Side Note
I heard Wet-n-Wild so like 40,000 season passes and the parks capacity is only 2500! If this is true there is going to be a lot of pissed of people! Good luck standing inline waiting for people to leave!

80$ an hour is a pretty fair rate. That's the exact mentality why a diy shop would never work. Everyone thinks they can just do it in their garage for cheaper. I always charge people more when they come back to me to fix something they fucked up after complaining about my price.

Spend 3k on suspension and want it installed for 20$

We cannot afford for anyone to assume they have already done all they can.

[span style='font-size: 12pt;']This is preliminary notification of a plan we need to execute, unfortunately over a holiday weekend, to resist the first major gun control legislation to have passed a house of the Nevada legislature in our history.
I am asking each of you to be part of a core working group, and giveing you a heads up on where we're going, because each of you can play a key part in what may be one of our most important victories of this session.

As I'm sure all of you know, [span style='color: red;']SB221[/span] passed the Senate on Wednesday afternoon on a party line vote.
It is ostensibly a bill to tighten up the ability for mentally unstable individuals to obtain firearms, but includes Universal Background Checks for all transfers, including private party, with severe penalties for violators, including loss of 2nd Amendment rights.
Even the Oboma Justice Department has officially stated that universal background checks cannot work as intended wthourt universal registration, so if [span style='color: red;']SB221[/span] becomes law universal registration [span style='text-decoration: underline;']WILL[/span] be next.

This bill will be heard in Assembly Judiciary sometime next week - it had it's first reading on the Assembly floor and has been assigned to the[span style='font-weight: bold;'] Assembly Judiciary Committee.[/span]
No meeting date has yet been scheduled. We expect it to pass out of this committee, and to then pass the Liberal / Democrat dominated Assembly sometime later in the week.
Monday is possible, Tuesday is likely, by Wednesday is almost a certainty.
I will post the date, time, and room as soon as it is known.

[span style='color: blue;'][span style='font-weight: bold;'] We can stop this bill with a Sandoval veto,[/span][/span] but to guarantee that we need to organize the public support necessary to:

[span style='font-weight: bold;']Insure that the bill passes the committee and the full Assembly on a party line vote
Insure that the Governor has all the support and political cover he needs to veto the bill.
The opposition will use the same mass shootings and photos of child victims to appeal to the public's emotion that they used elsewhere, and we must counter that. [/span]

The strategy has three parts:

1. Publicize the situation, and generate contacts to Assemblymen urging a "No" vote.
If you have done so before do it again, if this is your first time, NOW is the time!

2. Provide a strong presence and testimony at the hearing, making it clear that the public opposes this bill.
This is critical to meet objective #2 above.
We need EVERYONE to show up this time, we need to overwhelm the anti's with our numbers, we have to impress Governor Sandoval with our presence so that he may point to [span style='text-decoration: underline;']us[/span] as the reason for his veto!

3. Generate as many contacts as possible to the Governor as soon as the bill passes urging him to veto SB221.
Please repost to other forums you may be a member of, any social media groups you know, friends, relatives, any supporters you can reach.

NELIS site to submit your opinion on SB221, https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/77th2013/A/
This a good place to make a statement, but at this late date contacting your Assemblyman directly, preferably IN PERSON if possible, will be better.

Here is a link to locate your representatives if you do not know who they are, http://mapserve1.leg.state.nv.us/whoRU/

I can do it myself; I have done it myself.

I have two build threads because I keep changing suspensions. haha

It would go a lot faster with a lift and air tools.
That's all I'm getting at.

I've got an old, rigid Trek 852 that I haven't ridden in a looooooong time. Right now I need the hours and miles on my road bike. I will soon need to start pre-planning support for my longer rides so maybe we can all meet up at some paved point in the future.

Jinxed myself.

Went to torque everything down and then I realized the threads on my ball joints are all chunky and stripped.
And somehow the threads on my lowering arm ball joints got fucked up too.

Ordering parts tonight and hopefully I can get it done this week.

Thanks to Chris, RedTaco, for lending a hand.
