Leapb4ulook, just a suggestion, since you can not only add points but regions too, would it be worth getting some of the teams/groups/crews (Team BAD/MEBA/Kent ATB) to mark on their territory or usual stomping areas as a rough overall shape? I've got a feeling that a similar map used to be on the ol...

Those descents look pretty scary, I'd be starting quite low on those and working my way up. Its the shot of Matyn James' battle scars on the photobucket album that scares me the most though!

Never, never, never say on a mountain board "watch this" or "one last run".
Both recipes for disaster!

hmm was going to edit the post, but cant find edit button... Anyways, stripped down the wheels so should be more accurate. I could have stripped down the MBS, but I thought the noSno would be simpler to to together a quick example. Shaker, the parts have been dried first - no way will the wife forgi...

I like GMs idea of a deck construction wizard very much. Maybe I'm getting well ahead of the game here, but if weight data was collected at some point then at the end of the wizard it'd also tell you how much your board weighed in total. Just because its raining I got to strip down and clean the nos...

I believe (i.e. please correct me if I wrong!!!!!:D ) that the MBS Pro 16 - Leon Robbins is 3 cm longer, and the MBS Comp 26X is 10 cm longer. Its the Leon Robins that I ride, upgraded from a comp 16 when it started to seriously de-lam. Its actually slightly longer than my noSno with 12x770 with 10"...

I was going to do a how-to guide myself on changing eggs/dampas but looks like someone will beat me to it! Obviously, there are many ways to do it - I do it at home using a G-clamp to compress the first spring/dampa down, then simply slide the second set into place. Other methods that I have seen ra...

KurlyQ, thats not a bad deal listed above. However, unless I've missed it, no body has asked your height and weight before giving advice. My word of advice is that if you are particularly tall for example, a longer comp deck may be more appropriate than a core deck or the core deck depending on age ...

Cannock Chase is about an hours drive from me (Derby). Give us a shout if you're having a meet there and if I can, I'll join you.

Cheers
