    Big Top Radness

    I live in AK and this is my favorite trail in Anchorage. I usually take my 5 spot up here, but yesterday upon reaching the lower dome like hill in the background, and it being one of the last sunny days of summer before the fall rain and winter comes I kept going. Definitely a lighter ride up, but couldn't rip like I can on the Spot. I have to say though, the Big Top let me ride the chunk and rock drops with confidence, just not as fast. Racing Ralphs are a little suspect up here too. 4400 ft descent. I guess what I'm trying to say is, this bike is pretty rad.

    That is a great view! I'm thinking I may have to have a big top in my future too...

    I'm gonna have to ride that trail with you when I get up there. Of course, by the time I'm up there it probably won't be rideable again till June or later...

    Appreciate the stoke. That is nice.

    Word

    Let me know when you are up. Not many people up here are willing to go through this sort of misery for the sort of ride down it is. IMO, best we have in Anchorage.
