thanks for digging

hey, I love technical trails too. But I love open legal fast flowy trails as well. And I like new trails that don't get washed away when it rains.
You guys are awesome for getting that done. I am gonna go donate a couple bucks
at www.sierratrails.org. And everyone else should too, because it makes a difference.
Nothing like getting a new trail for Christmas!

Admirable effort and all, but......what's the point of making suspension bikes if all the features that require suspension are removed? I'm just a fan of mountain biking for the part of biking on mountainous terrain. But that's just me I guess.

From what he told me yesterday out at our local trail, one of our local riders won the bid and selected a BLT2. When it gets here, looks like we'll be building a BLT2 up for him at the shop.

Nor have you been on the North yuba trail in question. That trail is certainly no beginner trail no matter how groomed those pics look, rather a strenuous XC ride with steep bluffs and stunning views of the North Yuba river. 17 miles of legal sustainable singletrack sound pretty good to me. Or maybe you just like to tear up the 'mountain' with you full suspension DH bike riding off the trail and damaging the natuaral ecosystem so nobody else can ride there. If you want DH, there are plenty of legal epic DHs in Downieville to be had. Ride the trail before you judge based on a few pics.

Just my opinion.

I certainely have ridden Downieville. I ride my DH bike on DH trails. Anything else is covered by my 5-6" bike.

I think it'd be more appropriate for Santa Cruz to auction of a Chameleon for this particular event, that's all...

So buy yourself your own mountain and ride your features to your heart's content. National Forest really isn't into that...

Thanks to SC for displaying such generosity to support their local trails. This is just a small sampling of my local trail the bike will be primarily used on. I believe the LT2 will be more than up to the task. :) Thanks Yubaman.

Purs, I think you got a great deal at $1425...

I almost put in a bid of $1550 while it was at about $1200. Would've made a nice xmas present for myself, but I've been a little naughty this year. Besides, I couldn't justify it as I'd recently bought an LT1 off ebay and built it up. Congrats

Purs (and TNC) I envy you guys - these trails do look demanding. Not a single rock where I live, just flow, soft stuff and roots. To get these sharp edges I need to travel south.
LT2 will feel home. I'd sure like to check it with my double barrel....
