Biking Santa was here!

Biking Santa dropped some cool swag at my house. For me a new Hardrock ss,for my son a new hardrock comp, and for my daughter some cool sock guy socks(purple and pink flames) and a new pair of specialized gloves. We must have been pretty good this year. My wife totally pulled one over on me this year, I had been looking at the SS in the LBS for a while but I had no idea she had gotten it for me.See ya, I'm going riding.

Well I don't really like people buying things for me. I make more than most of my friends and feel bad when they spend money on me. I would rather spoil them.

Its a great place to progress...one week usually progresses people a full year with averag riding. Its just too easy to get in 20 runs.

Depending on age I have seen 10 to 12 year olds come up here and ride like madmen...they love it like a big huge playground and lots of pros hanging out.

You could come up and stick him in a pro clinic......then he would meet tippie, bearclaw and simmons (amongst others)...get shown the best riding by the best riders and you could ride the trails with some locals......now I know I am just getting you into trouble...hahaha

Thanks,now he's talking a new bike. He keeps throwing the word Stinky around. I got the HR so he could ride a little of everything with one bike. Your not helping, he thinks Bearclaw and Simmons are the bomb.

He could rent. I think in one of the clinics you get rental discounts ...

ok not bastardizing this thread anymore. If you do decide to head up here pm me and I can help with what I can, I know the hotels well and all of the different clinics. Might be able to help in a small way.
