    Wink New Mexico Water

    There must be somethng in the water in New Mexico, besides the heavy metal runoff from the mine up canyon. I decided to sell my FS in order to get a 5" travel hardtail.

    Why?............would someone do that?

    5" fork on a HT? Sounds like somethin funny in yer PIPE, not the water per se.

    Excellent choice of rides

    I have a 5.5" Pike on my Chameleon HT. I use it for DH and technical stuff and it is huge amounts of fun.

    Yeah, could be the thin air.

    I noticed that my riding was getting sloppy while riding the FS, plowing through everything like a John Deere in a cornfield. I also miss having a connection to the trail, feeling every freakin' rock, squirrel, deer, log that you roll over.
