So many options...

The title coulda been:

Back in Black

Stick a Fork in Me

Ebony and Ivory

Fat, drunk and suspended is no way to go through life

Either way I have decided it is time for the rigid fork to go back on.

I was going to wait for the MOOTS to get here before I went back to riding rigid, but with my first race now one month away I feel like I'd better figure out to ride with a rigid fork again. Quite a few times over the last few months I've ridden with my Fjox Fjork locked out, so it was painfully unpainfully obvious that I think I'm close to ready. More hours of each day go by where I don't think about my wrists/hands, so it's safe to assume something healed up in there somewhere.

I've missed my rigid fork sooooooooo much. I've had a few happy fun times on the squishy fork, and I definitely did a few things I wouldn't have done on the rigid fork, but I couldn't be more ready to move on. I'm also anxious to know whether or not the Rampage mounted to a 355 is gonna be cushy enough for some of the rougher hundies this year and the Breck Epic...

Oh yeah...

It's been awhile, but if you've been slacking off get over and place your vote so I can get a free entry to the Breck Epic. You only have nine days left to place your vote, and even better, you only have nine more days before I stop asking for your votes.

Hugs and kisses,

Dicky

You need that Moots! Where is it? Putting those wheels on a Zion is like putting Dubs on a '73 Vega.

i visited MOOts at NAHBS.
still somewhat bitter i decided to confront them about the association.

there was a lot of confusion, turns out they don't know any Rich Dillens and they thought Team Dicky was a group of homosexual pornstars...

not that there's anything wrong with that.

Welcome back to the rigid fork club. We missed you dearly.

Hey Dicky. I don't think your really going to loose any cushion with the narrower rim. It will maybe make the tire a bit squirmy in the corners at LOW pressures, but it won't make it any less cushy. It still has just as much air/volume (Which I believe is all the way up to 11 on those) between the tread, and the rim.

Oh, and you should put a link to faces of dicky on the side, so its just a click away every day.

The true test of volume will be this weekend.

The link for FOD is on the sidebar as Who is Team Dicky Today, but I'll change it for consistency's sake.
