My ride is 26" The big wheels do somethings well but I like to pay around in a way that just works better on a smaller, more responsive wheel.
My bike has been getting some nice upgrades as all of the end of season sales come out. I love the Zee brakes that I just put on and I have a full XX1 group going on it before the weekend.

Yeah that was insane. Dude is a monster, like 6'3"-6'4", 220lbs. I saw him ripping the slopestyle course at Highland like that earlier this summer. Def whips a bike around for a big dude. When he threw that I couldn't believe it. That was huge.

Just when I thought the biking season was over the weather cleared up and was dry/sunny all last week just in time for the annual Biketoberfest shuttle day at Dry Hill in Port Angeles, WA. Of course in true Seattle fashion it rained the night before and that morning. Rain didn't stop until we literally arrived in PA, and to be honest we almost bailed before leaving but decided to go for it. Glad we did because it was a blast! Definitely alot of wet dirt getting flung up and a bit cold at 9am, but it warmed up and dried up a little bit throughout the day and was such a blast!


Our crew brought 2 Intense 951's and a Transition TR250. Just like with snowboards, we give our $$$ to rider-owned companies that manufacture their bikes in the USA.


Long lines for the U-Hauls all day even with 4 trucks in rotation. Pleasantly surprised to see such a large turnout considering the time of year and weather.

That's awesome. The TR250 and 951 is on the top of my list for my bike upgrade next year. You'll have to let me know what you think of them. Buying a USA bike is one of my top priorities for sure. I'm glad there are still companies making it in this country.
