Nice build! 32 miles - that's a nice long ride to get acquainted with your new Pack.
I'm from Greensboro, used to live in Hickory a few years back. You ride with the Hucksters ever? Crazy dudes.ncbiker said:I am not sure what I can add to what has been said many times before regarding a review of how the bike performs, but I will throw out a comment or two. The bike's first ride was a 32 or so mile trek in the Wilson's Creek area near Linville. All I can say is WOW! Probably the most fun I have EVER had on a mountain bike. For those that know Wilsons, the route was: No Name, Green Town, Raiders Camp, Brown Mountain ORV trails.
I have not seen a good Wilsons Creek Pisgah Area Map that shows all of the trails we ride. You really need a guide to show you around.Is there a map for the trail(s) you rode?
Dude, I cheated. Those pedals are flats on one side and clipless on the other. They are cheap Wellgo D10s or something like that. Saturday was the first time I used them. I like 'em. Not very heavy either.did you end up running flats the whole ride?
The front is a DT Swiss 5.1d laced to a Hope Bulb hub and yes, Chad built it. Damn nice wheel. Very light for what it is and I'm pretty sure it will take all of the abuse that I'll be able to throw at it. The rear is a King laced to a Mavic F219, built locally.What kind of wheel is that? Did Chad build them up?
Yea, the Hucksters are who showed us around up there. We still hook up with them from time to time. I havent been on No Shin in a while, same thing with Hadley and Bee Hive too. Its hard getting those trails in and then climbing back up to the top to ride Raiders Camp.tommyrod74 said:I'm from Greensboro, used to live in Hickory a few years back.

That's a great route you guys took. You've gotta take that thing down No Shin, it's a thrill and a half.
We're headed up there with the team van (Shuttle, anyone?) in the next few weeks, weather permitting- let me know if y'all wanna meet up.
Its a '05 horstlink.guejarsierra said:Hi from Spain,please do you have a close-up pics of rearend of your pack? it,s TNT or old horslink?
I used to ride with the Hucksters a few years back. A good friend of mine who still lives in the Hickory area (Daniel P) still rides with them occasionally- he has a black Bullit.ncbiker said:Yea, the Hucksters are who showed us around up there.

Post when you are going up there. There is talk of a Dec. 10 trip. I've ridden with some guys from G'boro/ Raleigh area up there before. Maybe we've met.
