You fucking wankers need to do that shit mid-week.

That ride looks fun, something you could do on a modest XC bike.

Riding the Maze over two days on the mountain bikes next month, with truck support.

Dammit, I'd be all over that if you guys ride tomorrow instead of Sunday. I will be rolling into work as you guys roll downhill. Enjoy, you can't have a bad day on gravity runs....

Frog, somehow missed your reply. Sorry.

Thought I'd respond in the thread even though we chatted today just in case any one else ever chases the same gremlin.

The Rekluse uses the OEM basket and friction plates but provides their own steels and pressure plate. Putting the OEM setup back in, everything looked good for wear and warpage but I'm going to tear into it again tomorrow and double check. Unless I'm just not getting enough throw/piston travel on the the hydraulic side, it has to be on the clutch side of things....

Thanks for BS'ing today, I'll post up what I find.

On a side note, in researching the slave cylinder, it looks like Evoluzione has closed shop in the last few months. Bummer, he had some quality products. Looks like over the pond options for those looking for the clutch slave bling.

12 year old Yamahas do not interest me at all.

I still prefer my big twins.
