  1. Lame. Hopped on the road bike to force feed myself some miles thinking Brushy would be too wet to ride. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I personally haven’t but two people on the trail conditions FB group have said 1/4 and DD are g2g.
  3. Google tells me the IW is 25.5mm on the EX rim. 2.3-2.4” tires would give you an ideal tread profile. 2.5” would be fine. Anything bigger is going to give you a lot sidewall flex while cornering. I’d personally run a 2.4 up front and a 2.3in the rear. That would give you a good balance between traction, rolling resistance and sidewall support. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Not necessary this exact item, but something similar to this. You could screw the clamp down to exactly where you want it on the square rod, and then screw down the measuring rod to hold it in place. Bracket Clamp
  5. @mack_turtle Very cool! similar to the DAG, I bet you could pick up a metal rod that fits snuggly in the holes. Throw a rubber o-ring on each side and you’d have a built in measuring device instead of using a ruler.
  6. 183A overpass works for me. I’ll text you when I’m heading out.
  7. I’m going to head out for a ride around 3:30. Let me know if you head to brushy and I’ll meet you out there.
  8. Lower service is easy. It sounds like OP is looking for a full annual service which includes rebuilding the damper. It’s definitely not easy and there are some specialized tools that your average home mechanic will not have laying around. Aluminum soft jaws for your vice, ifp depth gauge, and a nitrogen filling set up are the big ones that come to mind.
  9. I can confirm that cycle progression has the ability to do a full service on Fox suspension. Typically takes them 48-72 hours to turn it around. Its been mentioned in the past that select BSS locations had the ability to service Fox suspension but that may no longer be the case with the sale to Trek.
  10. If you care about having a warranty, I would not trade. Ibis only honors the warranty to the original owner. Both the ripley and the Ripmo are great bikes for Austin and you won’t be under or over whelmed with either one no matter where you ride. I’m of the mind that mountain biking is 80% rider skill and 20% bike capability. Switching to a shorter travel bike isn’t going to make walnut or brushy more exciting. Your skill level increasing will make it more exciting. keep ripping the Ripmo my man. It’s an amazing bike.
  11. Any interest in getting the band back together Friday morning? No early meetings this week! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Ah. Sorry I didn’t say hi. I was in the zone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Can confirm. Just hit rim, picnic, 1/4, and DD. Somewhere between hero dirt and dry depending on sunlight exposure.
  14. Yeah. 😞 the cell West of us was heading north but started to shift east around 2pm. We’ll see what happens.
  15. Geeze. Was expecting to get a bunch of rain today but it does not seem to be the case. Maybe we’ll get an R&I today. Can anyone confirm the absence or presence of significant precipitation in the Walnut area? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
