lol mehh im more in to bikes quicker and funner to ride (motorbikes) as long as it aint wet
There's like 3 versions of the Legacy GT.
There's the 3.0 (which is in certain areas, I think northern Europe and maybe Oz, they sell the 3.0R in the US which is automatic only), the 2.0 with the sequential turbo (JDM, yo), and the 2.5 single turbo which is Noth America and maybe some other areas.
All 3 of them have the spec B option.
I don't know anything about the 2.0. Everything else is pretty solid. Does it come with a 5 or 6 speed if you find a manual. Subaru's automtics are a bit disappointing.
hopefully i can get this
Wish me luck (loans, sale of my truck etc)
I got a new car ordered, I'm expecting it to arrive probably next week.
I'll post pics when it arrives.
ah, another saab fan!
my family drives mostly saabs, my brother has a really good '92 900 aero, they are great cars.
My mother used to have a T16S, and it was great to surprise people with bmw's and even some older porsches on the motorway.
the torque steer is not too bad i think, but i dont really have a comparison, as my company car doesnt really have any power.
triumph speed tripple ?????
Yessir...2001. I highly recommend trying one if you get the chance!
kwl im posibly geting a bandit 600 or a honda hornet 600 canrt aford one of those^^^ lol i will only be 17 so will be restricted to 33bhp for 2 years then after that i can have it unrestricted
Of those two, I'd go for the Hornet. Have fun and ride safe!
I posted about a month about wanting to get a bike, well I cought the bike-bug again and decided to buy one
My future ride (4 days til I can pick it up).
Genesis Core 10.
Now will start saving for some RockShox SiD forks
Pic is a couple years old, have some much better tires on it now. It was my first vehicle, got it when I was 16 and I'll be 22 in May, still running strong. Dodge FTW! Dream car would be a Dodge Viper ACR, keyword, dream lol.
if i were you i would get some marzocchi 55's
Marzocchi was also my first instinct, since some years back when I was biking they were the best, however from constant reading in forums, the quality has been going down since 2006, hence leaning towards RockShox which are now considered to be very good in terms of price/performance/weight.
The 55's are pretty heavy for what I will be doing... 6lbs!!! The SiD's are 3.25 Also 140mm is more for freeride I would say, 100mm should be long enough for trails. Also looked at RS Reba and Recon, some were 120mm and very light and strong.
140mm free ride pfft lol 170mm lol now whats more like it i will be ordering some marzocchi 66s come winter
Since ~2002 you mean. . . .
If it's not oil bath, it's crap. Air sucks.
I still run my 7 year old Z2 atom race. And it is as good as it was then. Yes, it weighs 2 tons, but its plush as hell and will last forever as long as I change the oil every half-decade.
But it turns out you can't make any money selling one fork per person every 20 years.
I have 0mm of suspension travel and don't complain lol
Personally, I'm not hard core enough to need a huge shock. 100mm would be plenty for me - it's still not going to ride/handle as well as the Bianchi
How can a bike with no suspension and 100psi tyres be so comfortable?!
Tempted to get a rigid fork on the Rocky Mountain. The decent XC stuff is 6 or 7 miles out which is a bit of a pain, so it's mainly tow paths and foot paths at the moment anyway - it's not quite as refined on the roads as the Bianchi lol
A good cro-mo fork would probably save about 15kg off the weight of the current fork too - it weighs a tonne!
get a carbon fork that way you will have some felx for the bumps and i can tell you my bike will handle better than ure road bike down hill road or no road
its all in the hips when it comes to bikes with big tires and suspension if u can drift without brakes then ure good to go lol
Heh, fair enough, All Mountain then
I'm not going for 60ft Bender drops or Grand Canyon drops, so a light 100-120mm fork will do just fine
It's carbon already
No road yes - but I wouldn't fancy your chances on a twisty, steep road - unless it came to braking before the corners
I've had >50mph out of it a number of times and at no point has it ever felt scary or wobbly in corners. And this is without the race rubber...
