I got tired of the Depends, having to change them all the time and all. So I went and had a colostomy bag installed. Now I can just open the valve and empty it where I want.

Stand back.. I got this... Not. That was straight down longer than my Jeep. Matthew was puckering up the other seat cushion until Chris pulled us off of that. I wasn't skeered. lol

Once his front end stretched out like that if he engaged the suck down it would pull his front end closer to the frame (and ground). Lower COG and he has a better chance of crawling over the obstacle.

Kevin you don't need a suck down winch, just wheel base. I climbed up that Saturday with only 33s. Hahah. Held one tire to the right to avoid hole and then let the travel do the rest. Hahaha. If I went straight at it though I'd end up stuck just like you.

Kumra, order forks online and I will install them. I raced mtn bikes for 5 years and worked at a shop for 2.

See if this link works http://www.dropbox.com/s/2n30zx87kmf...2023.12.30.mp4 WJ , I know how to climb stuff and I Guarantee you wouldn't of gotten up that esp on 33s. There was a good size step down on top of that and my suspension unloaded. Thanks for the advice though.

Links not working. I'll post it up when I get home tonight. I'm on my phone right now and it's not convenient. ... that pic looks like that climb was small.. I got a shot of the other side and front...

The cheering makes that video so much better. Way to stick with it.

Ok Thanks. If you have any suggestions for a 100mm basic fork for a hard tail Kona Lemme know. Doesn't have to be super fancy but enough that it's not gonna crack like the one that's on there now. The drop didn't look as big on my side.

I would love to go. Sadly, I don't think my stock WK with bald tires and bad brakes is up for it.

This proves it's not the ride but the person behind the wheel.
