    Why anodize ti? It's already extremely corrosion resistant. Some ultra fine scotch brite for brushed or aluminum polish for glossy will restore the uniform look, just don't get any chlorine or chlorinated stuff on titanium... Or you could just go ride it.

I counted 10 Tacoma’s at the trail head with 4 of them shuttling up the fire road. I’ll be doing that next time around. That climb got me. This was at Bass lake ca, trail 007.

    I think e-bikes are an awesome way for handicapped and elderly riders to still enjoy trails built for motorized vehicles. They're also great for commuting and hauling groceries.

    I guess I'm just woke like that. :devil:

    not enough.
    I'd agree with you. I have a really cheap e-bike for commuting and for quick grocery runs to the store literally a mile away. I wouldn't dare take it on the trails because it's too high powered, it's too heavy, and I definitely prefer my actual mountain bike for riding. e-bike mtb's make sense for elderly or medical conditions...but if you're a healthy young person and I see you, best know that I am 1000% judging you and hating on you. Saw a group of kids with 4 boys on really nice e-bikes and their 4 dates?girlfriends?female friends? on old beaters...

    Also, I feel like since all this covid shits, more and more people are out on e-bikes which enables people who normally wouldn't be out to go out...and they don't understand trail etiquette. I've seen more trail etiquette issues with e-bikers than I have with non e-bikers. :/

    Nice, we were just there this weekend. Not for biking but we’ll be there soon for some of that. We did some wheeling off 222

    lol. Never seen nor heard of those guys. My worry with them would be that you're attaching to the frame. eventually, it'll rub through the paint and stuff. you'd want to use like a clean microfiber or something to prevent the rubber from marring up your fork and frames.

    Yeah I was looking at them. I got Pike stickers off another big company once but it was cut on white vinyl and you should see the white edges - really bugged me.

    They have a Hawaiian 34 sticker kit for last years 34. Need to see if they can do that with the new style.

    I did my own service on my Fox 36 last week. Huge amounts of grease packing in the negative air chamber, turns out this is a common issue from Fox. I cleaned it all up and LIGHTLY regreased it, new wipers, foam rings, oil etc, two year old fork feels 10x better than it did when it was new. Noticeable difference in small bump sensitivity, significantly less arm pump after all the down hill this week. May be something to look into if anyone else is running Fox forks.

    EDIT: This is not my picture, hands were too greasy to get the phone out, but my air shaft looked worse than this even.

    I was reading that too. Grease blocks the holes in the shims and gives you that small bump chatter. Good to know!

    Well it saved me $300, I was ready to spring for the Grip2 damper, but now the Fit4 feels great.

    FYI, I'll get your drivetrain in the mail this afternoon or tomorrow.

    If you never, ever want to worry about spring maintenance or air trapped in the lower and want better small bump sensitivity from your 36... Heavy though.

    I know, the weight is what is keeping me away. I've been ok with the extra 250 grams of the rear coil vs the DPX2 but not sure I want the added weight up front.....

    Another thought about hitch racks - they're quick and easy to use with multiple vehicles (assuming the proper receiver). We have a hitch rack that gets regular use both on my truck and my wife's Subaru.

    We do the same thing, it really only takes 60 seconds to move the 1up between cars. I always feel like I should take the Subaru when it's just me heading somewhere, but I like driving my truck so much more!

    You are officially addicted. Congrats!

    I hope your bike actually sees the mud more than your truck

    Dude sweet! Stanley Gap is a cool little gem down there. There are some fast locals

    So overall would you recommend the DIY damper service as worth it? Or just pay to send it off?

    You can still get air trapped in the lowers. But yes, 100% agree the ACS3 is a worthy upgrade. Definitely a noticeably better ride.

    You won't notice it, other than on a scale.
