New role at work has me traveling more than most airlibne pilots (seriously… 5 to 6 days a week and sometime 3 states in a day!)

So I have been nurturing a lovely beer gut instead of riding. Add on a problem with my old bike… and I decided to get a new one (used of course – see custom title):


Before I could get it together I decided to ride South Mountain with my DH/FR hardtail, that hurt!

And a minor technical didn’t help


Anyway – got the new ride and headed up Morman trail to National, then back down National the whole way… wow that bike was AWESOME!!! I am stoked about getting back out there, hopefully I will be able to ride it more often.

Anyway few images from South Mountain:

Some fun features (on the way back down):



That's it - kinda breif... but look for more in the future

So now I won't be seeing anymore pics of some of my old favorite trails in SoCal! I've ridden SoMo before too though, so no sweat! Great pics.

My territory covers SoCal... so I am going to build up a 'spare' bike to leave at -BB-'s for when I visit - so I'll make sure to post up some more as I get the chance. Any Request?

That DOC looks real nice Mark! I'll be joining your HT club soon. I have a little surprise for the more XCish rides we do 'round here time to time.

You coming back east any time this year? Hope you enjoying your new home.

BTW, have you sworn off fullies?
