    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:thumbsup:

    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.

    time to confess your actions. Some will hate, and others will forgive, but you will not rest till you confess.

    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:thumbsup: Let's move on now.

    Not worried about getting punched in the face if you ride in AZ?

    I think that turned out nicely.

    You never know until you try. Good thing you didn't sell the Turner first.
