    Parts and Belated Ride Stoke!

    got some parts in for the 5 spot which is in the process of being refreshed, in the meantime stockpiling parts!

    The plan-

    - Push Bushings
    - Repolish rear triangle and lay down some 3m clear tape
    - Carbon FSA Handlebar
    - Thomson 70mm stem
    - Hope Brakes M4 front and X2 rear
    - SLX crankset
    - Pink Sram PG-990 cassette
    - WTB Ti Saddle
    - Annual Tune up
    - 15mm QR FOX fork lower conversion/CK axle conversion
    - Tentative - White Arch rims, white spokes, pink nipples- this mod wont be for a while though

    Rear Der and seatpost clamp(unfortunately clamp doesn't fit the Turner so I'll keep it in case for a future build) The X0 rear der is definitely a damn blingy piece.


    Rebuilt the fork a little bit ago with Enduro Fork Seals and finally got around to buying a new lockout lever, bb's for the lever, and new decals meant for a 2009 RLC which have a brushed aluminum look.

    After


    A general pic. of the bike in Chilhowee to give you an idea of its current state, eventually these parts will be going over to a DW 5 spot in Baby Blue way later in 2010(college student budget)

    Now for some stoke pics. in October went with another busload of MTB'ers, coming from S, Florida. Hit Pinhoti trails in GA. Then, Chilhowee in TN, then the last day did a quick run of Raccoon Mountain. We'll be going back to Raccoon mountain and dedicating a good whole day towards, what an amazing and vast trail system.

    Pinhoti, began to rain mid ride. -( fun but my glasses were getting wet so visibility sucked a bit.



    Chilhowee Scenic with nice chunky descents, fun!




    Trailside repairs

    Two Turners chillaxin'

    Rock Garden







    Some of Raccoon Mountain and the dam, but honestly was having WAYYY too much fun to take pics.

    Yours truly

    all those bikes fit in the luggage compartment of the bus?
    that's cool to have an organized group that big.

    Yep they all fit, it does take a little planning but they fit. We usually have about 26-28 people on these trips.

    PS- there were about 5-6 more Turner 5 spots not pictured.

    Can't wait to go back and really explore all of Raccoon Mountain, we were only able to devote 4-5 hours.

    The rear derailleur snapped so we coined it the $8000 single speed that day. There was definitely no expense spared on that Enduro.

    Shales, I will keep in touch. Especially if you know your way around the trails there, we were lost for a good hour.
