Time for an update!!  First off, I spent most of the spring and summer preparing for a trip of a lifetime.... I climbed Kilimanjaro and went on a 5 day safari in Tanzania. It was an amazing trip to say the least.  As far as climbing to 19K feet, this was the most mentally challenging thing I have ever done.  I have ran Marathons, pushed myself mountain biking but the mental/physical mind F*ck of climbing this high was unreal.


Congrats!  I climbed Kilimanjaro in October 2018 it was an amazing experience.  Did 3 days in a resort on Zanzibar after to relax.   I have done Full on Ironman triathlons and that summit hike was one of the most mentally challenging things I have done!

Congrats also on the Kilimanjaro climb!  I did Mt Whitney 2 years ago (14,500ft) and it wasn't really that bad at all.  Even though it did snow on us at the top then chased us down the mountain with rain/lighting for a couple hours! 

I bought a used 2018 Specialized FSR Enduro from a buddy that works at Specialized in the marketing department.  1 of 1 Army green paint, Fox Racing 36 front, Ohlins air shock out back, carbon everything. Baddest MTBike I've ever owned.

Glad you got to at least drive the new setup for about 500 miles... hopefully the snow melts and you can take it back out before winter hibernation.
Anyone that needs a new T56 Magnum F style please reach out to me.  I also just bought a bunch of McLeod clutches/flywheels etc.

I'm stealing your trans jack rig idea.  That's genius!

Man, I did buy the Harbor Freight one, and it's a pain in the ass. I agree, your trans jack is perfect! Shoot, maybe you could get with Frijolee, do a small production run and the 2 of you could make a few bucks selling a kit thru Ronin.

Thanks everyone.  I was pretty pumped how well the trans jack worked. It ended up being perfectly level which made installing the new trans pretty easy and most important, a one man job.  If anyone wants to make their own, I can give you instructions.

I got a shop with downtime, we could make that easily if Wicked would shoot me the design.  Very innovative!
