Re: Dropped my bike for the first time

I dropped my first bike 2007 R6S, and lifted it all alone when I was 16. Of course in high school I was on the power lifting team so...it wasn't that much of an issue for me.

Re: Dropped my bike for the first time

Want to order my frame sliders this week. Do I order directly from Woodcraft or is there someone on the forum to order through and support?

get in touch with Ant (ChiefSmokeDawg). He's a woodcraft vendor and owns BAUCE racing that you may have heard of around here. Pretty sure hes still on vacation though so you may not hear back from him for a few days. Just a heads up.
