    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.

    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! 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!

    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).

    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!

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

    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)
