    Gravity, not just a good idea, it's a law.
    The only one consistently and constantly applied, no exceptions.

    Brown Canyon

    This is Brown Canyon, one of the nicer trails in the Sierra Vista area. The downhill singletrack is very flowy and zen like ! Plus you can connect it up with a few other climbs and illegal alien trails. The only bad part is the amount of trash left behind in certian areas by the aliens .

    Yes

    You COULD do it on a geared bike, but I wouldn't reccomend it!

    Sorry, no pics yet

    I'm not sure the exact route that the IMBA defines as its "epic", but the loop we usually do takes about two hours, give or take depending on who goes, weather, etc. I'm not claiming to have "cleaned" the whole thing, as the Link Trail is quite steep and rocky, and the switch backs on the AZ trail are also pretty tough, and the water bars near the top usually get me. My geared buddies also seem to be off and walking in the same spots however. You can also do another loop around Mendez pass that could bump your ride time to four hours or so. Definitely worth the trip down. MBAA race #4 is also being held ther as well, I believe. Oh yeah, I usually run 34X18 FWIW.
