Let's see some pics from back in the day...  Amazing how much mountain bikes have changed in the past couple decades...

The bikes have changed, but I still ride them the same. First CAMBR campout.

I realize this probably isn't the right place for this post but I couldn't figure out the new swap and sell section. Sorry.

I'm wondering if anyone has a 20mm rock shox all-travel spacer laying around? I just got a new argyle for my jump bike and want to lower it. I know I can use any number of homemade spacers, but I have two out the three real spacers so I would like to use the official parts if possible. If anyone has one that they are willing to part with, Please let me know and we can work something out for it.  Thanks

1st pic:  1995 Kona Kilauea.  Still have it, still have the Spinergy wheels too.  Check out the killer Marzocchi XC700 air/oil fork...

2nd pic:  1998? ProCraft custom 853 steel frame with YBB rear end (it didn't work) Manitou Titanium/Elastomer fork...still have that layin' around too!

3rd pic:  Same bike (after breaking it and having it repainted team colors)  Didn't work again (steel weakens, titanium doesn't) First generation Rock Shox SID...back when you could get one for like $250, lol.

 On a fat bike tire choice (and pressure) is pretty crucial depending on conditions.   Having two sets or more of tires makes a huge difference on usability of a fat bike.  What makes these bikes what they are is the tires.  Riding Nates (or what ever super knobby tire) in dry conditions or on pavement sucks.  But without them in the snow, your bike can be as useless as a 2.0 tire.  And vice versa with low profile treads.

 I haven't ridden a fat bike with suspension yet, but I don't ride my current bike that aggressively that I feel a need for a fork.  Thats what my duel suspension bike is for.   Fat bike tire sidewall flex is pretty incredible without suspension.

  I've never bought into the "steel frames rust and break".  They might do that if you have some super custom lightweight steel frame, but those aren't to popular anymore.    I have steel bikes from the 1930's that were left outside for decades and they still work and haven't broken.  Obviously, if you submerge your bike water, than ride it in slushy salt and leave it outside you will have problems.  But you components will be the fist to go, not your frame.  Just make sure everything is properly assembled and you shouldn't have any problems.

  And stay away from press fit this or that bottom brackets if you can!!!   Those WILL eventually give you problems and require more maintenance.  Its total bike industry hype.  Less tooling required to produce, more replacement parts to sell.
