The Bronson guys didn't want to hear that their bike wasn't Santa Clause in high heels and got pretty upset on the 275 Forum basically denying that it was the Blur LT replacement and not the Nomad replacement. Watching him last weekend in Sedona was like seeing a different rider. He killed it on the HD in 275 mode hitting all the sketch lines and tech climbs before any of us. Cool to see the change that a bike can make in a rider.
    Must be better with 650b, I see thats how giant differentiate the SX Trance vs std Trance just bigger fork.

    Great to see its working well for them on 650b and the HD
    um interesting they have had flex in the Bronson too, I wouldn't have changed the HD for that rig anyway fwiw but nice stuff.

    I tried a similar setup on the HD @ 26" wheels 140rear flop chips / 160 front bike was terrible in 26" anyway, just out of balance weird in corners, just handled off, not like I haven't done this in the past either on other bikes, but I didn't like it on the HD with 26" wheels, 650b must balance it out better.

    Some pics from Sea Otter last week. First up one of my teammates not CURRENTLY sponsored by Pivot (hook us up guys!) on his way to 16th overall in Pro DH and also finished 10th in Pro Dual Slalom. Not bad for an attorney that works 50 hours per week...

    A different perspective showing how big that move really is (non Pivot rider, but better angle). Tricky run in and run out.

    Great looking new trail. I usually get down to Bend to ride about twice a year. Love the Wanoga side of the trails. I have not ridden this trail yet and will be there next Thursday. I can't find much updated on this trail online. Do you have to access it from DMH, or can you easily get there from Wanoga? We have 2 cars, so will be shuttling as much as we can over 4 days to get in as much riding as possible. Wanoga to Conkin is always in the plans for several descents, so I would like to add this one to it as well.

    Looks a bit similar to the bottom of SK, but with more jumps? If you can give me some ideas on good descents that would tie in this trail, it would be greatly appreciated. Can't wait until next weekend!

    Nothing too exciting. Just playing around on the rocks in the forest.

    Safe riding,

    Do a search in the Oregon thread. Tons of threads on trip planning and what trails to hit around Bend. Pretty easy to figure out and just about all the trails are great. Heading out tomorrow to Bend, can't wait!

    Sure, first thing to do is check in with one of the local bike shops, Bend has lots of good shops, especially on the Century Drive. Grab one of the local area bike maps. I would check out the Phil's trail system, lots of good riding there. Then head up to the Wanoga Snow Park. Tiddlywinks, Funner, and Tyler's are all incredible rides. Enjoy your visit to Bend.

    Thank you! I'm really looking forward to the trip! Recommend any shop in particular that might need a cold six pack?

    Sagebrush Cycles would be my first choice, then Pine Mountain Sports.
