    Upgraded fork on FS RC - Wow!

    Have a 2016 FullSeven Xduro RC and it came with Rock Shox 120mm travel Recon solo air forks. They were OK, but nothing like the Pikes on my Bulls. Also liked the slacker 66 degree head angle on the Bulls as apposed to the 69 degrees on the RC. I found a great deal on a new 160mm travel Lyrik...

There is a lot of hate out there for...

Also, the vehicle's license plate is not visible directly behind. I'm concerned that I may get pulled over and cited by the police, however I see...

    EBO kit comparison with Haibike

    Last autumn I discovered ebikes and have been very enthusiastic about them ever since. After reading and watching just about every one of Court’s reviews at that time, I decided to purchase 2 Electric Bike Outfitter kits for my wife’s and my 20 and 30 year old mountain bikes which I previously...
