    I've ridden both(friend has a short p.2) and its like riding a 20 almost. A bit exaggerated but you get the idea. Dream4est is significantly shorter than me i think and he bought my p1 so i'm guessing that you ought to go with the long because it'll fit you better.

    i wear 9.5 shoes and i am 5 foot 8 and the long p1 hits my foot on x-ups. heres a shot where it happened slightly. thats my only issue with the bike. other than that it rips. sprocket if you really want to be challenged by other hardtail riders i suggest that you head up here to eaton park and also check out lake arbor in arvada and sunset in lakewood. there are top racers as well as local shredders who are hitting big, steep and tight rhythms. im from springs and i have never seen anything like these spots there. from what i have seen eaton, arbor and sunset have the biggest rhythm jumps in the state.

    Mark, you ever seen the dj's near Vickers and Academy? They're like the ones in your pics but more based around 20"ers so they're real compact, but there's some bigger ones than in your rhythm there(too bad I can't do them ) We still gotta go riding sometime, maybe when I get my On-One Gimp build up. later

    its hard to tell in the shots, but some of the gaps are 21 foot and some of the wells are 10 foot deep.that jump at end of main is the smallest big one here. the small sets have been rebuilt here and at lake arbor. and sunset is the biggest steepest bmx set around. i remember vickers and academy. it was not like you are saying it is now so i will have to come down. hardtails on the djs and big bikes at palmer park? we will come down on a sat or sun and you can take us around.

    Yeah, they're huge now. Not nearly as big as those you're telling me about, but there's some big stuff there. You're gonna come down this weekend? Awesome. I"m probably gonna head up to Vail on Sunday to go snowboarding, but if you came down today that'd be cool. If you come down today call me at 282-3424 or if I'm not there at 641-4102. later,

    Mark, that sounds good. I think I've got spring break the week after this upcoming week, and yeah that is the rampart bmx track(also where i go to school)... but there's some fun stuff behind it too, a small dh line w/rock garden, a nice 7-8foot gap step down also some huge(for me atleast ) drops nearby. i'm gonna ride them today so I'll try and post some pics this afternoon. i'd love to shuttle capn jacks and other things with you guys but seeing as how i still can't drive would you guys be able to take me there?

    we will come down in two cars so we can shuttle tony. does rampart have sets of djs? does vickers and academy have small and medium rhythms or just big? any other dj spots? tony i want to get there real early on a sunday and hit djs, then palmer and then some shuttling. i need various options as my group will have freeriders of all abilities.

    That's gonna be sweet! Rampart doesn't have a set of dj's, there's one small(3-4gap) double behind the track on the way to some FR stuff, but for the most part we're usually on FS rigs back there. UH...I don't know about small/medium rhythms at vickers, as I've only been there once, but I'm sure there's some stuff that would be worth playing around on there. There's some medium sized rhythms out near Powers and Barnes that are cool...sprocket said he found some new ones but I'm not sure where they are at. You should also ask DH'er16 and DanD they know more about the ColoSpgs area than I do. Are most of you guys bringing hardtails and big bikes? If so, do you think there would be room for me to bring a hardtail also? I'm hopefully going to have it somewhatbuild up in a few weeks(On-One Gimp). Let me know, this should be a cool trip thing. Which sunday are you guys thinking of coming down? the 28th? or this upcoming one? I'll probably be gone this upcoming one...Well I'm off to Breckenridge for the day, Later.
