    It's been good to me so far. It's required a few adjustments and I'm having a small brake issue but I would definitely buy again.

    What's your issue with the brake?
  • 05-14-2012
    codyh12345
    It went squishy on me and leaked a little brake fluid from the caliper. I am calling SRAM about it in the morning. No worries.

    They probably will. It looks like they are pretty aggressive at coming up with new bikes and I think more people will be hearing about Airborne. The flight crew seems to be winning a lot of races now.

    I feel the same way, but for the value it was a good buy and I can deal with the red color. I do love the Santa Cruz blue on my new bike though.

    BigDaddy, I would have gladly shelled out an extra ten bucks on the goblin to get the lime green ones.
    PS: on a side note the Goblin was raising some eyebrows on one of the local trails last night.

    How are those trails? We ride a lot at Brown County and Versailles but haven't made the extra drive to French Lick yet.
  • 10-16-2012

    They have two loops. The beginner loop is a nice climb and a great downhill section and off of that is the intermediate loop which I didn't have time to ride. It's definitely a place I will go if I'm in the area. Not enough there yet to make a trip out of it but if you're in Brown County it's definitely worth the drive over.

    Thanks for the info. It's still a haul from BC but we might do a long weekend where we hit BC, French Lick, and Versailles before coming home.

    That's a great pic. Mind if we use it for a POD on our Facebook page sometime?

    I got my Guardian out for a few laps after more than a month of deep snow. It was great weather, but the ground was a bit soft for the local singletrack, so I went out to the lake. As usual, the Guardian performed extremely well. The muddy parts were especially fun.

    I slapped some cross tires on the OEM wheel-set and did a 50 mile gravel grinder on Sunday. was alot less stiff the next day than normal when riding on the cross bike but found the 38/11 limiting and hard to keep up with guys running 50+ big rings.
