    My X-5. Pumpkin.

    I got my X-5 about a year ago. The bike is amazing.

    I got a Rocky Mountain Hammer Steel SS 29er about 2 months ago and have been riding it every weekend since, except for 1 easy X-5 ride. Well, I went to Ringwood, NJ today and rode the X-5 in the rough stuff after riding mostly x-c for the past couple months on the SS 29er... The X-5 can do anything. Incredibly nimble, stiff and able to rail rock gardens all day. Unreal. I don't know if it's from riding the SS 29er or what, but today I felt like I was riding a monster that just destroyed everything in it's path. I love this bike.
