Post Your Winter Riding Photos!

That's right, post 'em up! I need more inspiration to get on my mountain bike and play in the snow.

Those of you without snow are allowed to make us all jealous as well


Here are some, from the first group ride I took our Junior team on:






First ride on the new bikes for a bunch of the guys as well. Nothing but praise for our Orbeas.
Studded tires (see sticky) worked very well too.

Nice pictues, looks like you guys were having a blast. Wish i had a bike to ride in this absolutely stunning weather.

Im looking right up the chainstay of a 2008 Norco Manik In early February. Or if i can scrounge the cash a Mongoose Black Diamond Double. But now I'm hijacking your nice thread.

Wish I'd taken my camera with me yesterday...72* and sunshine here in north Texas. Snow looks like fun though. Nice shots.

Are you joking? You cant honestly say that the growing cities and use of natural resources is not messing up the world.

So youre riding your sassie there never? Cant really tell, but i can see it sitting next to a tree. That looks like wicked fun, it'd be pretty sketchy right?

They are some damn nice trails!

That's what you get when one of the guys is the lead designer at AMM (i.e., helped design every single thing in the world).

Yeah, other than the paint they are the same (frame-wise). I built mine up with spare parts I had lying around so nothing is similar to a stock Manik.

I've got too many bikes right now...trying to get ride of two complete and one frame and I'm picking up a new trail frame for this coming season.
