Kayaks

Hey, I have a few kayaks. Where do you guys like to paddle? (Geographically, not anatomically - get your heads outta the gutter!)

On another note, I hope this isn't any of you!

damper question

Nug,
Are all Scotts dampers the same, or are they different for different bikes? (I understand the mounting brackets are different, I'm just talking about the damper itself.)

Man, I hear you! That's why I ultimately abandoned my $2K - $3K concept and just bit the bullet on the '01 4Runner. Plus, I am the one driving it around until he gets his real license, since I think...

same same

I am in the same boat: my 15 1/2 year old just got his permit. I ended up going with a 2001 4Runner I found through autotrader. Not exactly cheap, but I wanted something with airbags (my '95 4Runner,...

springs

So I've been contemplating finally getting the right fork and shock springs for my weight. Here's my question: Are progressive rate springs better for off road use, or single rate springs?

True words, Ken. And sometimes, the stuff you break is you! I still can't put any weight on my forefoot. It's been over a month! Stupid lisfranc joint.

You're welcome

Hey, Lope. Glad to help. I'm not sure how frequent it is, but I only had about 10k on mine when it broke. I had to get towed out of the woods by a TW200. Now that was humbling.
