well yeah, we are still going to see stupid people making stupid threads, but hopefully this will cut down on it a little bit.

it's a sticky now.. so hopefully the original poster will continue to edit it with more helpful threads that come up...

as for the stock seat... it doesn't hurt my ass that bad.. and i have a boney ass.. haha..

I got a rider seat mod for ya....called bicycle shorts, ones with thick padding for your ass. It probably the only way I could go 100km in one day on a bike in one sitting.

The seat doesn't kill me unless I'm on a 40 mile+ ride. If it is hot out though I have to stand up for a little bit when I'm at a stop light.

I'm not really sure how the mods feel about articles from other forums but the link you gave me really didn't answer any pressing how to or diy questions... it did have some good information on what tools are needed for different jobs but it lacked pictures and didn't really solve any specific problems (ex: the needle jets mod in one of the FAQ's shows how to do the mod and other posts in the thread clarify the benefits of it)
so for now I'm going to leave that link off if there are no objections

this sounds useful, can anyone provide links or does anyone want to volunteer to do a write up?

ok heres how to hook up the computer.
i bought the BC906 model for $25.
i used a 2 part fast set adhesive to mount the magnet and signal pickup.
u need to keep the magnet close to the sensor 5mm max, mines set about 3mm.
all u need to do is set the wheel size, it's super easy and a lot of useful info.

here i mounted it on the handlebar via double stick tape


here u can see the sensor i mounted to the fork. i zip tied the wire to the fork and brake hose (leave slack in the wire for the suspension travel) i used the fast set adhesive for this also.


heres where i mounted the magnet to the rotor. i scuffed with a red scotch brite. and covered the magnet in the fast set adhesive and stuck it where i wanted it.
