    Today's ride at ******* *********

    sorry folks, i was abducted at beer bottle opener point, ordered to drive to ******* ***** blindfolded due to extraordinary security measures aimed not to upset certain steak holders. luckily i had my left nostril high definition camera, but i had to be careful with the identity of my captor - hence headless shot, but you must be used to it by now.

    At this secret location, the blindfold was removed and i was exposed to some carbon goodness and awesome trails. no mushroom, no beer, no bone fire. just awesome trails and great company. 5 times up the mile high and then down... stupid and achy breaky and what else not - oh my God... i was thinking - this must be better then sitting at work mashing at wireless keyboard...

    Suprisingly only a few wet spots and a lot of leaves on the trail, covering some unsuspecting angled roots - caution was our best friend... still lots of traction for over 3 hours of hammering... fall colours were stunning. mile high climb started to get under my skin on the 5 try... but well worth the following going down... we came across only another pair of bikers with equally stupid grins on their mugs... how could we miss this perfect november day for riding... it felt so good...

    apologies for lack of food, mushroom, garbage, wood cribbed dirt jumps and headless riders pics. this outing was all about simple human addiction - just riding...

    only before and apres ride pics allowed...

    Mile high? Yeah, I know where that is. Not too far from the Annihilator.

    Did you do Heart attack hill? I heard that you enjoy climbing, so if you didn't do that one you need to go back and ride it again.

    You showed some potentially identifiable features, such as a black BMW sedan and what appears to be a Silver Subaru Tribeca with a trailer hitch and a floor pump in the back. There's also some identifiable buildings in the mid and background. You gotta censor those things out if you want to keep it a secret!

    Looks like the seatpost comes with a custom added 3 degree back bend.

    Which conveniently provides the answer to Biobanker's question about the flipped stem, since the bigger wheels sometimes necessitate the flipped stem to keep the same geometrical relationship of contact points from a 26er to a 29er, for those who want their setup to be an aggressive XC position. All bikes on display in this thread so far very nice XC machines.

    Yes, we have a couple of riders out here in BC shredding on Tallboys. Almost any bike is capable of wondrous things in the hands of a sufficiently skilled rider.
