    You guys don't run gummys out there? 525 cheater is leaps and bounds nicer than the trackmaster in the rocks. But yeah it turns out the valve stem ripped but I can't find any evidence of damage anywhere else. And I don't tighten down the stem either so it was strange. But yeah I always carry a full 21" tube, CO2 and my aluminum spoons. It went really easy especially since it was a front, the hardest part was keeping dirt off/out of everything on assembly. I imagine my rear gummy would fight me A LOT more.

    That's what my buddies said, they would be like I'd be calling my wife to grab the truck lol

    Im cheap and the trackmaster does well for pretty much everything. While a cheater gummy would be amazing youd get one or two rides and it would be done with the hard sharp rock n desert stuff we have out here.

    I think you would be surprised if you have it a shot. We have sharp shale and granite in the rocks we ride and they hold up decent IMO. And gummys are weird that they still perform damn good on rocks even near the end of their life.

    Wow that's awesome, and the trip of a lifetime. One day i'll follow in your footsteps

    don't like that

    Can relate though, i've been nearly incapacitated before from both lower back issues and upper back/neck issues. never fund to deal with, make sure to take it easy. maybe a massage if you have a good place nearby.

    Looks plenty good enough for street lol

    Interesting. I wonder how they fair on the road. A bit of my dirtbike riding is connecting trails on pavement.

    For what it's worth I ride 30 mins to the trails on the road and the rocks chewed them up way more than the road did. They are worth a try IMO.

    Word of warning, one of the first times my back got really bad, that was my plan. Spoke to the massage therapist and they warned me it needed to loosed up some first. Told me if they worked on me when it was super tight like it had been that they could do more harm and I needed at least some movement in my lower back first. At the time it was that bad that I couldn't bend enough to even tie my shoes. I stretched, took ibuprofen, and used a heating pad for a few days then had the massage. It helped a lot.

    BTW, at that time the pain was such that any "happy ending" was out of the question.

    I was going to say kidney stones. I have had the exact same symptoms during a kidney stone moving from my kidney to my bladder. I thought I had a herniated disc because that’s what it felt like. Had sciatic pain too.

    also had my first stone @ 22yrs old. I have had 5 more in my lifetime so far. Had them soundblasted two times and passed the others . I did tests after test and the doc couldn’t find a reason for them. Just part of my life. Very very painful sometimes.

    I started doing some stretching in bed, along with a heating pad. I never went to a doctor for my pain. Eventually got a massage gun on Amazon, and its helped. I also stayed away from Alieve because I took too much a few years ago, and i think i risked my kidneys. Now i just try to stay away from it

    Now i stretch when i can, and it hasn't come back. I havent been doing the same stuff that i was doing before though.

    Ill try to send you some on fb that helped me. Theyre not intense. Just moving your legs around. For me, I think my hips were rarely stretched, and "locked". Back is connected to almost everything, so its crucial to have mobility.

    also "popping" my back has been helping. I feel your pain though. I was so jealous of people that were jumping and doing weird stuff - for 3 months! Then one day i was fixed haha. Now i try to keep up with stretching. It takes 5 min when i wake up, and before sleep. And whenever you want in the middle of the day

    We got a theragun in December and it's been amazing for anytime I was tight and in pain. We had end of the year FSA funds we needed to use and picked it up for shits and giggles and I'm a believer now.
