    Surly Larry tire right? Looks like you guys had some intense moments there, and great fun.

    Some fairly gnarly lines there. What we call a high P-factor. How much it makes your sphincter pucker before you go over the edge.
    What kind of handle bars are those on the bike with the Surly's?

    Damn you ! Everything here is either wet snow or oatmeal-like mud. Those steps look fun.

    Looks like a blast!.... too bad it's been snowing for 4 hours and showing no sign of letting up here in the midwest.

    Pretty Cool trail Aqua, Iron Mtn and Ellie May right? that was one of the most fun trail ride ever! watching you hit that on a full rigid was nutty!
    We got similar stuff out here but the rolls turn into drops rather quickly.
    gotta head back there soon for another taste of that!

    Nice pics on some gnarly goodness.

    Seeing blue skies like that make me envious as we end another grey sky day

    The handlebars are the Jeff Jones looped H-bar (or some sort of copy).

    That whole bike, I can't tell from the pic, but it looks similar to a Jeff Jones fatbike I saw, or it could be from another custom fabricator, but that looks like a titanium fork, and I am fairly certain that there's a lot o' $$$ in that bike. Looks awesome.

    I admire the guys that can ride the crazy technical stuff. If I did that... Man, I'd bust my a$$ quicker than you could say scat.

    That Larry is pretty worn. That could be an expensive tire to roll around on in your conditions at $100.00 a pop.
