No need to be offended...

Like Squeaks I had an 18 mile 70 degree ride on the CO F/R Saturday. This is how it looks Sunday morning. 1 foot and still counting.

Should make the rest of you (snow-bounders) feel a little better :)

Will post again in about a week when it is all gone and we are riding in t-shirts again :D

The worst part is I too live on the CO front range, but all I could do was sit out in the 70 degree weather wishing I could ride.

Here in Loveland we only got about 3". With temps back in the 60s by Tuesday I expect to be riding on Weds.
Out of deference to those 70 mile south of you, getting close to 2 feet of snow, you should wait until May :D

I don't even want to gloat about how nice the weather was in Georgia this weekend. The only dusting we have is green pollen on everything. It could be worse. I grew up in Loveland and one of the biggest snows we ever received while I was there was in the second week of May. I think we had over 36" in town and the foothills had over 4 feet of wet, heavy snow. Luckily it was gone in no time.

Whoa! That's some serious spring snowfall. Sposed to be sunny and upper 40's in Anchorage today. There is almost no snow on the ground right now. :D Its mostly just the big piles in parking lots from the plows.

Squeeks, How does the pack do on the steepest part of the backbone climb. You know, right where that tight turn is?
You must mean Heart Attack Ridge ;)

No problems. As I approach the big climb I dial down the TALAS on the 36, scoot forward on the saddle & give it some gas. I have no problem clearing anything on the Bone with either my Pack or Hammerhead but find that I actually have an easier time with the Pack on some of the steeper rock faces due to the stiffness of the fork, the extra BB clearance & the additional travel.

You're welcome to drive up one day & give it a go. I'll be happy to play rabbit on my HH.
