    It's not looking to be a very snowy winter, so I should be able to ride pretty soon - I hope! I'll get back to you on my seat situation. It's a carry-over from my old Range, and I didn't have trouble with it on there, so I guess I'll see. They are a great seat though, I also use one on my commuter track bike.

No shake down run yet since it is raining where he is, trails are closed. Hopefully this weekend when they are up here we can get out. He did get a parking lot test of it and is super stoked to get it on trail now.

    Ha Nice! I took my dads bike for a really quick parking lot spin. I know what my next full suss is going to be.... We hope to get it out today or tomorrow for a good shakedown run.

    tic toc. tic toc...... It is that time for me to sit and wait as time moves slowly while I wait for a 11-6 from push. I decided that my Balance was going to be my race bike for next year and figured a 11-6 could not hurt in the quest for going faster.

    My dad finally got a ride on his Balance. His shoulder was bugging him so he hasn't gotten to push the thing, but did get a shake down run in.
    His words: It just floats down hill, pedals great up hill. Cant wait till Moab!

    Man that piggy back on the Woodie looks like it's so close to the down tube.

    That was my thought too, and is still a slight concern for me. I put my fat ass on it and bounced it and it didn't touch. I know I was close to bottoming it.
    I'm planning on still pulling the shock and just double checking the movement cause it still bothers me when I see it. From what I could tell the shock doesnt move much up or down, just in and out. I didn't get the chance to pull it when he had it here.
