    Summer of Love

    You know we just don't see enough rider stoke in the forum. Mostly technical help. Well c'mon and pile on the riding photos. I've been getting out a bunch on my Maverick and I just fall in love every time. Everyone should have a bike this great.

    no fork guards on the blue durance ... one careful rider?

    are those the new fat alberts on the other durance?
    2.4" or 2.25"? much clearance at the seat stays?

    Yeah those are 2.4 Fat Alberts and they clear the frame very well. Sick tires.

    **** I BUNNY HOPPED that stream. Like a gentleman I jumped over the stream with my lady's bike.

    Great photos and good idea for threadage!

    I just spent the weekend in the Lagunas, east of San Diego, and managed three rounds of the Big Laguna Trail loop(s) on my SS 69'er with the Mav "Brown" DUC on it. The trails were perfect and I used both the Mav's travel-reduction and 100mm of plushnicity to good effect, over and over during my 30 or so miles of riding.

    I, however, took no photos.

    Someone mounted that bike backwards on a roof rack and the guards are somewhere in a ditch on 285 North of Fairplay

    ok, then here you go ..

    first up is a small enduro-style event at the tegernsee in southern germany (bionicon wallfahrt) - uphill riding based partly on time but also on riding skill on technical terrain and when it gets (very) steep, followed by trail descents that would be fab if they had of been dry

    and next up is a trip last weekend to livigno, buried right in the middle of the alps in northern italy. livigno has a bike park, but also has some fantastic trails away from the throng. these are pix of friends (one on a 7/5 to keep it on topic). the valley floor lies at 1850m, so even in summer there may be the odd snow field to cross (this one was at about 1900m, so not that high) ...

    not many of those here, at leat not easily accessible ... 2500m is doable, even 3000m if you're prepared to hike up high enough ...

    bring well trained braking hands
