    More livin' the Highline

    It's hard to help livin the Highline when it pedals up mountains so well! It's been said before that THIS is turner's best-pedaling bike, making it the most pedalingest ever. Not sure if the pedaling is good enough to be the CK-Lake Pleasant bike though...today then was a test, to see if the pedalingest can be maintained.

    When you start this late, you need a little extra boost.

    The most pedalingest bike gets a new lighter fork! More XC!

    Up through the Juniper to the Pines. Can you say PERFECT temps?

    Note the pic where the poor soul did not have the best pedaling, if you can pedal faster and better you can avoid danger.

    And somehow managed to pedal to the top, no doubt due to the superior XC pedaling.

    Then ride down....remember to pedal though.

    Is this the end?

    Looks like your front rotor is installed backwards.

    Good observation, it's that way because it would HOWL (and vibrate) like a banshee if it wasn't. Wierd thing. It's not an Avid rotor, it's a Hayes rotor, but it's adequately spaced (the braking track of the codes is a lot smaller than the hayes). The tendancy seems to be gone with the new fork, so I'm gunna flip it back and see if it finally works correctly.

    Nice pics, looks like a perfectly fine XC bike to me

    Good luck with that fork, I really really hope the 09's are better than the 08's were. I am patiently awaiting my 4th set of lowers and a new RC3 cartridge for my 08

    Now the reason it seemed so easy to pedal was because you are now in the post glory days of C2C2C.
    I went out to Sedona and rode from Jordan road all the way around thunder mountain out to lost watch, deadmans, cockscomb, and back and that place seemed, uh, so flat.
    Nice looking ride.
    There is a big difference between ripping and skidding.

    I can't believe you took that on 396. How many hikers, small dogs and single speeders did you run over?

    Strong work, that is a big ride.
