    Turner Sultan most of the time. Siren John Henry 2 x 1 when I feel more like singlespeed but still want my climbing gear.
    Crunchy. Even in mud.

    Stock, and nearly brand new, 2012 Specialized Hardrock Sport 29 disc. So far, due to weather, scheduling and illness, all it has seen is about 7-8 road miles and a couple runs back and forth through the ditch at the front of my yard.

    I have/had a Jamis Ukiah, vintage 1993. Just had it tuned up at the LBS and gave it to my college-age son to ride.

    No sarcasm. I love seeing the bikes from the non mountain South. Always a lot hard tail SS, 29ers and rigids etc. At the same time also you can also ride a 35lb AM/FR rig around if you want because you don't have to huff it up many big hills. Guess it depends if you are going to do jump/drops or not because you can pretty much ride whatever you want on the trails.

    EVANS075. I'm a little concerned about your air pressure on your fork in that second photo.

    No worries, it's a coil sprung? Fox 36 Van R fork. What you are seeing is me coming off a 4 ft. box jump at speed right as I was landing. This picture doesn't show my body absorbing the impact like the next photo in the series shows. I would post the photo if I wasn't posting on my phone.

    I wondered both of those things. I'm like he's gotta be coming off a jump and that's probably a coil like the rear. Happy Trails!! Glad you're getting your full travel, man. That's good stuff.

    I agree...the more, the merrier.

    There's a hard-core dude I see riding all the time up here on a rigid SS. He motors around on the rocks. It's quite amazing.
