You live in seattle...........

Watch this: northeast of crystal. If I get that right you're fired. :D
With all due respect to Kidwoo (because I'd hate to get on his bad side) this spot is northwest of Crystal Mt. :busted:
You get to keep your job for another day, HAB. This is along Palisades trail. We rode up Ranger Creek and out Palisades on Sunday in conditions that felt way more like August than March

I knew you guys were having a crap winter but that looks silly.

We should just get this over with and set the whole west coast on fire.

It's absurd. I did a hike a couple weeks ago that would normally have the trailhead (at 3000 feet) inaccessible this time of year. There wasn't any snow until about 5000'.

That reminds me- is it bad enough that I can come ride my dirtbike in tahoe yet? My buddy wants me to come up and ski and I'd rather be all braaaaaap

I'm probably going to go ride moto this weekend. And I don't even ride moto. As in I'm borrowing a bike and will be trying not to kill myself at 5mph. The skiing is that good.

Well that settles it. Oh and if there is any deep snow up there on your ride- avoid it on a moto. That stuff will mess you up more than on a mtb.

I assume that's for tire clearance/to get shorter stays on his clown wheel.

Let me know if how you like the Magic Mary HD combo. I had been thinking of doing the same.

-Brett
It's sweet, on loamy / natural and even loose rocky trails its awesome.

Although in the UK it's a draggy combo at trail center type trails, so I'm going to try the new nobby nic on the back next as that still looks like it would be awesome in loam but rolls faster. Completely sold on magic mary on the front

Just sold my dh bike and bought a nomad frame should be here in a week. I think I can pull off my 20 days of dh a year on the nomad and actually pedal it...

This big bike thread needs manning up, all this computer talk is edging closer to lycra than ever :-(

OK, well, not entirely manly ... but current and future build plans on the reign

"Enduro" build





Got some new stickers coming to go all matching, will be peeling the shock's sticker off to go back to the stock one beneath it





Above is with Grid casing tyres, but for full on DH days, I have a cheaper / heavier wheels with full dual ply tyres and a coil shock to go on with it... let's call it the Park bike build.

Halfway there with park bike

...with the coil




THEN, just for shhits n giggles, I also have another configuration that might raise a smile or two , again... watch this space
