    Fun riding with everyone today. Wish I had the bullit, but the Titan was fun too. I just wished I could ride it better.

    All I have to say is Dunkin Donuts.

    Awesome ride! I was pretty psyched the night before and I'd say it lived up to my expectations. Good to see a bunch of guys (and Bo, I guess) that I haven't ridden with in a while. I have to say though, that this being this out of shape stuff sure made it hard to talk to people. By the time I caught my breath and got my heart rate down, we were rollin'. Nice to trade bikes near the end though, my legs were cooked from pedaling the cement-mixer all day.

    Oh, and Splat, you're gonna get yours soon with all of these crash pics. I say let's all bring our cameras on the next few rides and post 'em all on a Splat crash thread!

    Hey Quo, I'm interested in your review of the proto Carver 650/29er? Looked like it was a nimble, fast and FUN bike...

    Thanks for the fun ride everyone (except Dirtboy:bonk:)!

    Lucky for us we stumbled upon this local hangout (kind of dicey looking but cool inside!)

    Slappy, you should've told us about this!

    It is a pretty fun bike indeed. Would make for a great XC race machine in my estimation.

    when I first got it the stem was inverted a tad - the front end stuck to the ground like it was glued to the terrain - I'd think that would be good for XC and climbing.

    Flipped the stem and it changed the bike to a more trail bike feel with the front end being easier to "loft" a bit - which would be good for playing on rocks and riding logs etc.

    Looks like a fun ride. This is the first year I can remember that I haven't ridden on new years day. It has become a tradition that I get concussed, break or separate something while riding on Jan 1st and I wanted to break the cycle.
