the biopaces have sorta been reintroduced as the www.rotorbikeusa.com/products/qrings_MTB.html . what kinda suspension (if any) are you running on your rig?

I can shift 8 gears at once with my thumb shifters. And I do sometimes since my 2x9 lets me use all gear combinations.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
