    Northern California, West Side of Folsom Lake. Granite Bay Trail. We've had a wet fall so there's an explosion of green this year.

    Yeah, no kidding. I haven't been out to Salmon Falls, nor SlyPark etc all fall (Being on the DL hasn't helped) I bet all those places are popping green too.
    That's actually Central trail just coming off the top. Had the Camera, way off the trail for a different perspective.

    Went for an old-school ride today. A little sore but loved it.

    My 20 year old El Habanero. I'm running a new-fangled 1x8 set-up with two toothed rock guards! It really is still stiff and responsive as ever.2016/2017 Picture Thread "Post Em"-img_2857.jpg

    If it's not powered solely by you, it's a motorcycle.

    I have ridden my buddies Zeus many times with this geo and rides fantastic.

    Thanks for the info. So, how about the bike on the right leaning against the beat up old car that you posted above? Same bike as the blue one I originally asked about?

    I'd be curious to see and hear more details about the Custom El Cap.

    2012 vs. 2017

    This is my Zeus as is now having just switched over to Eagle 1x12 and my Zeus as it was in 2012 over 5 years ago. Finding it really hard to drop money on one of those fancy new carbon bikes. Still loving this bike.

    Funny how when I built this bike my options for tires were Pacenti and rims were Pacenti. That was it! 2012 items still kicking: the frame, the King hubs and headset, XO crank amazingly, XTR brakes. The bike has had its changes over the years but still rocks.

    I forgot the fork. Original TALAS as that was the only thing to buy then. Converted years ago from TALAS to Float. Same fork.
