Hahaha. The Trek bike is actually covered in mud, you can't see it because my new bike is blocking it. Hopefully if it doesn't storm/snow by the end of the week, I can take it out for a spin and get that dirty as well.

Is that a breezer repack pro? I almost got a DB sortie black but I am leaning toward the scapegoat.

I picked up the Sortie 3. I just couldn't quite justify the coin for the Black. Even with a sweet deal. Have to say I am pretty happy with the 3. The Black has to be pretty nice.

It is, love it, have riden it twice on short rides. I have been working too much the past few days since I got it. I need to grab som crank bros egg beater/platform combos for it though...... I love the downhill and don't wanna not not able to go as big as I want, hence the enduro-160mm travel bike......

Soooooo... I almost dropped my bike on my face trying to lift it up to do a test hanging... Is there a proper way to hold the bike to avoid that? Or am I just going to have to pump more iron to strengthen my arms up?

I agree with the article. Technical trails are fun (when I'm not crashing). If you enjoy smooth conditions, take up road biking.

To put it in snowboarding/skiing perspective, would you want every trail on the mountain to be a bunny slope or green trail?
