    Sweet, a dirty bike is a happy bike.

    Careful though. People around these parts assume if your bike is dirty that you must be rutting up the trails.

    Dude that frame is CRAZY! I have yet to see a pic from that angle.

    I wish we would get some rain over here. The sand gets really deep when it gets this dry. Parts of the trail have been working me half to death! Its totally worth it to get to the fun part though.

    Was that taken with a fisheye lens? If so, attachment on an Iphone or an actual DSLR with a (8mm?) fisheye?

    I took it from my Gopro! Shot some vid yesterday. Wish those GoPro cams had a zoom saw about a 12ft gator yesterday in that river.

    The ride has me smiling the entire time I'm on it. Its very quiet, shifts spot on and very fluid. The rear shock is awesome soaks up everything but has almost no pedal bob! The Reba up front is of course also very nice and handles even the heavily rooted areas here in Florida. Very light for me as my old bike was around 38 pounds. With my pedals on this its close to 28 so I am running a ten pound difference! Im coming off an all mountain rig so not surprised at all. All ready losing body weight from riding this bike as it lets me excel on the longer trips as where my all mountain set up left me way behind my XC friends. The mechanic at my LBS says its a pretty bad ass bike for XC and said I made a hell of a choice.

    If you can get those gators to line up correctly would make for easier water crossing!
