    KB, loved this vid the 1st time.....glad you brought it back. The way you hop up Somo like a rabbit is in direct contrast to the painful climbing I experience at the moment... Good stuff... Thanks for re-posting.....

    Did Fox make you pull the post the first time or something?

    I can watch this video over and over. I even replay parts thinking to myself "he didn't just do that." Great video!

    Now would be a good time to admit that I taught you everything you know, Kenny!
    But seriously, that's just ridiculously jaw-dropping.

    Sure is!!

    Urban Dictionary:

    1. diesel

    Awesome or strong, as in physical power. Also - great, cool, or sexy.
    "He's diesel."
    "She's diesel."
    "Its diesel."

    (Wait.... unless R. meant that I emit noxious fumes when I ride?
    Daaaaang! I can't win!!!)

    Well you had the good sense to LIKE Samuca!
    Yeah, that was one fun ride, Spring Fling of '09. Sorry to have missed this one!

    It was a little sweet for me for the most part, and I certainly wouldn't blend them together in a glass, but as an alternation with the MacAllan whiskey I had it was really good.

    Glad you laughed at that.

    Looks like there's new shoe on the market as well...the 5-10 anti-gravity shoe. Nice riding indeed! My compliments to the chef.

    I can see why they'd want to keep the "front wheel drive"fork under wraps. Nice stuff Kenny!

    KRob; Not sure about how much of a review I can give yet but in a nutshell; I LOVE that fork! 2 stage TALAS is simple and functional plus it's adjustable in 10mm increments (mine is set for 180-140mm). The new cartridge steup is very nice too,not having to stop and remove the lower cap whenever I wanted to adjust the HiLo Comp is a big plus (made tuning pretty tedious in the past). I'll see if I can post a more detailed review later, just gotta get the OK

    Here's where I get a lot of my stuff if I can't find it locally. Stinkweeds is my fave local shopping spot btw, cool shop with a very wide selection of under-the-radar stuff.
