    Yesterday, Johnson Pass

    Took Suzi and her new Vicious on their maiden voyage into Johnson Pass yesterday, Sunday. Snow conditions were marginal but it was still good, especially the warm temps!

    What a super little bike. Love the paint job and the setup. Looks like fun time had by all.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    Thanks, it did build up very nice. We used the same dimensions for Suzi's bike as The Queen Bee's Vicious, only went with a little taller headtube. The paint scheme was Suzi's call, when I asked her if she'd like Vicious to do anything else besides the purple/pink she said "do you think he could put some lightning bolts on it"? ....... BTW, I was able to build her bike with the Surley Mr. Whirly crankset as they've FINALLY come available, reminds me of the old Cook Bros.F type cranks, very unique and nice.

    Beauty of a bike rick, that is one sweet snow bike. Suzi should be proud.

    You rode snow yesterday probably around the same time Leonard and I were riding a mix of dry packed sand and buffed singletrack (still loving the Sultan BTW).

    I,um,....cough,gave Carl some dimensions one day at his request (a while back) about a sno-bike he wanted to build, one of the parameters was NO assym. chainstays ( never even thought someone'd consider an assym. fork) so no, the rear stays are symmetrical, always have been...

    Holy crap, you're up early (or maybe late ).

    Leonard should be going home right about now. It's always good to ride with "sea level" folks, it actually makes me feel like I can keep up.
    Come on down anytime.

    I can't stay on here long, I'm off for some back country snowboarding up near Silverton.
    Have a good day.

    Have you run Large Marges on that little beauty yet?
    I'm guessing with the SnowCats you aren't having any chainline/tire clearance issues.
    100mm BB??
    Cool to see some folks are still grooving on steel!

    Suzi's bike hasn't seen the Lg. Marges just the 'cats. The frame handles 80/65mm rims no problem. We originally designed the frame around the 83mm Remolino rim. And yep they've always had the 100mm BB shell

    Up late was the correct choice. I was working on my dirt bike and didn't realize it was so late.

    LOL! But in the winter, you don't have to deal with the mud and the parsnip.

    The conditions weren't ideal 2 weeks ago, although fun, but when they're right JP can really be fun.....
