TID BIT: Found a great chainstay protective cover, walmart in the plumbing isle. It's 3/4" wide stretchy, black, no adhesive bonds to itself and extremely pliable and remains stuck. Cost was $5 and its enough to do 2 to 3 bikes. Handles abuse and looks awesome. A buddys been running it now for over 4 yeqars and hasn't replaced it yet. ?: Need tire recomendations for wintery weather in the N.W., some snow, rainy days, dry days with crappy trails and some street riding. Studs are not an option, I currently run Nevegal, blue groove and have maxxis minions 40d slow reazay. Oh yeah post your tid bits and cheap tricks to make life easier in the DH/FR arena. Wether it be repair, accessories, bike maintenance and or just plain weird tips and tricks for your bike.
