. We have our own trails in forest there, that we maintain. Unfortunetly we aren't allowed to ride in ski slopes.
