    Last week on the snow (PICS)

    Man this trail was a lot of fun. There were a few stretches I hiked due to ice but much of it was still snow covered enough to provide traction. I did not make it up the "wall" nor did I even try. The bottom will be muddy on a warmer day, it was almost frozen solid when I was there. Only grabbed a couple shots! (Deer Creek Canyon)

    I've always wanted to try riding in the snow. You might cause me to give it a try.

    Do it, it is a lot of fun. And if you get the fresh snow it is really peaceful!

    Man that looks awesome, by the way I used to have a Rocket 88 and it was awesome, I had the one with the big bushing around the bb and I wore out the crappy bushing in about 6 months and got a replacement. I made the guess that the replacement would last and sold off the bike. Later I tried to get it back and the guy wouldn't sale it. If you have the one with the big bushing has it held up?

    Both of my 88's are that original style. I is good one is bad. I love the bike so I am going to see if I can have someone custom make me a new bushin. I have been looking around on McMastercarr's website to see what they can do.
