    Whistler pass options

    There is a whole world of riding outside the bike park! ;) Plus you get three full days in the park as well as the same price as a triple play for additional days. Having said that, myself, wife, and son all had full seasons passes last year....:D

    Evening seasons pass maybe? Usually all the superheroes have broken themselves by afternoon so the park is nice and quiet.

    Avalanche boxxer upgrade kit out! Will fit majority of forks!

    I put one of these in my boxxer last year. I am not a "race boy" by any means and I found the stock setting a bit "harsh" during high speed compresion and too fast rebound with the stock setup. Adjusted the mid valve and HSC by lightening up the shim stack and added a bit more to the rebound...

    300x3 Obtainium Ti owners - measure actual stroke for me?

    I made a spacer out of a mega exo quad bb cup that I pushed the bearing out of and then filed down a bit for my sons bike. Not the most attractive thing out there, but I did it with only a file. I am sure if you spent some time with a lathe it would look great.

    Confused about spring STROKE rating and what I need for a 10.5x3.5 fox shock?

    Shimano Zee brakes - crappy factory bleed

    I've used (gasp) Safeway branded mineral oil in my gen 1 saints and now my Zees. No ill effects as of yet (7 years on the gen 1 saints). I would rather use the shimano stuff but I am a tightwad Scotsman.
