    Good job! It's not gnar, but hey.. :)

    So I love the HD. This may not be gnar, but man, the bike rocks. Here's me at the jumps today at Arastradero in Palo Alto.

    Lookin' great there Stripes! Great decision on your new bike, if I do say so myself! Nice attack position - perfect actually.

    Thank you for helping me make the decision You weren't kidding about it being a jumpy bike. OMG it flies too.. I have to slow down or I'm going to just go way too far too fast. The second time I did that jump I landed a bit funny and hit my shin with the pedal.

    I'm still working on body position over it. Since this is a lot smaller of a bike, I have to find the right balance point in my attack position, where I felt like I couldn't move around at all on the Ciclon.

    Ibis FTW!

    My 'classic' Mojo likes air more than any bike I've ever owned... not sure why, since the pilot is old and nervous about that sort of thing, lol. "Sloe" has enticed me into doing more than a few things I'd never done before.

    Thanks everyone. The photographer is my grom coach:


    He deserves some credit too (I took this photo, he took the ones of me).

    Where the heck is the "drool" emoticon? Those are awesome shots, especially the first one! I'm super-inspired now, and maybe a bit jealous, too . You go, Girl!

    ...I had a good time riding with you guys there, I hadn't pedaled that much in a long time. I sure wanted to get the landind nailed down on that hip jump :-) he's a good kid and your not that bad yourself. I'm looking forward to riding with guys some more...ralph

    Absolutely you were also great to ride with. We just need to make sure we don't hit there on Thursday nights with all the other ride groups. I need to get a better picture or even video of you guys jumping. I'm just hitting kickers right now, and I'd eventually like to go bigger.

    ibis's are so sexy. i remember when that was my dream bike, but there was something a little bit off about the geometry, since i ride XS sized bikes. still....hawt.

    My thoughts exactly!
    I've taken a Better Ride clinic and had a refresher with some Better Ride influenced folks, and am trying to incorporate that approach.
