    nice job...

    good work by both of you. I like SJ's 'pursed' lips look. Kinda reminds me of Mr. Bill

    She actually had a Mr. Bill moment on this 3 footer... Thank goodness for armor...


    She was unscratched. The RD hanger on the other hand, was toast...

    Aww, man you didn't get a ride in the 10 wheel drive Ma Deuce (aka Dirt Kaizer)...getting a ride in that thing was great, sounded like an airplane it was so loud, but solid

    $20 very well spent with Coyote Shuttle....great company

    Jesse is a great guy
    Just ride down there and jump off something for crying out loud...

    Thanks for the pics! Did you get the Canfield yet?

    And the big question did you clean Upper Body Bag? Nasty, nasty corner.

    I'm still waiting on some brakes, wheelset and misc parts for the "One". It should be ready for the next trip to Moab of Gooseberry for Thanksgiving... I'll do a full review once I get her going (in the Custom DH frame forum) and dialed in...
    Unfortunately, RRB and I did not clean the "Notch/UBB". We gave it a try but the sand just made it really really hard to get any braking traction to get ready for the right hand drop... We were just lucky to be able to stop before it (spotters help!)... We do see the line however and maybe next time we can hit it all the way down...
    I hope to have pics of RRB doing the Notch/UBB uploaded soon...

    If we are talking about the same notch (I think that AZMC and Dangeruss had photoed it), that will be a major challange. I had difficulties hiking it down (almost needed ropes for rappeling this section ).
    Good luck but if I were RRB than I would have encouraged you to go first
    Just kidding...............

    I'm a gentleman... Ladies first...
    The line on the first part of the Notch/UBB is fairly straightforward, it's the sand and the right handed narrow drop that can be deadly... The hardest part is dropping in and committing since there is no place you can dab. Unless dabbing with your face counts... It's one of the scariest things we've ever done on our 575's...
    As usual, pictures don't do the drop justice... Maybe SJ's pics will show silly it really is... It makes Lower Body Bag/Jackass seem safe and easy...
    Here is the line... The rock was mostly covered in this fine talcum sand that was hard enough to walk on...

    Yup, I probably will nevet clean such a section. However better riders with good familiarity with the line can do it as AZMC showed us.

    great smile, like he realy planned to walk in the air
    Seriously, it's easy to smile sitting next to a laptop but this section is realy very very technical.

    Ahhh, bodybag. The fun, the frustration, the elation. A more awkward 25ft of trail does not exist.
