    Here are a few photos from this weekend's Sedona & South Mountain trip.

    The 5 Spot felt great going up and down. I never felt like I needed more bike

    Made some updates to my 5-Spot...just replaced today my Crankbrother's Krono with a KS LEV...hoping to have better performance. Last week installed a FOX 34 with a 10mm travel reducer to put it at 150mm. I have 5hrs on it...much better than my 32...real stiff through the descending banking corners and drops! But of my 5 FOX forks this is the first on to make the "Robot S&X" noise...oh well works great! Plan on getting new Stan's Flow wheels built during the winter and maybe a CCDB coil...would like to try some amateur endro racing.

    Some action shots are attached as well...bike works great...camera/camera man not so much...haha.

    Cheers,

    LncNuvue/jjkitt, crazy good pics there. Looking at action shots never gets old! haha. DT should be proud...but not surprised. :-)

    South Mtn/Sedona was on the early spring menu for me, but now I'm tempted to fanagle a hall pass sooner!!!

    Here's a quick vid of our quickie ride this morning. Too bad it started raining so we only got to go down once.

    is that a 44 or is it a 55? If the later, is it a 170mm and how's the handling with this taller fork?

    Big deal, I tried a new Endorphin and prefer my 5 Spot to it. It's a personal preference thing. I favor Turner build quality, handling, geometry, fit and the DW link Let's move on now.

    Tahoe trip from September.

    First pic is on the Flume trail in Tahoe and these guys on the trip those are some funny normal faces! YES that is a custom 5 bike rack I made, Sportworks double welded up a coupler w axle mount then attached the cheaper 2 bike tray rack. It worked great! I did Mr. Toads, Downieville, Flume, and few other trails in and around Squaw Valley. Great trip even with a last minute warranty 5 Spot setup!!!

    5 Spot at Pass Mountain, AZ

    Riding in AZ is great this time of year. A morning ride on Pass Mountain Trail, a gnarly gem of a trail in Usery Park east of Phoenix.

    Putting my faith in the type II rear D. If I start dropping chains, I'll end up getting a CRD. But wanted to see how it would work out without one first.

    Is that a Chubbie? How do you like it?

    Which fork is that? 55?

    I PUSH'd my RP23, its better, but still not a coil

    I've got a 55 microadjust TA. It works great, but I would like to try a evo.
    Biker? I don't even know her.

    Are you in the desert? I park at Target and start right behind at the trail head where bump n grind goes to the right and hop a long goes to the left. When I do this ride it's usually an out and back to the cross or I'll ride bump n grind first and then head to the cross. Typically it's my Tuesday early AM ride.

    old camp from home.....

    Got my final build in, so here are a few shots from a recent ride, unfortunately my new fork is in for warranty for a creaking crown issue but good news is that it will be coming back as a black float instead of a talas

    5 spot is still feeling great. I made a couple updates. Shorter stem, wider bars and a reverb post.

    Sorry SylentK missed your post. Yes, Avalanche Chubie shock and a 55 RC3 Ti fork. Both about 2 years old, first on my 6 Pack and now on the Spot. Great performance and pretty much trouble free. Recently put the stock RP23 on to compare, actually didn't feel too bad. Comparable to the Chubie on the climbs, not so much on the descents. Also started leaking after a couple rides.

    Spring in the San Gabes...

    Out on a training run with our HS MTB team, up Brown Mt. to the top, then 24 folks down El Prieto -- our local single-track testpiece. The Station Fire wiped this area out in '09, and since it came back, the native bush poppies are much more prevalent. Adds a splash of color...
