    Resorts this weekend?

    Anyone heading up to the resorts? I want to go up, but since it will be my first time riding in Colorado at the resorts it would be nice to have like a riding buddy haha. Which resort would you say head to for the first time? Keystone? Trestle?

    Nationals are going on at Sol Vista this coming weekend, so if it's your first time and all you want to do is ride...then stay away from there. If you want to watch some cool sh!t...then that's another story.

    I haven't been to Trestle yet, but Keystone has much more beginner friendly trails than Sol Vista (I'm assuming you're semi beginner, but I could be wrong). However, the Greens and Blues at Sol Vista are all rollable jumps and smooth berms, so almost any skill level can still handle them...just maybe more intimidating than more difficult, I guess.

    As far as features, Keystone has more wood bridge features (but not a ton) and Sol Vista just has a TON of berms and smooth, well built, jumps. If you do end up going to Sol Vista, Silky Johnson (a green) will put t.he biggest smile on your face.

    I would say I'd ride with you, but I gotta stay away from downhill for a bit...long race coming up at the end of the month.

    thanks nick. I'd say I'm more intermediate to expert. Haven't ridden in a while so I might be intermediate. Berms are awesome thats all I have to say about them haha

    Trestle. There is a Fat Tire Festival in Winter Park this weekend (I think), so there might be a few extra people on the mountain.

    That just means you need to get there for the UG parking by 9 (not roof rack friendly).

    I like the UG parking...car stays cool and not bad to have a bagged lunch if you bring a chair

    Silly as it sounds, that's one of my favorite things about riding there, it's SOOOOO nice to cool off at lunch!! (and my dog thanks me, cause he gets to come along now!)

    I have to say I had a blast @Trestle last week. This was the 1 time riding it Now i need to get a new Bike The Old KLEIN was just not doing it. The UG parking is a plus i parked there 3 of the 4 days i was there well worth it but it did rain every afternoon last week.

    Not sure how people rode the greens on a N/S Bike. How did they do this in the old days?

    New Post coming soon What DH Bike is good for the FR? J/K

    I picked it out all ready i just have to save now.

    Old Klein for sale any takers?

    EDIT :::Forgot to add that My Klein was an old manta Pro F/S and it was still not enough.

    This man has seen the light, and that light shines downhill. Next thing you know, you'll refer to a 160mm travel, 33lb bike as an "xc" bike, ha ha.

    That would be THE epiphany coming off of a Mantra (?!?!). But, I'd never insult a 6", 33lbs bike by calling it "XC". It's "trail bike" you friggin' n00b!

    Yeah. It needs to be 6" and under 30lbs to be a XC bike.

    So your new Reign is out of this group right? Oh, saw an old Van RC that was just rebuilt on PB for $75 in your size.

    Oh man, I've got my bike definitions for the front range all wrong! My small bike must be a "super all trail cross mountain slalom D" rig, then.
