    Turning a Minion DHR II into tubless: help a brother out?

    Before my 823's starting leaking air out of the nipple inserts I used to always just mount up the wheel/s and just ride around on the road, field, or whatever you have by your house for a couple minutes and it never failed to seal.

    southeast photo thread

    The so called "waterfall" drop I guess it was called back in the day seemed easy peasy last year when I hit up sugar for the weekend. It seemed like the takeoff was refined and the sketchy lander filled in with either dirt or rocks.

    Beech schedule this weekend

    Nothing sucks worse than Black or white outfits for pictures. I guess I'll be out shooting the DS since the lift is closing early. Sure am gonna miss having a nice long prime lens though. Never really had a chance to shoot with a super wide angle zoom before though; plus a general purpose zoom...

    Beech Mountain Race Dates 2012

    Im saving the 3 dollar processing from bikereg so I can just give it straight to Beech instead of some online company. Hopefully every little bit counts to getting something going.

    Beech schedule this weekend

    I hear ya on that. but then if people don't care about the DH lift access that are racing slalom, why keep the people that prefer DH from riding? *on second thought its probably a lot about manpower and being able to marshal the DH track and dual slalom at the same time. If I had the...

    Beech schedule this weekend

    I agree about 50/50. I mean yeah you can get 4-5 runs in an hour there, but I think with news of a bikepark sort of raises expectations in some ways. What if the race schedule reflects the bike park schedule. I wouldn't come out regularly if my only chance to ride was from 9AM-1pm. I feel...

    Beech schedule this weekend

    Atleast for me, considering it's half as far away as snowshoe, with camping and cheap food nearby. And the price is about half of what it costs to enter a race at snowshoe, it's not bad. I'd rather they just make the entry fee a little bit more and stay open all day though. I mean now adays $45...

    Sugar this weekend?

    Not that I frequent sugar frequently, but last year i spent a weekend riding the lift at sugar and was surprised how eroded it was compared to when it was first prepared fir the nationals like 2-3 years before. most everything seemeed to be allright but the section under the lift was sooo eroded...

    Beech DH 2012??

    Is it just me or does that announcement sound like they are opening every weekend starting in June. I know I heard from Chris the thinking was to open for select weekends but that announcement doesn't specifically say they are only going to open for such and such weekend, just that they are...

    SKF seals for Boxxer?

    So I got some of the new Fox SKF seals (32MM) that came in. I put them in a 2008 boxxer team. they do in fact work but I can't give any opinion of them since all I did was ride around on the road so far. There seems to be a slight noticeable reduction in stiction but expect them to break in a...

    How Clueless are you?

    You answered 26 out of 33 correctly — 78.79 % I guess I'm better off than most teachers, somehow? my only history class ended before any of the dates in the questionnaire(late 1800's i think). Incorrect Answers Question: The phrase that in America there should be a “wall of separation”...

    US National Champs course

    Thanks for posting that.. Just noticed the "news" post linking to that, obscured with the twitter feed, after you posted it and i went looking for it. I would think that should be some of the main information on the main page. I mean registration costs would seem to matter more to me than say...

    Beech Nationals Schedule of Events

    I would be all for it if I actually had 5 dollars. Normally I would have plenty of extra financial aid money left to spend but thankfully NC decided to cut that:weee: Now I'll just have to listen to my mom grumble about random extra fees:rant:
