Don't know much about them, but looking at the local listings, I'd say it's worth closer to 4k.

I'm thinking it is
Not a terrible price, but I would think a little closer to $5k, depending on miles. Cool looking paint job. That is about a $13k bike new.

(Curious if any others have done this. I'm not a bike guy (long story about a friend getting hit). Last I helped a friend make up a ski rack for his bike. Anybody else done this, if so are there pics?

I was in between pick up trucks last season so I purchased one of these. Ultimate MX hauler is by far the best hitch hauler i've used and seen. Is this what you mean by ski rack style (bike) rack?

? for all the wrenches out there. Fork oil. My fork seals failed at the end of last season so I sent them out to Factory Connection to be repaired (outstanding service). During this process I was asked a battery of questions about me, where I ride, and riding style. They forks leave the factory with 130mm of fork oil. FC rebuilt the forks and returned them with 110mm of oil. I feel this is a huge difference oil oil level. Although we are measuring in mm. I lost 20mm of oil.

Does the loss oil oil affect my fork hight? I am under the impression that this will soften my suspension at the middle to bottom of the stroke? I have not yet had a chance to ride as the weather is cold and trails are still frozen. But, I feel messing around with it in the garage that if I grab a handful of front brake I push down on the bars I can almost get the fork to bottom out. Under power I feel like I will have no problem getting it to bottom out. Sure it feels softer but, like I said I have not really had a chance to test it on trials.

Any info would be great.
