If you have one of those babies (Brian, Isaac, Mike), you may want to check it out.

Yea when I replaced mine the stock bolt was not tight but not spinning loose. I used loctite when I put the new lever on.

we don't use gps for local trails since we're already familiar.

i hope someone has one on track mode and will chime in.

d, yeah, it has a pretty hefty tag, otherwise i don't have to sit on the fence.

local riding is still great, however now and then it will be nice to add some distant flavor.

rmar silverton is a good one and already happy i've done it. this year my sights are on oregon and northern nevada.

let's do bishop/mammoth in august...and moab this year.

Mammoth sounds great. Iv been known to make day trips up there to ski and snow board. I even made an epic mountain bike trip up there. 5 days of pure downhill gold.

Greetings from UT

This weekend I coached and rode motorcycle support at Ironman St George. Now exploring some big bike stuff on my way to Moab for two days of mtn biking.

Yesterday was ~270 miles, as StGeorge, Trumbull Schoolhouse, Torroweap, Fredonia, Kanab, Johnson Canyon to Skatumsomething road to Cannonville, then Hwy 12 to Escalante.

Today = easy AM mtn bike ride then more dirt to Moab.

Trumbull Schoolhouse after high speed dirt from StG. Kept the Ironman Course Marshall sticker in the bike for a few days



Just inside the gate of Torroweap



Torroweap on a Sunday = I had the overlook to myself







Yesterday was a 2hr mtn bike ride outside Escalante in Cedar Wash, then monkey fucking a bolt on the bike rack for the better part of an hour. Left Escalante at the crack of 12:30p.



Kiva Koffee House, where the coffee is $$$ but the smelly hippy kids are free.


Hwy 12 rocks


MB'ing on tap today and maybe Gemini Bridges on the unloaded 990
