I get some pro discounts with my IMBA membership through Expertcity.com just ordered my some Fox kneepads for 36 bux vs the 70 or so they usually are.

I don't want this happening again, and it could have been worse but wasn't. This wasn't even my fault, stupid idiots stopped on a DH trail and stood damn near in the middle of it.

Neepads are great.
We are in the process of setting up some e-sales. Things will be discounted plus I hook anyone here up with some discount codes. Won't be up and running until our new website is up. Fingers crossed mid October.

That drop in your yard looks fun. Minus the banged up knee

Welp, DB wiped their hands clean and sent me packing to talk to a bike shop about service or replacement. I really wanted to just handle it through them.

Ugh...

So I took my bike to my local bike shop. The owner wasn't there so that was a plus. The bike mechanic manager is really knowledgeable. He said he talked to Rockshox and apparently the debonair type of shock had to be setup differently.

Apparently you are supposed to start out with 25# air. Sit on it and check the sag. Then continue to do this until you've got 25% sag.

This was completely different than what the manual was telling me & Diamondback's video on YouTube. I'll have the mechanic show me how to set it properly tomorrow.

Glad it's not messed up. Hopefully I can go ride it tomorrow. 😎
