    And it was a beautiful day in the neighborhood to go play. I almost have the air pressure in the front and rear shocks dialed in for my weight and riding style and I finally have the Hays Dynos working OK. Started out at 58* dropped down to 52 in the wind and up to mid 60's in the sunny wind protected areas. Views while climbing to the top were awesome.






    Ditched the bike and bushwacked up to the top of the peak

    Figured out the best way to descent on the Fuel is to drop the seat, keep your butt firmfly planted on it and let it rip. Starting to trust the suspension to eat up the terrain.

    Did between 20-30mph on the descent, got a bit hair ball in spots but what they hey.

    almost forgot. just after that last photo you have a screaming fire road blast back to the car. I was going alll out popped a rise into a slight left and there were 5 effing cows laying down on the track. I shot the grassy berm to their right and had nothing but positive thoughts that none of them would jump up and run into my line. two did get up but they ran left thankfully

    Brusy Peak looks nice.

    Were you a bad boy? Did you climb to the true peak? Have you sampled the "use" trail which descends on the other side of the loop?
