And forgot just how twitchy it is. That’s why we all used these bikes for trials back then (that would be the raging 90’s to those of you new to this). Perfect rake on the fork. But after a bit, I settled in with it ( I quit whipping the front wheel back and forth with every pedal). The seatpost kept slipping and I had to tighten it part way through.Yes, I did get off the bike to do this. With my LONG seatpost, I have to! I’m thinking I may just pick up a bolt to replace the QR.
As I was riding by park HQ I heard a small “pop” when I touched the rear brake.
I finished with a super fast sprint back to town that would make a turtle look like it was standing still. I’m that fast:P And to top off the little jaunt, I received an email from Uber Ranger Babette saying the park air quality was that of a rancid skunk! Yay for my lungs!
-As some may figure out, the Paramount did not spring a full suspension rear end. I took pics of the Fuel’s brakes to show how the spring looked in and out of place.
