    Winter Riding

    Some pics of the last few weeks...

    Bobcat... after the temp dropped 20 degrees, snow is moving in, my chain broke, and there's still 6-7 miles to go.





    Hall... a sight you don't see there very often



    I rode a Redstone Dave's Turner Sultan at Hall, great bike...



    Joemtbr and kchri rode Hall with me this Saturday... Kurt noticed that Joe spent lot of time chasing cock around the parking lot...



    More Bobcat on Sunday... this time it was super windy and cold near the top.

    .

    So that's where kchri and Joemtbr went. Been awhile since I've seen those kids.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    ...and where were you this Sunday? New rp-23 and you're probably off riding on snow somewhere

    The Sultan is definately a contender if it had a Manitou Minute 120mm thru-axle fork on it. The Reba isn't on the same level as the rest of the bike. I still wish for slightly more freeride-ish geometry rather than xc, but with a 120mm fork it could be the bike. I still go back and forth on a bike like this or a light weight Intense 6.6 / Nomad / Reign type bike depending on my mood at the time...

    Hey, there are only so many POW days one can have in a lifetime. I intend on getting as much as I can with this years epic conditions. I did ride the grociery getter to do some errands, turned into 30 miles.

    You got the Uzzi, get a cruzer to complement it.
    You know my vote on your other options (Intense 6.6)
    My frame is paid for.... just waiting to put some stuff on it.

    It was a great day up there yesterday. We climbed up the Powerline road and were nearly blown off our bikes on the back of the ridge. I didn't know you were fellow MTBRs when you climbed past us. We saw you just before, or just after you took the above photo.

    I dunno - if you really love powder skiing there really is no substitute. You could always become a Snowbird - live in SLC Nov->March and then move back here for the spring & summers...

    Maybe if I made as much money as you do in the bacon industry.....

    I'm happy with D-town. This season has been great in Colorado, and our terrain is better.
    Although a few more suprise days like last Sunday at The Boat would be fab.

    ARGH, my work blocks cool videos. I'll check it when I get home.
    I need me a suga mama. I offered to be a stay-at-home dad, but no dice. Especially with my expensive bike, snowboard, scuba, beer, and truck/camper accessory habits. And I'm workin for that place in the Boat (we'll see 'bout that one).

    Not sure how many cars passed me yesterday with mountain bikes on the roof of their respective owners.....but it was a sh!t load. One of these days I am going to get back on the dirt and do the FoCo-Ginny-BlueSky-Loveland-FoCo loop of extreme fun-ness

    Just need it to dry up just a tad bit more.

    Joe, sorry to out you man...


    Powder was fantastic today... Super light and fluffy 9 inches.
    Tact is for people not witty enough to be sarcastic...

    Funny! I probably passed you, too. Drove the car to Bobcat, MTB on the back. Did Ginny. Continued by car to Loveland. Did DBB and BlueSky back to Fort Collins. All pretty dry. No excuse!

    Took the road bike, rode to Loveland and fetched the car. Darn wind in the afternoon. Could have used somebody to draft behind!

    Yeah, could have done all that on the MTB. But somehow I don't like my stubbies to see too much tar.

    yup, but its performance on the trail leaves something to be desired...

    I guess the saying is true, you don't forget how to ride a bike, at least Kurt didn't seem to...

    I'd love to ride your Sultan sometime... I've gotta get a job before I get a new bike though
