    Right pinky? I think that little bastard got most of us.

    Bravo Ralph! Brandon wadded in the same place about a month ago. He said it was because he was going so slow, but I think he was hanging on for dear life to stay on this ol' fart's wheel

    Thanks for putting these together. I am rather impressed by your music choices. Is this how you prepare for the work day?

    I like the raw footage, you can really hear the poor bikes taking a beating!

    As a small token of appreciation for rdhfreethought taking the time to share his videos, I thought I'd post my favorite photo sequence of the trip. I think the facial expressions speak for themselves and are indicative of how most "Knollfesters" felt making it down some sections of Goat Camp.

    The fifth photo reveals our resident Knolly Ninja in white must've sprinkled some Chili Dust on RDH just after your oh $h!t moment...much to your delight it seems by your own expression

    Personally, I appreciate seeing the missed lines by you, the cameraman, or whoever. I'm a hacker who on my best day doesn't ride as well as any of you; but seeing the missed lines reduces the intimidation and makes me wish I had come all the more.

    Wow - that's a whole different style of riding and trails than I typically ride. Slow, steep rock crawling. Looks very, very challenging. Now I know what you guys in AZ are talking about when you describe your Chilcotins v Endorphins. We have some chunky steep trails around here too, but not really like that. Personally, I am not sure I would enjoy that style of riding, since I tend to prefer speed and flow mixed with some comparatively low-grade tech. I think I would have walked a bunch of what's in those videos.

    Suspension setups for steep rock ledge descending is almost polar opposite of suspension setup for 25 mph rock gardens, turns and drop offs. Apples and Oranges. Remind me not to buy any of your used bikes after the torture you put them through! Looks like the Chili is THE bike for that stuff.

    In a couple of posts above, some say "it's what the bikes were built for..." That made me laugh. I can't think of anything more disparate than riding on Mt. Seymour/Cypress and riding the chunk on SoMo. Cool that it can do both, but I don't think the bike was built with SoMo in mind!

    Great videos and photos and good on ya for that gnarly/steep/chunky/slow stuff.
