    Thanks Sedona!



    Just got back from 2 weeks in Sedona. We had another great trip... My GF had never ridden a MTB anywhere, but coastal BC so the desert riding was a real treat for her and she's ready to go back!



    Here are some photos, but I warn you we are just average riders and hack photogs so don't expect too much:

    Thanks to Dave and Milan at The Fat Tire Bike Shop for being so great and keeping my GF's bike running perfectly after we ran into a few problems.

    We'll be back next year for more good times...
    Safe riding,

    Yes - P35s or Blunt 35s as I think they are being called now. Big tires and big rims.....they work great... Our frames are maxed out in the rear and we wouldn't go back to skinnier 26er rubber.

    Yep, one of my RIP Niners is sporting P35's front and rear. Makes 2.4" tires "ginormous" Can't wait until Light Bike will make a similar rim out of carbon.

    I don't get up there often but always seem to ride the same loop.

    bell rock pathway - bail - llama - little horse - templeton - cathedral - baldwin - verde school road

    Anyone have other suggestions that would cover 13+ miles with diversity?

    Start at Bike and Bean - Made in the Shade - Slim Shady - Highline - Baldwin - Templeton - Slim Shady - Bike and Bean. Not sure on the length, but that's a fun ride and can be extended if you need some extra distance.

    Thanks... How rude of me, didn't mention the great pics & story on this thread. Got some nice color combinations on those bikes. Jealous of your talented riding parter too Anyone I know wouldn't talk to me again if I took them on those trails.

    I felt odd man out when I wear my knee/shin guards. I took a good look at them after a crash last weekend and I can see that I have benefited greatly .
    Mountain biking experience, 12 months. I'm having a ball.

    For technical rocky riding I wear pads every ride. If I was riding buff XC terrain I would skip them.

    You can also get some light pads for protection without as much bulk - such as G Form.
