    I'm a roller kind of guy. Leaving the ground is plain scary for me, hence the reason for getting a 2006 Preston FR.

    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Not as big as some of what's up there, but then it's not as big a bike. And well, neither are my balls, apparantly. phot credit: some self timer, some other people. if you took the picture, you know who you are.

    Shimano M647, Lake MX-165 shoes with Specialized Body Geometry insoles. Very comfortable combo! Same pedals on my hardtail. The shoes are decently stiff for pedaling, but have awesome Vibram shoe tread for those off the bike hoofing it times.

    hey man, is that a 150mm or 180mm travis on your preston? what do you think of it? i have a travis 150 that i am going to use for a build. right now i have not decided on whether to build a preston, bottlerocket, or lay down the dough on a heckler. i am leaning towards the BR but havent made up my mind. i have a sherman on my current bike and am very happy with it. are you happy with your decision on the travis?
    Thanks, John

    Scrubby, you need a cape. :P

    brokenchain, I'm assuming that question is directed at me, correct? I actually just swapped the 2006 Travis Single 150 out for a 2006 66 Light last weekend. The Travis 150 was a perfect match for my Preston. I don't care what anyone says about Manitou, that fork has held up great and is much more responsive to technical terrain than the 66 is. However, the 66 is much more plush, and probably too much fork for that bike. My Preston feels a little to raked with the 66, but I suspect that a travel reduction will put things back in check. My advice is to rock the Travis 150 on the Preston and a 170+ fork on a BottleRocket. Your geometry will be better off that way. My $0.02.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    this is the perfect way to see what bike to go for. i have been torn between the preston and the covert both have their advantages of coarse but seeing scrublover,s pics i think the covert would be sweet. i will thrash my coiler for a while yet and if i dont go any bigger by the end of the year, covert it is. pics are worth a thousand words and what is big for one is small to another. every manufacturers forum should have a thread like this as it might help those confused souls like me. big up for transition and lelebebbel,s masterful idea

    Great thread Lele! Some of the riders shown got more air than I did on my dirt bike! Kinda' bummed me out.

    I have been winding down my search for a new freeride bike- Transition is back on the list. Thanks!

    I couldn't help but notice the gold goodies on your rig..........and you mention Montana. By chance are the golden levers and bashring from Tyler @ Twenty6(formerly PRD)? I know he is from your state and i figured maybe you were supporting a local business Nice shots in this thread here from everyone. Ride On- E2

    scrublover- what size is your covert and how tall are you? i'm debating between a small and medium (i'm 5'10" on a good day and like to be able to flick the bike around and pull out some jumps and drops)

    BBQ with a dash of Urban sessioning

    We had a happy hour / bbq / urban session at our house last night after work. Me and my buddies steve and Jon (ok, they did most of the work) built a 12' ramp out of 2x4's and some leftover scrap wood from my deck project. We carried the ramp across the park from my house and leaned it on a guard rail. I've been eye balling this potential gap for a long time, but never really had the cajones to hit it. It's about 15 feet to clear the park bench and the little wall.

    Last night was the perfect setting and we did a bunch of sessioning on this and another section. A few pics on the GM......the landing was like buttah! Me in the first 3 and Armando on the GM in the last pic.

    Cheers,
    EB

    Make it happen, Nickle.....I certainly feel that riding the steeps takes as much skill (if not more) and cajones as getting some air on the bike.

    One last shot from our bbq / urban huckfest of me jumping over my buddy, Jeff, sitting on the park bench. Love the graffitti on the wall.....that's livin' in the hood, yo!

    Okay, it's done. Thanks for the motivation, ebxtreme. The "Transition Bikes Rolling Big Lines!" thread can be found here. Considering the message under your name and the impressive pics you've already posted in this thread, I imagine that you'll have some sick content to contribute.

    climbingbubba, that kinda looks like the Santa Barbara area. If it is, I'm out that way on travel occasionally. We might have to hook up for a ride.

    Tried out my new remote flash setup today @ post canyon. I'm still trying to figure out how to set it up to make it look good. Too bad that the flash batteries died after like 5 shots...

    here's Jon on a Double, build up for trailriding with a Z1:
