    Step right up! The GPX is right between the erasers and the pin wheels, above the crazy wirr straws and below the stuffed orange unicorns...

    I love mine now that I’ve had some seat time, it handles, stops, goes great IMG_6660.jpg
    and the suspension works well for my riding, I’m impressed, I’ve had my share of used bike issues not buying new, wheel bearings, a front brake line, stripped threads in the bottom shock mount that I had to heli-coil, but all in all, one expects some issues with a used bike. I’m not put off by it at all. IMG_6659.jpg

    Shock spring weights, I saved almost a pound and a half with my new spring more suited for my weight

    When I'm in the mountains, in the middle of nowhere and I have issues with a brand new bike that may leave me stranded. I consider that a major problem. On a brand new bike when fuel is pouring out of the overflow tube and I find a large piece of debris in the carb. I consider that a major problem. When a weld is bad and causing an exhaust leak and spewing oil all over the engine. I consider that a major problem. I also didn't get a tool kit or jet kit shipped with my bike. Even though I have had to do the repair work myself, GPX has been very good addressing the issues I've had. And I would still highly recommend buying one of their bikes to anyone. If you people don't consider any of those issues major, I really don't give a fuck.

    Aye we must have forgotten to use the dry humor typeface.

    I hope you understand that any ribbing you received was genuinely done in the spirit of lighthearted mischief, not malice.

    It's no different than joining a new team, new school, or new workplace.

    One thing I can promise you: if you are ever stuck, your brethren will work tirelessly with you to help you solve your issue. @Navin already gave you some important info regarding how to deal with pieces that are bolted to your subframe (like that pesky stinger pipe)

    Take a minute to review things broughammer; even amongst some gentle teasing, he still had your back

    Thankfully Paliden sold hers... I felt like if she complained about something stupid one more time, I'd pull my hair out.

    Anyone have a GPX in the Maryland area? One of my riding buds sent me a picture of a GPX in the back of a red Ford Ranger on I-70 in Frederick MD

    I believe somewhere back in this thread a Maryland rider said he plated one. Very tempting. But I still don't trust our central Maryland MVA's to let one though. Maybe if I went over the bridge to Easton......

    I’ll let you know soon enough, I bought a 2019 used, I’m waiting for the title in the mail, I’m going to try MVA first and see if they will plate it. If not, I guess VT will be my back up

    Hopefully you know a friendly inspection shop. I really do drive over the bridge to Easton for that.

    Any pictures of that Husky Tall you modified? Mine finally came after being lost in the USPS for three weeks going from Tom's River NJ to central Maryland

    When I compare the two seats, the mounting bolt hole is farther back on the Husky seat, I took my Drexel and flattened out a larger area on the subframe and then re- drilled the bolt hole

    Mine "fit" too, the trimming I did was to preserve the original bolt hole location in the subframe. I felt it was more secure that way, and I swap back to the original GPX seat for different rides.
