    5 Spot Vid

    Took the 5 Spot down a fun, twisty trail over the holiday and shot a little video. I hadn't ridden this trail for years and was stoked to be back on it. It feels like you're riding a one-person bobsled.

    The top:




    Fun bermshot at the bottom:

    Hmmm, looks familiar but I can't quite put my finger on it. The grin on your face says it all!

    I'll probably be in town in the next couple of weeks if you want to get together for a ride or a shoot.

    Did the 'one person bobsled' reference tip you off or was it the picture of the flag?

    Cool video!

    Looks like the video on Turners website for the older models. Cool video though-that trail looks fast and smooth.

    Why would he need a new seat.....because his has a little rip on the back? SS seems to be riding just fine despite having a torn saddle.....the horror!!

    Sweet video dude. I gotta work on my manuals more this year.

    I'm running 180 rotors and weigh a buck seventy. The Martas have plenty of power for me and are really good brakes for my trail bike. Manuals are little difficult because they grab hard!

    They also make a 203 Marta rotor if you want to go bigger ....

    Some more stuff

    Here is another couple shots from our trip to Noble Canyon over the break. Snowy and cold up top but great conditions down lower:





    The digs we stayed at plus the truck loaded up with Spots:



    A couple runs on the Spot and then another on the DHR for good measure. I think we found an 'aqua-rock' on the trail. Please excuse the Intense content:



    Again, the vid quality is better if you go here and click on 'watch in high quality'
