    Where to camp at Snowshoe?

    thanks, i think we are going to camp off mine road. primitive camping should be allowed in wildlife management areas so i think its a safe bet!

    Where to camp at Snowshoe?

    I'm going up to snowshoe for three days at the end of the month with a few friends from the shop. We can't afford a hotel so we are looking for a nearby area to camp. I heard you can't camp at silver creek anymore so that's a bummer. Anyone know a good spot?

    What are you wearing on your elbows?

    the 7ipd and ixs pads look really nice. i can't really seem to find any feedback from anyone though on them. I hate to buy expensive pads without hearing some reviews. I wonder why they aren't more popular.

    Roco Air on 2012 Demo 8?

    i really wouldn't recommend an air shock on a demo 8. the leverage ratio on the demos is already super high. i think a coil would be better.

    help!! with a weridish problem.

    if your tire is folding then you need more pressure in your tires. it is doing no good for traction when the tread is deformed like that. I think the issue here is weight transfer. You really want the front end as low as you can get it. it is only too low if you can't get your weight back...

    Sag OK, bottom out easy on drop to flat.

    Sag OK, bottom out easy on drop to flat.

    no need to worry about rebound for this. how does your bike handle fast, repeated hits at high speed? does it run through it's travel quickly? what about dips and just bouncing on the bike? if it's blowing through its travel too much on fast, repeated hits, then turn up the high speed...
