    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.

    Here's a pic from a quick ride the other day. There are times that I want to go back to air just to save weight but I'm really loving them coils!

    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...
