    Where is everyone?

    I can't believe there are no more posts on this site then I see. When I joined it was cranking. Now it seems like a mortuary. Where is everyone? Where did they go?

    Anyone have experience taking one of these apart? If anyone has suggestions or schematics please let me know. I have one in a local bicycle shop and cannot figure out how to take the rods out of the fork.

    New Yo

    Well I took the plunge today. I'll plunk down a deposit on a new Yo Eddy. It will be chameleon green without the fade. The new Yo will sit side-by-side with my 1986 Fat Chance which I bought new. I think I got my money's worth out of it and hope to do so with the new Yo Eddy.
