    Christmas in July.


    After two months of stunning heat, single digit humidity, and trail surfaces the consistency of (deep) baby powder, the monsoons have arrived.  





    Yes, arrived--and brought with them triple digit humidity, ball-bearings-on-concrete trails, and sketchy new ruts seemingly whenever you let the bike run.



    I'll take it.  All of it.















    Nice to have the change--feels like a gift relative to what came before.
















    Please enjoy a quick edit of 'where I go when the day has gotten long and I only have an hour to burn...".

    Damn it, Mike! All of your videos and 40 pages of threads on the Lunch Box have got me wanting one after I made a decision to avoid longer travel bikes, cuz they get me in trouble.

    Nice riding!

    Great video as always Mike. So what part of Az (I am assuming) is this? Plans to head to Sedona with my dad in April 2015 and will be taking the mtb with me.

    Stunning. Although I confess, as a Giant Anthem 29er rider myself, I think I'd have used the other guy's line on that bit at the end. Might keep me from having to warranty another frame...

    I find it's the opposite--they save my ass over and over. I get in far more trouble when I ride short-travel bikes...
