Monday morning coming down!

On the way to work I went to South Valley. The trails there were packed down enough that it was actually a pretty fast ride. Had only one spot where I really sunk at all. It was a great time, however lasts nights snow may have changed things. Will find out tomorrow!

It is, but it has been one of the best wheels I have ever had! Outlasated many many other wheels.
