Dirt? I'm supposed to get it dirty? Actually the dirt/mud has floweth. Took it to the trail and about 2 minutes into the ride I proceeded to plant the front wheel in about 12 inches of mud and did a beautiful swan dive over the handlebars. If that wasn't bad enough, I came back around and hit the same exact line, but this time I think it was more like a swan dive with a quarter rotation. May have been a tuck in there too.
