    Mr Chrysler was there and rockin the singlespeed. 18 miles of White Ranch is painful this early in the season. Only one of the rails of the seat popped out during a high speed encounter with black ice...Hidden so perfectly. After about 15 minutes we tweaked it back into position.

    I think maybe a couple extra hours for Mustang/Maverick/Rawhide etc. We were out there about 4.5 hours including a couple mechanicals and lots of stops for me to rest, and to chat and enjoy the scenery!!!!!

    You guys are badasses! Nice work. I found a patch of slickery ice on Roxborough loop, but it wasn't hidden... I'm just THAT uncoordinated. Thanks for the great pics!

    Does that old Manitou fork count as rigid?

    You guys freaking animals for riding the hardest WR trail sections on those bikes, the close up photo of mountain goat making that steep right drop is sick. That section has been a nemesis of mine on a 6" bike for two years. 20+ tries, four cleans.

    That's a tough section. MGE almost cleaned it all. He probably would have with a 2nd try. I doubt I'll have the cajones to try it - it's been awhile. I chickened out on a few things!
    The Manitou doesn't really work, so I count it as a rigid! MGE was asking the same thing!
    I will be switching it to a true rigid at some point this spring.
    Anyone with recommendations - chime in. It's a '91 GT Zaskar frame. Keep in mind I am "budget minded"! Especially since it looks like I'll be springing for a new geared full susp here at some point as well.

    Not there anymore. Maybe a little bit of mud in the tread of Maverick and everything is 100 percent rideable at this point.
