Last night I went with some buddies to a semi local riding area that's known for it's ruggedness and it's ass kicking trails. (Red Hills Rec Area for those who know) Well, I took the SS and had a blast. I didn't ride everything, but I was in or near the front, even while pushing a few climbs. Even when I did push, I basically pushed the same stuff everyone else pushed or pushed as fast as some of them climbed. What was even better whas I then grunted up some stuff that I didn't think I could make when I first looked at it.

It was a blast.
