This was last week when it was raining.



This is today w/ new rubber, Kenda Nevegal up front and Excavator in the rear, got 'em both for $20 each at sea otter. Like them a lot more than the exiwolf/fire xc pro combo I had before.



This is the trail behind the picture above. For 70-80% of the trail you can't really see it till you're right on top of it. It's either like this



Or tall grasses like this:



This is actually the top of the trail where it comes out of the gully. This is near Chatsworth.

i don't think pictures do it justice. there is subtle silver and graphite pinstriping that runs throught the bike. it doesn't show up in this picture but it really does break up the all white frame well.

New saddle on the NRS.

Had to adjust it a bit after this photo though, so don't be worried about the angle.

Kinesis Maxlight XC2. It's a UK brand that shares the same name as the manufacturer. Kinesis makes Felt and Kona's bikes among others.

2000 Gary Fisher Wahoo. Bought it barely used two days ago for $100...couldn't really turn down the price. Put some beefy Specialized Purgatory tires on it to replace the hybrids it came with, as well as some of those Specialized Contour ergonomic grips. I might put a suspension fork on it one day, but for now I like the precise control I get from a rigid fork. Plus I don't feel like dishing out $200 for a fancy suspension for I'll just lock up most of the time anyway.

Thanks...Swapped the wheels for some Stans Arch rims, as the Salsa Delgado rims couldn't be run tubeless. I won't be going back to tubes.
