No, a boxer....
my lab chases deer. my son's border collie chases... COWS!
It's his herding instinct. Time to round 'em up!!!!!!!!!!
Our beagle chases a better way to get more comfortable.
yup, the collie does exactly that. my lab is also good at the chasing more comfort thing, she's going on 6 now.
and what does KTM want for that fairly generic looking hardtail?
It has a VERY fancy fork.:tb
all the mtn bikes on their website have various rockshox and fox forks. i didn't see this model.
Hmm, a KTM with better service intervals and cheaper tires than mine but the lights are worse.
Who wants to buy some parts and/or a frame/fork so I can buy my buddy's Rivet? I've got some Dura Ace 7700 cranks/bb, a fixie/track/ss specialized crankset/World Class Ti BB with a 42t ring and a 'bash guard' that used to be the matching 52t ring, some XTR (M952) cranks/bb with or without the 110mm adaptor to run cross rings, a Quattro Assi frame/Easton EC90SLX fork/King HS (54.5cm TT), 7703 D/A 'long' cage rear derailleur, etc etc etc. I need to raise $600 by next week.
Have you priced those Schwalbes? I was having a great leafy singletrack ride yesterday when the rear Nobby Nic blew a hole in the sidewall.:eek1 Had to hike the bike out of the woods due to only having one Co2 cartridge in the Camelback. Lesson learned. No more overpriced, paper thin, Schwalbes for me.
I did set a new (low) record though, with a blistering 3.1 mph avg speed while walking the bike back to the parking lot.
Were the NN's the Snakeskin sidewall model? I just put a set of them on my bike, and ride in some rocky stuff. Wondering how long they will last... I've heard the non snakeskin ones are very prone to sidewall tears.
Yep, Snakeskin with Pacestar compound. I bought the bike with them already on it, so I'm glad it wasn't my $160 wasted on the tires. The older guy I bought it from doesn't ride hard and the tires looked newish two weeks ago. The rear developed alot of wear after I put 130 miles on it. Ripped a side knob off last Saturday. They do ride well though. Lots of confidence inspiring grip and I like the feedback.
I don't know about the bike, but here are the forks.
Add: "I need to get a pump", to your lessons learned.
I gave up on inflators, long ago. I've had multiple flats, failed inflations, and rides with others who didn't have their own repair system. I bought a Lezyne. It works great and no more worries of limited air.
OK, that's just stupid money!
Thanks for the tip, but $100 for a pump?:eek1 I'll look into the non carbon model at less than half that price.
Tire boot with $, powerbar wrappers, or a boot kit a Blackburn Mammoth Mtn pump and you're good to go.
One important hint I learned along the way: keep your pump inside your camelbak. Keeps it clean and it lasts a LOT longer. Last pump I bought was roughly a decade ago.
I carry a spare tube, tyvek for sidewalls, co2 and a pump. I hardly ever got flats running tubes. I'll see how long I can go without one running tubeless...
