BLAST FROM THE PAST

#001 David Knight, flies up Joshua Tree.
In 2005 David Knight came to Belcher, Texas and kicked some serious butt in what was considered to be the toughest race ever held in the states. Even with the draw of a big purse and no entry fees for the racers (chosen based on results and resumes) no big U.S. teams (Suzuki being the main hammer in American off-road at the time) choose to take on the two 40-lap event. The Knighter killed it, showing a trials background mated to a deserved world ranking in enduro made for an athelete that was versatile enough to conquer obstacles that seemed unachievable at the time. It would be interesting if they held this race today as the sport of Extreme off-road is still dominated by the Euros, but riders like Cody Webb, Taylor Robert and Colton Haaker would certainly make it interesting.

 

 

Here’s a good long look at the original race in 2005 put together by Speed.

JGRMX Spring/Air Fork Kit

JGRMX Spring.Air Kit_Detail_2_LR

Combine the benefits of spring and air suspension with the JGRMX Spring/Air fork kit. This design replaces the stock triple chamber air fork cartridge in Showa SFF TAC and WP AER forks, turning the cartridge into a combination spring/air setup. The kit provides a spring-like feel through the initial part of the stroke, with the outstanding bottoming resistance of an air fork. Air pressure is controlled by a single chamber. The JGRMX Spring/Air fork kit allows you to run a considerably lighter fork spring, which provides better initial plushness and front-end traction. The single, inner air chamber can be adjusted to control the ramp-up effect through the stroke, as well as bottoming resistance.

JGRMX’s Spring/Air fork kit replaces the stock air cartridge in the right fork leg and can be used with stock damping, if desired. Inner chamber air pressure can be between as little as zero psi or as much as 25 psi, depending on personal preference. JGRMX will install the kit and revalve the forks for an additional $214.99, plus oil and wear parts (if needed). This price includes a dyno run on the Roehrig Engineering dyno. We recommend a shock revalve after the fork kit has been installed. This cost is $204.99, plus oil and wear parts (if needed).

The JGRMX Spring/Air fork kit includes the cartridge assembly, spring seat, fork spring, and three different preload spacers. Detailed installation instructions are provided. For more information, please contact our suspension department at (704) 274-3432.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

wolf1991isde

It’s 1991 and we’re in Považská Bystrica, Czechoslovakia for the ISDE. I rented a KTM300 from the factory, brought my suspension, bars, exhaust and Acerbis muffler (plastic, super quiet and great power!) and spent four days prior to the start putting it together and testing. The top shot shows my Six Days lid, my friend Jerry Bernardo painted all of my ISDE helmets and the gaggle of parts are what I’m attempting to bolt on. Alan Randt is lending me some guidance.

The lower shot shows me several sizes tinier than my current rubenesque state. Notice the clogs, Dick Burleson got me hooked on them and I wear them even today!
