    Dude, that is a seriously gorgeous bike! What kind of tires do you have on it? I've got some Panaracer FR 2.4s that, when I first saw them, thought, "Whoah! Tractor Tires!" These things are actually 2.55 inches wide, with a monster tread. If they fit on your bike (clearance wise), they'd look great. And more cushion for that rigid ride. I run mine at 12psi in the winter to stay on top of the snow.

    You've got Shiggy beat, hands down.

    Not that that's a bad thing.

    Naaaaaaaaaa,

    I could NEVER out do Shiggy. He rides logs way better than I can (and I have the proof with my bad ankle), and has a bigger shop with I think 3.4 million tires (give or take a few).

    I'm not sure

    I am not sure what they are, but you are right. Slack angles. It steers fine the way it is and I'm happy with the bike.

    They are......

    The tires I have on the bike are WTB 2.5 Weir Wolves I got from Shiggy (If you look closely you can see "Property of the Mud zone" still on them). I also have a set of Panaracer 2.5 Megablasters that I run. I have about 2mm (or less) of clearance in the front fork so right now I can only go up to 2.5". I plan to get a new Surly disc fork and have it powdercoated the same color and have better tire clearance.

    Well,

    I'm running a FSA CNC afterburner 180mm crankset (and SQtaper FSA BB too), FSA 32t ring and a FSA "The Pig" headset (unsealed BMX)

    I tried to get one.....

    I tried to get a flamed seat but there were some issues with a certain company (names with held) so I had the WTB instead.

    That definitely looks like a John Deere tractor.

    I think I recognise that turtle in your pic, or at least his cousin. There are a lot of turtles at Camp. Some are quite large, and mean. One tried to bite my foot as I tried to get him to move off the trail. Didn't know turtles could move that fast.

    What trails did you ride at Camp? If you haven't done Ball-o-nails, Dead Elvis, or Can-o-corn, do them the next time you go out there.

    Ball-o-nails - there is a large ball of rusty nails hanging from a tree on the trail.
    Dead Elvis - I think the trail was completed on the same date as his death.
    Can-o-corn - I've never heard why.
    Merlin - named after the trail makers dog.
    Advanced Trig - advanced terchnical skills helpful. Fun trail if you're sadistic.
    Port-o-Potty - may have been a potty on the trail once.
    Yucca- yucca on trail.
    Airport loop - self explainatory.
    Twin Bridges - see above.
    Budda - Zen like trail.
