Photo Fridays are always good. If you didn't get out somewhere, it's a little voyeuristic, it you did, it's stoke.



Fall is coming:


But there are still some cool colors out there


The ferns continue the reminder that summer time at elevation is short


refueling goodness


When ride devolves into post-ride

Nice New Ride! That's one bike that would make me think about going back to the little wheels. Have you thought about running the High Roller as your front tire? I loved having a Super Tacky High Roller as a front on my old Kona. You could dump it into corners like a moto bike and it would stick.

OP --- What trail in Sedona is that? I'm riding in UT next week and thinking about adding Sedona or Precsott into the mix as well. I'm looking for some fun swoopy singletrack...nothing too technical and hopefully not too much climbing. I'll be all climb'ed out from Moab.

Thanks. Bought it new in June, but the Fox 32 150mm wasn't giving me a confident feeling on the real chunky stuff. Just new wheels, XX 2x10 and Fox 36. I have an extra in the garage, but need to wear out my Ignitor first. I run 2.35 UST; Do they make the super tacky in that config? I like it in the back cause I don't get much spin out in the loose climbs.

Hey DurtGurl nice pics! Where does that fun take place?

To answer this question, riddle me this:

You take in a game, 18 holes a must;
a beer per par, you imbibe I trust;
6:15 tee time, before college game day,
you come home after play, to hear Corso Say;
Oklahoma for the win, I must demand
You then toast an arrogant, with both of your hands;
The smoker gets started, the beer runs dry,
you make a change, and flow ice and rye;
Your woman comes home, from gathering the greens,
finds you and your friends, boasting like teens;
You saddle the bike, at a half past three,
down to the corner for beer, at the local walgreens;
A 30-pack of bud on the rack of your townie,
you haul back home to your meat which is now browning.
More beer is drunk, high fives a must,
The game has not started, and yet we still trust;
The beer has run dry again, another run is made,
Rum this time is bought, nobody is getting laid;
The game then starts, the meat is eaten,
The score run up, the other team beaten;
Your friends go home, but you're still awake,
You leave for store again, to still partake;
It's 2:30am, on Sunday morn,
You're wide drunk awake, and long forelorn;
Falling into bed, you last think outloud,
to set the alarm for 6, for your sunday ride clout;
6am comes fast, your're still drunk but not fast,
The kitchen is a bomb, that exploded in the past;
Adorned in all corners, are signs of the day,
You just lived and drank, and left for today;
The food next to the sink, cold and leftover,
a perfect compliment, to your Sunday ___________

Fill in the blank bud....that's your trail......

Nice poem...but wrong trail! Hint: you posted some great photo's last week of the trail.
Goddammit....that's what I get for living the poem....you are right.....let me try again:

After watching, a thrubbing of Ball State,
I come home, to further partake;
A beer two or three, or perhaps a lake,
of 4-Peaks growler, I do intake,
I get rather smarmy, with language and flow,
on MTBR, to respond to those in the know;
But little do I know, in my own smarty pants,
I write a long-winded poem, like a big [email protected]$$;
and give a hint, for the wrong trail amany,
I'm such an idiot, with nary a penny;
So please excuse, my drunken byline,
and regard the trail name, its a real _________

Allright.....I'm going all "Wolfpack of One" now on Las Sendas and I'm going to chow down on some Jack's Taco's via my bike and some drunken urban hollaginism......who is coming with me.....?????? Last time I did this...I woke up with cholla all over my chest and passed out in the back yard next to the pool........
