    I Love Colorado

    Not a ton of words, just wanted to share my last two rides with all you people who have a Job.

    Last Friday Pasta man and I rode up to 9800, with just patches of snow for the most part Except for he 2-3' snow drifts. Good day to take the bike for a walk.

    Today Baker and I up at the preserve again, 3" fresh pow with very little ice below, twas a perfect day to ride, even if it was only 20 F. Enjoy the pictures

    Sometimes you just feel like a kid, I wish I could have gotten out there today.

    Glad you are making the most out of unemployment. Sometimes I wonder what's worse, working every day and living vicariously or not having a job. Great pics.

    Man, if we have another winter like this one next year, I think I'm going to need a real snow bike!

    Joe, you've got the MH in the snow thing down--I think it's time to show your stuff in Palmer Park tonight!

    Great pics!

    I agree. I especially like the sequences.

    Thanks for the ride, Joe. Time for me to take a day or two off. My legs are toast.

    I thought you knew

    Yeah, I picked it up late Nov. Parts on bike really make it a R9, all SRAM X-9, Mavic Cross Max, Lyric Air converted to U-turn and LX cranks with Phil Wood Bearing. Could not pass it up.

    Now all I need to do is sell that New SC Blur LT frame so I can pay myself back.

    Dam,

    Went and did flow dog and stoopid yesterday, and had some fun freshies. Met up with a guy on a fixie, man was I humbled! He was a motoring machine. He did pretty well for his first time on stoopid, covered with snow, on a fixie and no suspension, studly!

    It's funny to see Baker's tracks--especially when Joe took a different line and you see one set of fatties and one set of "skinny" tracks. I need a bike with an endomorph!

    I was telling Joe how neat it was to follow him in the fresh snow. The really obvious tracks pointed out how differently we approach the trail. He tends to roll over obstacles while I tend to dodge them.

    And, yes, you need some endo's! Doesn't everyone?

    My tires are not small

    I'm running a 2.6 Kenda front and a 2.35 Big Earl back.

    Great video Gram, enjoy the fact I can full screen and it is still a decent picture, trail seems alot easier when you can't see all those big rock.

    K-man, sorry about last night, I was afraid of the cold and wanted to ride today instead. Gonna get messy in the preserve in the afternoons for the next couple days, are you off next monday for the holiday? Thinking a double shuttle day if enough people are off with a BBQ after.

    Dam,

    Great video Pasta! (except for those damn squeaky brakes!)

    My own version of "freshies" (as hikers don't count, right?) yesterday up north.

    It wasn't terrible, but I am still sick of winter.

    Getting defensive about your size Joe?

    No need to apoligize--it was your loss! We did miss you though. As much as I love Palmer at night, we should do one of the next night rides in Monument.

    I am going to put on my 2.4 Rubber Queens tonight!

    Looks like I am going to get a chance to test and review a Yeti 7 for a couple of weeks, excellent!
