Rode it like I stole it,then came home and popped advil because my back is killing me

Spent 3 hours yesterday de-rusting it. Woke up today and it's orange again


Sucks for you man,my sunday has been bare metal for almost a year and only has a tiny bit of rust on the wishbone from water splashing

Mine was the same way. perfectly fine bare metal until one day all hell broke loose. I ended up painting it purple.

Saw my friend front case a jump hard at the trails and go headfirst into the ground. Maybe now he'll start to wear a helmet.

Got around to the Home Depot and bought a bolt, nut and some washers for an improve bearing press. Installed the BB on my Beverage, then put it back in the box. One week from today I'm moving, so I'm just planning on riding the Forecaster till things settle down a bit. It's not like I have a lot of time to ride.
The ont end will have the f25 forks and 9" rise bars. Should I go with the odyssey cfl or Sunday freeze stem? I've got both, just can't decide.

Pick up some slightly lower bars and a Fit High Top stem :)

The gussets are awesome.  My wife has been needing my name carved into her for about a decade.

Been going through that for years. I have nerve damage also but honestly the best thing to do is get yourself some physiotherapy. They teach you exercises specifically for strengthening up the muscles that hole your arm in the shoulder socket & on top of that get yourself a properly arm/shoulder brace. Every time i ride now i use one & i havent had a sublaxation since.

Yes, that stem looks great, and I like the idea of not going down with a stem, only to go up with bars. My bike parts budget is shot for the year, though.

Oops, didn't notice you said you already had both.. I'd say use the Sunday Freeze stem but it's a toss up.

Quite sometime back someone on here mentioned they wanted to see camo elites built to army green rims with bright orange spokes as a "hunter theme"
well, its about to go down I'm just waiting on spokes to get here.



My man,  I sold you those hubs on eBay! Haha.  Hope you like them
