Re: 2009 KTM 250 XC-F engine project

That sucks a lot, but at least you know it happened and didn't carry on/try to start it.

Re: Mountain bike trails

My bike (shimano e8000 system) has 3 modes, eco, trail, and boost. Eco mode basically overcomes the weight of the bike, I use this on flat or downhill. Trail is something like 50-70% assistance which is what I tend to ride in the most. Boost is 100% and unless it is really steep you are just spinnin...

Re: Mountain bike trails

I've been there a few times now. Not a bad little riding area. Trails are pretty tame and they have a couple mild downhill lines with some jumps.

Re: Mountain bike trails

13 miles today at Great Cacapon Park in Morgan county. Lot of pretty easy trail and well marked for the most part. https://photos.smugmug.com/Mobile-uploads/i-5CtrNPr/0/a38d75ec/XL/20210403_160231-XL.jpg Some not so much (I turned around and took the road to the top of this) https://photos.smugmug.c...

Re: Mountain bike trails

Eh, 50/50. Basically same as the dirt bike, gotta have momentum. Just a lot harder to keep it while having to pedal and not hit rocks with the pedals.

Re: Mountain bike trails

Put some miles on the Focus. I hadn't been to these trails before and it was only about 25 mins away (rolling ridge/speakeasy trails here in Jefferson county). It was way more technical than I was hoping. I would have turned around after 5 minutes on the analog bike :lol2: https://photos.smugmug.com...

Re: Knee braces.

I started with original Asterisks, wore Leatt C frames (standard and carbon) for a few years and now back to a new set of Asterisks.

Don't know what you'd have to do to get them through FSA

Re: Knee braces.

My opinion on them is if you're offroad you should have braces. One of my buddies was out with us at taskers and came to a stop and missed his footing, falling over and wrecked his knee. A couple hundred bucks for braces could have saved him years of pain (he didn't do the proper physical therapy af...

Re: What did you work on today?

Swapped in a fresh set of sla batteries in the Oset. A lot more peppy now, caught me off guard and almost looped it, ended up yanking in the rear brake lever as if it were the clutch and DAMN near went over the bars :lol2: Might see about trying to adapt a foot lever to make it more dirt bike like f...
