So, it snowed nearly 2' here in Ft Collins early in the week, figured there would be no good riding for a while.........boy was I wrong:thumbsup: Coming from Bend OR, where once you get your 1st good snow, pretty much all of the good trails (up higher) are done for the season, so it is a nice welcome surprise to have conditions far different here. Today was a perfect sunny day in the 60's & not another rider on the trail. This trail is called Ginny. Built by mountain bikers, for mountain bikers. It is a 5.4 mile up / 5.4 down. The DH takes about 12 1/2 Minutes if you are pinned at race speed & don't make any mistakes. The trail is a good one to build the DH skills, as it has great visibility & you can see pretty far ahead for peep's climbing up. Pure rocky mountain goodness! And man do I love my bike:D

Dude! It was beautiful down in the Boulder area, too, but trails haven't really dried out yet. That DW Spot is something, isn't it? Had you demo'd one before you bought one? It pretty much does everything well...and it's fast up and down.

Thanks Stu. That's one thing I learned when I lived in CO, you can ride pretty close to year round on quite a few front range trails. (it still was cold for me though)

I was able to demo Darren's from PUSH for a couple weeks with close to the same setup I have now. It does do everything well, I love this rig, especially the downhill, you can really let this bike rip anything!

InkPad, How do you like those Iodine wheels? Been thinking about going that route myself--
Only have 1 ride on them, so far so good. They replaced my 819's on Hadley hubs, rear Iodine was 5 oz's lighter, which was a surprise.

Colorado is grand, isn't it? That Spot is built up beefy too.
CO is great :thumbsup: Spot is built for speed, not for weight, but still a respectable 32lbs 3 oz's :D

Nice! How long have you been in CO inkpad? If you ever make the trek a little further south, we have some really good riding down here around Lyons. I'd be happy to show you around. Good looking Spot there, too :)

Moved here from Bend Oregon in June, loving it so far. I have heard a bit about Lyons, would love to hit it up sometime. My wife has ridden there once & told me all about it. I am limited to weekend rides, so keep me posted on when riding conditions are good & I'll hit you up for a ride.

Cheers,
Stu

It is the 2010 Revelation Team, 150mm dual air u-turn. Fork is amazing right out of the box, very smooth travel & can take bit hits / rock gardens very well. I do have a new PUSH kit in it now. I came off a 2008 Fox Talas 36RC2, also an amazing fork, but the Rev is 14oz lighter ; )

Thanks, serhij

How about an update on the Iodine? Just haven't seen a lot of reviews out there, Other than people complaining about having to look at the Orange.
