Can you swap out the rear shock and still be ss legal?
Why don't you just spring it for your weight, say close enough and spend the money on an extra set of race tires?

Dave at GP Suspension said I could change the rear shock and stay SS legal. He said something to the effect, all his shock work is SS legal, including the shocks he sells new.

I asked about just adding a heavier spring, he told me it would work, but not as well as having a freshly serviced shock with the same spring.

If I can find one used, I could use it next year, and maybe sell it for what I paid for it. It just annoys me the Sachs isnt servicable.

Big-E, want to go to Tom's tomorrow and hang for a few? I hear he has some really cool bikes.

Yeah, I'd be down with that... oh - wait. Let me check with Katie - I may have prior obligations. Seems like I'm supposed to do something.

Let me know, I would like to go for an hour or two. Hell, bring Katie, there may be some bikes there she would be interested in. I think he has a bunch of those trial bikes, their kind of funky looking. :)

I looked at the calendar - Katie's work x-mas party is at 6:30, and I said I'd go. I may try to weasel out of it, but it prolly won't work.

how many did you eat?
I needed to really make sure I didnt like them, I think there were no less then 5 consumed in my effort to determine their nutritional, and taste bud value.
