    Making sure the frame made the first half of the trip ok.

    Does anyone know how to resize these on photobucket? They're either too big or too small.

    Nice shots!

    BC looks fun, but you missed out on an awesome NM heat wave.

    Is that a Nomad J is riding?

    If it makes you feel better it was pretty hot in Whistler.

    Yup, a V1 nomad.

    AN: I can't remember why he got rid of the Reign. It didn't break though.

    EB: Took a lot of editing to make them look decent. My point and shoot camera was having a hard time with the mid day lighting and the tree cover. Oh, wifey took pictures 3 &4.

    Ok, the real scoop... others might laugh but my favorite trail was Crank it Up followed by Heart of Darkness. They are both blue trails but super fun and awesome to warm up on. I got ahead of myself and almost ended my trip early on the second run of the first day. Once I got a little more comfortable in the air it was Freight Train to Dirt Merchant and A-line for flow type trails. Favorite technical trail would be Goats Gully and a little of Schleyer. It was pretty sweet, I hadn't seen Tony and Scott all week and on our last run of the trip we bumped into each other. I had to pick up the rental car at 5 so we did a race run down Freight/Merchant/Aline. What an awesome combo to finish on!

    In the "upload" window, also where you "choose files" you will see bar for choose size. I usually use the 800x600

    Hey Andy - I just got tired of the RP23 on the Reign and wanted something with a coil shock. You'll have to try and make it next year.

    Yeah, I guess it woulda been difficult to get a coil on that Reign.

    Think you can make it over to CO in August?

    Ha Ha , no, just kidding. For a blue run that was one of my favorite's too. When I was there a year ago it was like a mellow A-Line but the dirt was in much better condition and with all the thousands of vertical feet you'd do in a day it was nice to ride something smooth. You definitely got my respect by doing Goats Gully . I love the tech on that trail but you really have to stay on top of things to make it down safely . I remember a super G-out that was harder than the two on Pajarito's Natural Selection.

    Yup, Goats is pretty sketchy for sure. I think its the first rock slab roller your talking about. It has that gap in it so you have to keep a little more speed than you normally would. That trail definitely gets a high pucker factor.

    I'll be in NM in a couple of weeks, maybe like the last 10 days of August. You guys riding Salida?
