Viva Las Vegas

Theres more to Vegas than casinos, strip clubs and buffets...

Highest peak of the trail is at 5000 feet!

I generally hate Vegas but, next time I'm out there (for some unGodly reason I wind up there at least 2-3 times per year) I'm going to have to lug the bike along. Nice pics.


P.S. I really feel for you guys that have nothing but rollers and flats; I rode through the canyon by my new pad on Saturday (I just moved in January so I haven't had the cance to explore all of the trails) and wound up doing about 10 miles of gradual up-hill riding. About the only excitement I had during the entire ride was when I was forced to get off my bike to cross the shin to knee high stream about 5 different times. Long climbs and technical descents are a thing of beauty; flats are great if you want to take pictures.

Is that all there is to Las Vegas in the background?

I'd MUCH rather be where you are than down there in a stupid Money Pit....

Its an 03 HardRock, not comp nor sport. Its been upgraded here and there and more upgrades coming in about a month i.e. disc brakes, wheelsets, shifter and levers. I havent taken it off any drops higher than two feet only because there arent any on the trails I ride. Trials or trails? There is a big difference. The HR isnt exactly a trials bike but it makes a great trails bike.

A trials bike is more like this:
