    My New Ride

    This is what I replaced my stolen Rig with. I am hoping to have it on dirt in the morning!

    Very nice Ross. Unless Salsa is now sending a big dog with each frame. Please find some place besides the back yard for this one!

    I don't understand why you guys with SS run hydraulic brakes, you never reach the speed where a hydraulic brake is necessary... I know the ultimates are sick but why not get the bb7 with danger boy levers or something?

    Maybe he likes the feel. Or maybe he wants weight savings. Maybe he just wants high end brakes. Who cares.

    Ruzz - nice ride.

    azzg - how would you know what speeds we reach? Maybe we don't like the noise of the mechanicals.

    A lot of us SSers ride Flag, National and other DH areas. Don't hate on us because you can't keep up with us.
    Why would I need more than one gear?

    Well you going to provide a first ride synopsis?

    Sativa, bikes are made to get dirty! Think we are spoiled compared to the rest of country when it comes to bike clean up.

    I had to rewrite this due to me not reading the last post correctly.

    When I switched to discs on my Voodoo I went to Ultimates also. Is that a 140 in the rear or the 160?

    Nice bike!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    O.K. I took it out to DC for a spin on Sunday. Wow does this bike feel great on the trail. Cornering is awesome, solid unified feeling, the fork is smooth. I was surprised how much more I liked the Fox over the Reba actually because I really liked the Reba.

    I clipped my pedal a couple of times on some rocks, I just have to get used to the new clearance. A few tweaks on seat and bar adjustments as well as some brake adjustments and I will be dialed.

    I don't know how to explain it but it just feels real good. I feel more confident on this bike than any other bike I have been on.

    See ya,
    Ross

    Yes we are! Many a rides we would come out looking like that in the winter time in Seattle. Makes cleaning up and getting into your car a lot harder/longer when you have to completely strip and re-dress. And when it's 40 out and you're soaking wet, things can get a little frigid. But you sure know you're alive during those times!

    Hey Ruz....it was great to see the bike on the trail on Sunday. Glad you feel good on it. We ended up heading over to Telegraph Pass then coming back to Pima Canyon. What a great ride.

    The right fit does wonders too. Sounds like you hit the sweet spot with it.
