    Dat's right! It was a great day for an over the top spin............Spencer Branch and Trace Ridge were the kind of fun that reminded me of Kitzuma (RIP) in it's prime.

    Thanks..........it's sort of a "mutt" frame, made up of a bunch of tubing that I had laying around. The TT and ST are True Temper, the DT is Columbus, the CS are Dedda, the SS are Nova, and the DO's are Surly. I built it after my last geared (yes geared) frame that I broke (TT) during ORAMM this year ......the difference being the 29'r front wheel. The HT angle is 70.5 and the ST is 71.5...........it handles like no other bike I've ever riden and makes me a more confident rider, the big front end is light and glides over most roots/rocks.

    Putting sprortbike wheels (17inch) on a dirtbike turns it into what's known as a supermoto. Huge sport in Europe that actually started over here in the 80's. Imagine carving a mtn road with the agility of a motocrosser that sticks to pavement like glue. Most fun you can have on two wheels with all your clothes on.

    Here's my Deals Gap pic of the summer. Sorry for jackin' yo thread SB.
