  1. I know several people who have gone to Skyler Howes training classes in St George. I’ve only ever heard great things regardless if it’s a kid, a woman, a newbie, or an expert. If your not familiar with skyler, check him out! He is a total badass, focused mainly on rally type Offroad like Dakar style racing. He is an amazing desert racer and has all the skills to back up everything he teaches. I believe he’s only in his twenties, but is said to be a very humble relatable fun guy. http:// http://www.skylerhowes110.com/schools.html A more local option is out in Cedar Fort with Sorenson MX training. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this guy, but don’t know much about it personally. I have a 7 yo daughter that races MX and lots of kids her age have gone to his school. http:// http://sorensenmxtraining.com/
  2. Oh wow, that is odd. How come it seems some bikes have issues and some bikes are perfect? I’d love an option to slide my master cylinder up a few mm to fix the issue. Perhaps I could have an adaptor machined....
  3. Sorry for the late reply, I kept forgetting to get a picture. Mine sticks out plenty. In fact that’s probably helping your high pedal stay out of the way a bit more than mine was. At this location I’ll be able to use both top and bottom spots.
  4. I can’t wait for the days I can ride like that with my kid! Some of those hulls are no joke, you’ve got yourself one heck of a riding buddy
  5. I picked up a stepped brake tip to try out first. It looks like it will help quite a bit.

    I like to park on the south east side of the mountain by the corrals. Most of the trails intersect back that way and it’s pretty central. I’m glad you liked it out there, it’s crazy how much single track is hidden away in there!

    The only place I’ve see. Signs like that are on the far north end by eagle mountain. The bulk of lake mountain and surrounding areas are open to motorized vehicle travel. Lots of us start on the south end of the range and ride to the north up the mountains or stay low on the south and west sides. If you come from the eagle mountain side, just keep in mind it’s all private property until your on the base of the mountain. There are several ranchers over there who are quite upset about people parking and unloading in their grazing area.
  8. Awesome ideas, thank you! I read through your other post and will shorten up that actuator rod as well. Thank you for the links! They were very helpful
  9. I’m completely in love with my Xtrainer, but there’s one thing that I can’t figure out. Why do the brake pedals sit up so high? At first I thought my stock pedal was bent, so I swapped it for a Boano one. When that didn’t fix it I looked around at other Xtrainers and realized they are all the same. Notice that this is adjusted DOWN as far as possible! I’ve even removed the jam nut behind the Clevis for extra adjustment. As it sits in its lowest position it’s still about 1 inch above my foot pegs. This causes me to ride with my foot beside the brake instead of covering it, and one day it will cause a wreck. Does anyone have any idea how I can improve this? Could there be something I’m overlooking? Are you guys experiencing the same thing?
  10. You sir, are a google ninja! Seriously though thanks for the link. I’m a bit nervous about fit since it fits sx, sx mini, and adventure. I know there have been changes over the years
  11. I let my daughter design her own graphics and she decided on blacked out background with hot pink numbers and cyan blue designs. That will look really cool, but not in the factory orange and white plastics plastics. I’m shocked to find it impossible to get black plastics for these little bikes! Does anybody know where I can find some??
  12. I just picked up a set from SKDesigns.com. They fit great and look great.
  13. Is this a real concern? I’ve never heard that one, interesting.
  14. I’d just tack weld a nut onto it and back it off with that
  15. Ha ha, No you sure don’t! Thanks for the feedback. I’ve been wanting to try a Scalvini pipe on my XT
