right off hand. I press the levers, it stops!
They are burning in a bit and with the little time that I had on it, they are getting tighter.


Unfortunately, this is some bad timing for me to ride the bike more, jet (and re-jet) and adjust things more. I am leaving town for some Utah single track in a few days so can't ride the bike much more until the event in a few weeks.

Don't tell me you are headed to where the "5 Miles of hell" trail is? My dad & I have been wanting to go there, but it would be with trials bikes only, as that is all I have (unless you count 2 reflexes, and a moped or 2).

. On dirt bikes. A trials bike would be cheating.
