    Its a Rune 650b and the Pike is a 160 Solo Air. Here is a review I left of the Pike on another site!

    "I set sag in full open mode, 65lbs gave me -25% sag. That is way off the mark of the chart. I did several loops on the same trail today trying to dial in the fork going from the recommended 80psi down to 65psi and everything in between. I like it but by no means blown away. It is a good fork no doubt but with all the hype I am left a bit puzzled. I would say it is on par with the Fox RC2 damper. I am not saying its a bad fork, I do like it.


    The good-

    Weight
    Controlled while cornering, stays planted in rough
    Big hits, ramps up great and feels bottomless (hucks to flat WTH)
    Plush in initial stroke

    The bad-

    Looks (not terrible but I prefer others, never cared for all black)
    High speed chunder was a bit better than the CTD 34 but not by much. A lot of feedback in the hands and blurred vision is not good. This is where the Float RC2 & Van is superior
    Lack of HSC"

    What time did you meet the gem? I usually start off from the boat ramp at 0630ish on Saturdays.

    I was just skimming through this thread and found a pic of myself, the pic looks great, but I look to be struggling. Any way, thanks, Baja.

    Here is one from Mt. Woodson, you probably know the rock. Jay Reilly took the photo.

    Awesome pix. My first time up the potato chip (hiking) I saw this guy riding from the top DH. That's what got me into mtn biking.

    I've grown to really appreciate that view. I'm usually gassed at that point after climbing Johnson's or Chumash. Or Llajas/Oil Wells/Sea Shells. Beautiful area, for sure.

    Awesome pic, where was this taken from? Santa Barbara? I wish they allowed bikes on Santa Cruz and Santa Rosa island, would be some epic riding out there even if it is mostly fire roads.

    (Cross posting from "Passion")

    Sycamore Canyon.



    Our friend Paul climbing on his new Czar. The area is still very much blackened after this past springs enormous wildfire. It makes it seem as if you are riding on another planet. Waiting for winter rains to bring back the vegetation that once covered this area. Hopefully we'll get gentle / light rains to keep from having mudslides. Good weekend for riding in SoCal.

    great shot- you really get a sense of the grade going up that- kind of hard to tell if its Guadalasca or Backbone but its promising to see the green coming back. So no closure or is it unaffected since its a state park?

    All of the state park is open, but the area from the parking lot at Wendy to just past the culture center/bathrooms is "closed" since its a national recreation area. I never noticed it was actually a separate area until now.

    Zero... um, yea. We drove out from WLA, and met two friends that drove down from SB, got our gear on, and rolled over to the Wendy gate only to discover what you have noted. None of us had any idea this little 1.2mi section was "national".

    Its BB. We climbed Guad and then dropped down BB. So, even though the rider is climbing here, its really mostly at DH trail - as you know. Yes we've been out to Sycamore a few times since the fire, the first time the day after it reopened. I hope we get just the right amount of rain this year, because if we do spring time might look amazing with new green and flowers that normally show up. All of that against the blackened soil and manzanita.

    I think the beach entrance is part of the state park, which I thought extended to the beach across PCH as well. I've only started there once, but if I recall you have to pay for parking there.

    Yeah as I sat at the Wendy entrance yesterday I'd say about a third of the people arriving at the trail (way fewer than normal) turned back. Not sure what the other entrance down Potrero was like. The signs weren't deterring many people though...

    Probably true- i usually dont want to pay $12 for the day parking there anyway. Only bummer will be the lack of bathrooms if the campgrounds are closed..

    Funny, I always thought of it the other way around - BB being the climb and Guad being the drop.

    The beach and campground are both definitely state operated. I like starting from there - pack the car with some asada and beer, have yourself a post-ride BBQ and swim. Plenty of parking on PCH just above the beach, but yeah, $12 to park in the lot.

    I ride there for a quick ride and a change, especially when it's mid-day and it's kinda hot....I found one thing out. Don't park your vehicle backed-in to the space, unless you want some 'extra' attention!
    That sidehill single track that goes south to behind the Strauss brewery has been really upgraded. I detect the influence of Rich Julien there. That guy really gets around!
