      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

What do you ride?

Recommended Posts

2000 Suzuki VZ800.

 

Likes: Comfy for long rides, not too heavy, cheap, simple. Tops out at 110 mph.

 

Dislikes: Carburated (prefer FI), chain (prefer shaft), requires some valve adjustment. Really heavy cantilevered muffler fell off on a dirt road due to vibration fatigue (poor design). Dead spot in carburator when accelerating through mid range rpms. Not enough ground clearance to really lean it over when turning. Gas tank could be a little larger.

I'll probably let it go this winter. :cry:

For hooman powered stuff, I build my own cheap bikes.

 

Road Bike: No-name AL frame built with Shimano 105 stuff. Speed comes from the motor, not the frame.

 

Mountain Bike: Access XCL frame with Shimano Deore XT and a Mazocchi MXR pro coil in front. I just sold it. Looking to build a 29er in the next year or two.
