    chunkfish

    Got a nice glamor shot over the weekend of Spearfish in Phoenix chunk.

    What trail?
    How do you like the way the 'fish handles the chunk?
    I'm extremely pleased with mine.

    It's the Corona Lome trail on South Mountain.

    I'm really pleased with how it handles. my previous XC bike was an El Mariachi, and was sometimes setup rigid, so it's not hard to improve in tech moments over that.
    I'm most impressed with the new Reba fork and am totally sold on the stiffness added by the thru axle and tapered tube. I thought that was a gimmick for sure, but it really makes a difference.

    Here's a shot of that same spot being ridden on the rigid El M. Chunk can be ridden on any bike for sure, but my body is not completely wasted at the end of a down hill section due to the nice geometry and suspension. I love that I can get out of the saddle and climb up a road or trail and it feels almost like a HT too.

    I think the grimace on my face on the El M shot and the relaxed look on the SF shot are a great contrast. Ahhhhhh.

    Were you parked at Pima Canyon on Saturday?

    I think I rode past you at the TH on my Dos right before my shifter crapped out on me.

    I love those two shots. I used to ride my rigid El Mar on SOMO, and those shots definitely echo my sentiment of riding with a little squish.

    That was probably me. I was hanging in the lot waiting for a couple of guys.
