    Well, I did have to brush off the loose stuff ...you know, so I could figure out where to put the chain lube.

    Yes, I like the subject matter.

    Polished bling against the sofa does little for me. Let's see those workhorses.

    Well if it ever rains here on the Front Range, I'll be sure to snap a pic of my Yeti with some trail decoration on it. But since its so freaking dry around here, barely a coating of dust on it.

    Nice stuff.

    Cheers,

    Harp. I'm not even sure what all that crap on your bike is. Looks like dirt but for the life of me I can't figure out how one might go about getting all that dirt to kick up on a trail and stick to a bike in massive clumps. I'm befuttled I'm guessing it requires some kinda of additive, a chemical reaction of some kind....( Phoenician here )

    No trees. No mud. No humidity. No deerflies. No blackflies. No.. uh, wait a sec...

    Good stuff. Is that the spot I see in Fagerlin's vid?

    you're bike is pointing the wrong way

    Looks like a pretty tricky section to climb. I recently rode the National Trail in Tempe and really enjoyed the gentle climbs and fun twisties, but I was unprepared for the tire slashing rocks and tube penetrating cactus.

    Just rattlesnakes, javelina, scorpions, killer bees and...uh......

    I must confess. That is not my pic or my bike, but that is a small seciton on National in Phoenix. I have never taken pics on that trail b/c I am too busy trying to keep upright, so....I cheated

    -about the video, I have no idea.

    Yeah I think Pete has a National video.

    No doubt there is some great riding, but holy cow Phoenix is so freaking hot that I don't know how you ride. I guess you get used to it....

    Not exactly full of mud, but...

    ... you should have seen it half an hour earlier, before a MASSIVE downpour basically washed it clean.

    and this was two hours after I took delivery, so my ride never got to experience the couch-bling stage. it was never coddled, never cooed at, never fussed over for a little scratch. it's developed quite the chip on its shoulder because of it. it now steers for mud, then dares me to clean it off. stabs me with cable ends whenever i do, and steadfastly refuses to shed the skin-most layer.

    god, what a great bike!
