    I was going to try out a bike tommorrow before I bought it from zark. My other friened I was going with canceled. I was planing on meeting at the mission at 9 am which worked out for zark. I left a messege with someone else I might go with, but he meets at the mission at 6 am which wouldn't work out for zark. I know tunnel (how to get there/how to get down) but I want to ride cold springs because its faster.

    If I end up going at 6, I will have to ride tunnel which sucks on my hardtail.

    So, if anyone is going at 9am and knows cold springs, say something. I really want to try out his bike and ride cold springs or tunnel if I have to.

    Oh man I love Coldsprings :drool:
    I've only ridden it once, but it became my favorite about half way down.

    Depends on how fast you are, Cold Springs can take a while as well, it's faster in sections I'd say BUT there's still plenty of rocks and such. Things are in great condition right now!

    BTW you buying Zarks Iron Horse?

    yeah most likely buying it. I can do tunnel in about 30 min on my hardtail. tunnel would be way more fun on an Fs dh bike.
