Sorry but that is absolutely hilarious! Some idiot is crying that she/he lost their nose ring.

It was 84 degrees in Dallas today, and I took advantage of it. I rode a 25 mile loop. The first 5 miles were on a busy street with a 50 mph speed limit. I was trying to keep my speed down. The first chance I got to take a peak, it said 49.8. I was just keeping up with traffic officer. Obviously speed isn't a problem. Range anxiety is a distant memory, I love my big battery too. Oh yeah, Fox 40s.

See what I mean. It's really hard to justify adding more performance to my bike, and if I did I'm not sure it would be as good as it is now.

I think that top speed is an all time record for my bike. It's probably worth noting that's with the Statorade I added late last summer. My speedo err is +0.5 mph. I guess there really isn't any drag.

There's no fender kit you can buy, I had to adapt these for my purposes. There's 3 separate parts, the fenders, the mounts, and the stays. Fenders are easy to find, it's the mounts, and stays that are difficult. My fenders are from Electra Bicycles, now owned by Specialized. Front is a Stubby, and back is a cut down cruiser full fender. The mounts are from Planet Bike.

I bought steel rod stock at a hardware store, and bent, and cut it to the correct size.

Mounting the front fender was easier to find parts for, but a lot harder to describe how to do it. If you get that far let me know and I'll give the details. It's actually a lot easier to install fenders than it sounds.

I bet it's also a lot easier to install streamers than it sounds too. :shock: :lol: :bigthumb:

Me and Buffy got married in 1975. The first thing she told me, like the very next day was, "responsible married men shouldn't ride bikes, don't you agree?" Something like that. We'd known each other from elementary school, and I don't remember hearing about this until right after the wedding.

Now 46 years later she says I'm worthless because I don't have a job, and all I do is ride, and play with my bikes.

I love her so much, she just gave me permission to quit my job.

My question is, does this seem like a good time to quit my job?
Well, Buffy, obviously hasn't lived as fun of a life as you have. Not sure about quitting your job, especially if you like it.

Well, haha, she thinks she has LOL. We each think the other one is a little bit crazy. That's probably the secret to our longevity, but I'm sure we all agree, it's her. :D

1abv,

So is the rear shock just excellent? I keep thinking I want to buy a better rear shock. No regrets? Anything you would change? How does it do in whoops and when the wheel comes off the ground?

I refuse to pay a $1000 for a stinkin shock absorber. $2000 for forks is ok though. That's just how I roll.

Their new website will be evolving over the next year or so and more information about the other models will be available. The new light weight low powered mid drive models are going to be the focus point for a bit.

Elaborate on this would you? I mean I would never pay 1k+ for shock, unless the one I had couldn't be revalved, then I would. On our heavy hub powered machines, the rear shock set up for the un-suspended mass is much more important than the front as far as priority goes. BTW, I think Buffy is a cool lady for letting you ride, and retire. :D

1abv,

Short answer.. Hell Yes!

Its much better than anything else your going to find. I researched Ohlins, FOX, White Power, Elka and many others before deciding on this one. I've had custom Ohlins, Showa, KYB, and WP suspension.
I am pretty specific about suspension on my bikes and motorcycles. My front suspension looks like a Marzocchi 888 but the internals are custom and totally different. Avalanche racing. I mention this stuff not for bragging rights but to understand that suspension is very important to me. Much more than motor power.

The stock bomber DNM is a copy of an Elka which is a decent shock. A few of the issues with it is that the nitrogen levels are inconsistent shock to shock and most likely are low in all of them. The oil is cheap as hell and probably worn out and the valve stack has a limited range of adjustability. But the shock is 100-200 dollars so I didn't expect much. You can make it a lot better. I had the stock shock re-valved and re-sprung twice. It made it much better but not good. The square edge bumps were still a huge issue for me. It would handle bigger jumps fine as long as the take off and landing were smooth but that's about it. Other issues were that the rear end would kick like a mule no matter what I did to rebound and compression, it was harsh as hell, and would not track.

What your going to get with the Race Tech Shock is customization. You will get it dialed in to exactly what you want. Another guy w a bomber had one installed on his bike. His was set up for motocross. Initially they used his settings on my shock. It was way to hard for me. Part of me was thinking did I just blow 1500 bucks for a shock?? I sent it back and told him what I I didn't like and to make it for aggressive trail riding and now its the shit. I have it set up really light. 450 lb spring and the valving is light which I love. Its like a frocking trophy truck. Just soaks up everything I ride. I don't do big air so I'de rather use the travel for smaller bumps and obstacles. The more specific you are with what you want the easier it will be to get it. They can build what ever you want and can also help direct down the right path.

My back doesn't hurt at all after 25-30 miles in the dirt (with the DNM it was about 4-5 miles) The rear end does not kick up at all. it doesn't deflect over rocks and tracks straight though rock gardens. High speed downhills, the bike is totally in control. With the DNM I would be worried about a cross rut or a kicker on down hills.

If you are street bias there is no need for this. If you ride off-road and you have found limitations w the stock suspension then yes its the way to go. Is it worth 1500.00? That's up to you. I can tell you it will be better than what you have for sure. Will it be as good as a well set up mid drive bike.. Probably not. I ride my bike almost every day and needed it to be better.

Hope this helps!

Well my problem with a $1500 shock is mainly just that I don't have one. :cry:
It's on my list, but I'm just not feeling it. My $110 Fastace shock works a little better than stock. Honestly I spend a lot of time riding at low speed officer. :)

Buffy is great though, thank you.
