Sweet:thumbup

I remember winter rides when I first got my pro-flex. The elastomer forks got really stiff in sub freezing weather:doh How times have changed in terms of suspension tech huh?

Which reminds me that my fork is in desperate need of service... It's sticky and one of the seals is gone. And the rear shock SPV is acting weird and needs service. Drivetrain is gone. Front wheel bearings are gone.

But these pics are motivating! Looks very nice. Do you ride with spiked tires later in the winter?

nah, the amount of snow we get doesn't make it necessary for spikes
