im sure it wont take you long to get used to the new set up and you will be rolling around in no time
is your bike a 1x? where you only have one ring up front and a range of gears in the back
/i was looking at a pic of your new bike and it looks like this is the factory set up
take a little getting used to but this is the direction things seem to be going
/ a lot of my friends run 1x set ups and a few even run single speed
the mrs still keeps a big ring up front so i need the extra gear to keep up with her, but im hoping to transition to a 1x set up one of these days
most quality shocks are air shocks now
you are right that you get more modulation out of them
so it looks like the sativa i was growing was a dud
i let it go much longer than expected and was rewarded with nothing but hemp!
/seriously, i rub the stems and there is no smell at all
it produced a bunch of thin, spindally buds that are near worthless
im cracking some new sativas that i was gifted by our man, p'fan, as we speak and will post up some pics of those babies here soon
the other indica pheno looks and smells great!
a really deep sweet and coffee smell, with a hint of stoney goodness
hope everyone is having a great week
Good afternoon pop_rocks.
I learned to ride on twist shift and it was really hard to ride clickers after that. I think what I liked most about twist shift was that when going downhill and approaching a steep climb you could go all the way from the big gear to the small one on the back end, where as clickers you had to cliche through each gear which took too much time and you'd lose momentum up the climb. It looks like the new clickers allow you to drop multiple gears at a time so maybe I will like that better than I use to. I'm going to give the clickers a chance.
Yes the roscoe is a single front cog bike. I've always rode 18 speed set ups with 3 front and 6 rear cogs. It's crazy thay can get 11 speeds all in the back now. I never liked changing front gears, always felt clunky compared to rear gear shifts. As long as it's got a couple climbing gears and a good overdrive and all are well spaced it should be a great set up. I need to spend some time on the bike before I know how much I'll like the set up and new style of things. Unfortunately we are getting more snow today so it might be a while before that happens.
Sorry to hear that the sativa isn't any good. A lot of fun growing from seed but it's got the potential to be disappointing as well. I hope your next ones make up for it. Glad to hear that your indica is doing well. A coffee smelling plant sounds great, and like you said you can always smell that Stoney goodness.
I've got a bit of work to do tonight in the garden and I promise an update and pics by sometime tomorrow. I hope your week is going great too!
