We weren't alone. Two them. Couldn't tell if they were mt. kitties or bobcats. Aaron thought maybe coyotes, but their nose was too short.

Here is a short video that was taken. I should start taking more videos.


Mr. Beanz 02-19-10 11:44 AM

Nice pics and video! You guys are insane, bushwhacked legs just aren't any fun in my book!:p....I just can't believe how clean and shiny you Colorado peeps keep your tires!:eek:I thought it was just you, guess not!:D

funrover 02-19-10 02:34 PM

LOL It's all in good fun! I am really curious now how bad you thought our tires got over here. Yeah the legs was a entry taken a bit to fast

Mr. Beanz 02-19-10 04:13 PM

Yours do look a little dirtier than the snow pics you posted a while back. But if you look at your buddy's sidewalls in the first pic, they look spitshine black!:D Maybe it's that my tires go through more dirt while you ride lots of rocks?

Do you clean your tires? I don't. The rims every so often, the frame is kept somewhat clean but the drivetrain is cleaned and lubed after every ride (runs better and quiet that way;))................By the way, I noticed that you have the same exact red tire on one of your bikes, it too is real shiny red!:D (Panaracer Fire XC Pro)

Nice photos! Looks like a great spot to ride.

MrDavros2U 02-20-10 06:17 AM

Those are great shots. I'm dying to get back to Colorado to ride something like that when i go back to visit the family. Looks like a good time had by all.

That was really neat the way you hopped around those rocks in the video!

I would fall on my face. I noticed the rear suspension really helps with that move, Is it possible with a hardtail as well?

Very cool riding, I think I'm way too much of a lumox to ever play in rocks like that (at least if I wanna keep my teeth and various limbs intact). :D

This is an old, but super cool and helps me believe we're a long way from finding the limit of what humans can do on bicycles... Your video reminded me of this.

Thanks! I am amazed that my little blurp reminded you of that.... That just made my day! :thumb:

Best mtb tires! Are yours the "imitations" or are they the real, made in Japan, Panaracer tires? Mine are the cheapie ones...but still awesome tires!

Mr. Beanz 02-20-10 10:41 PM

The heavy cheapies, $25. I've seen some models priced around $45'ish(?). Too rich for my blood!:D

I agree. I bought mine back in 2001 in college, when I actually had somewhere to mountain bike. Now they are abused on fine gravel trails, but never again! I am going to order some Michelin Country Rock tires for the canal path riding. They are pretty inexpensive, and I really dont need agressive tires. But Ill keep the fire xc pro on the LX rims in case I do an offroad or long trip (no flats ever with them, I trust them)
