Probably what will happen is you'll make fun of my ridin' skillz but I kinda don't care :) I'll give you a hint - yes I cased the jump with the berm in front of it but I didn't have time to re-vid it today - my poor, poor XT wheels! Notice the Pivot socks covering up those calves at the end.

Oh yeah, I measured the table at 28 seconds at 8' to clear. I know it looks like a 2 footer in the vid.....

Well, you'll be at WHISTLER so....

My neighbors just got back from a weekend there... they had the upper area opened, but only 1 trail. It's going to be in the 80's here this week after a ton of rain and cold so should dry out and be OK next week or maybe even this weekend. I'm going to try and go 2 or 3 thursday's from now when I can ride whatever I want to.

Trail Dog Envy!!!! :madman: :madman:

There is this girl that is ALWAYS up on the trails and she has an awesome trail dog. So I finally asked her what breed (med-small, brindle coat....). Turns out it's Aus Shepard and Boxer mix and they breed them in the town next to the Canadian border about 20 mins from here. I may go get me one of those. I love our 2 little Poms but trail dogs they ain't.

herding dogs do make good trail dogs... mine sometimes decides to nip at my feet though... note how she is carrying a ball to reduce her temptation:D

schweet vid,, them xt wheels holding up?
They have been the best wheels I've ever had. 2 years on them and they still run very true. I threw new bearings in a little while ago and I cracked a freehub on it once - the outer part cracked left to right - real weird. Anyway, can't say enough good things about them.

It's up in Bellingham at Galbraith Mtn. I live 100' from the north entrance trail :thumbsup:
Hey, gticlay...I almost bought the house just south of the stairwell at the northside entrance.

What size FB are you riding?

I'm on an XL. BTW, they are building more homes just up the hill right now. I think most are presales but there's a few empty lots left.
