    Smile The sun is out in Kodiak, and the riding is fine.

    A lovely day down here, if a bit cool. We rode some newer sections of trail I have been working on this summer. Everything was green and fresh and nice. Barny is back from fishing and our bud Helm joined us as well.

    Coming down off the mountain into the trees:

    A little off-camber chunk to keep it interesting:



    Lushness:



    BRRAAAAaaaaap!







    Almost down in town now:



    Here's a little bonus photo I took a few days ago on a research charter:



    Good times in the Great Land.

    Wow, looks like you had a beautiful day, and got in some great riding! Send some of that sunshine our way......

    I know Barny usually smiles while she's riding, but were some of these smiles the result of riding the zippy new Flux?

    Great photos. Liked the orca shot too.

    A bike feeling zippy does not equal being faster in all cases. On some of our trails I think she could get through lumpy sections with greater speed and maybe less effort on her Spot, but on smooth stuff, sections with acceleration, and on climbs the Flux is faster. The Flux really really turned out to be an XC race bike though she was able to clean everything she does on her Spot.

    I got some of the 5.5 rockers but now I can't figure out which bike to put it on.

    Another day, more miles of smiles.

    This switchback is steeper than it looks:

    Down and into the trees:
