    Finally getting this bike dialed in. As I expected it's bobs quite a bit when pedaling. I rode yesterday's ride with the propedal on for the entire ride and was quite happy with the results. Now it pedals a lot better, but still sucks up the bumps when needed. Still need to tweak the pressures in both the shock and fork a bit.



    Can't wait for the next ride!

    Yes, I was only using propedal for road sections of the ride. On my shock it's either on or off, there's no in between.

    You should have joined us yesterday, we had a good ride. The trails were surprisingly dry. Not sure when I'm getting out again. I would like to ride again on Wednesday, but I need to see how things go in the next couple of days.

    They have the Fox Talas 150 on Chainlove now for $429. Has the 15mm so you'll need a new front hub.

    Thanks, that's about $450 more than I have a budget for at the moment though.

    Gonna have to live with what I have for now...

    I like it. It took a little getting used to. I liked the rear suspension on my old bike more, but with the propedal setting of the rear shock turned on it's been pretty good. Still using the old fork, I don't see that changing any time too soon, but I'll keep my eyes out. I need to replace the rear derailleur/hanger and rear wheel, along with normal annual maintenance stuff like tires, chain, cassette, etc.. first.

    I'm thinking I need to do the drivetrain on my bike this year too. Still have the original one.

    How many miles are on it? I replace my chain every year (at least), usually the cassette is getting worn by then too (or I've bent one or more of the cogs). You don't want to put a new chain on a worn cassette. I usually do the middle chain ring too.

    I must be pushing 1000 miles on it, will have to check when I get home. Yea, I'll need to get a front ring too.
