    Today was an absolutely gorgeous day. Living in the Northeast and seeing full sun and 60s is quite a treat for it being nearly Novemeber. Rob and I headed to Vassar Farms for nearly 3 hours of riding...

    Rob descending a rock garden


    Me ripping through the rocks


    Rob descending out of the woods



    A quick stop


    A new trail! We rocked the Radio Flyer (with some fast switchbacks)


    Rob didn't make this one...and landed in a thornbush


    A bucolic fall day!




    And the best part...

    I need to say I love my new fork. However, now I need something in the rear to suck up those horrendous roots. :think:

    NEARLY November. ;)

    Possibly. I'm possibly looking at having my LBS build up a Kikapu Deluxe for me at the moment, but not until sometime early next year.

    I'm looking to move to full-suspension too sometime next season. I ride around a 16 though, so the chances of finding something second-hand aren't good. Hopefully I'll be able to save enough for a nice new Kona :drool::p

    That works too. It's certainly not out of the question. If only I can find a nicely priced kikapu frame and go from there

    It's actually Vassar College's (in Poughkeepsie) agriculture/farm part of campus. About 10 miles of trails, and some pretty cool stuff.
