    Cheers, ;)

    Drain plugs lead to power and speed? You want to share what you're smoking?

    Drain plugs do make replacing the front fork "oil" easier, though.

    Inseam length is the real key to how tall a bike one can comfortably ride. A second factor is the seat width. I have a 28-inch inseam and can comfortably ride a 32-inch seat height dual sport...
