I'm new to the trails in the area (GJ/Fruita.) I have ridden a little on top of the Uncomp. (Rim trail) and DH'd 6.4 road and John Brown near Gateway a few years back. I'm interested in locals opinions of trails and the best all around bike for the area. I know we have a wide variety of trail types, and for that reason I am considering an "All Mountain" bike. I currently have a '95 C'dale Super V 3x3, full xtr 8 speed. I'd like to get into bigger travel. I'm considering a used SC Bullit ('03.) Any opinions about the bike or it's general compatibility for the area?

Thanks ahead . . .

Go buy a new Specialized Expedition. They only cost $330.00 and no matter what anyone else on this forum says, it's all you need.
OMG that is the funniest thing I have heard in a while. Nice thing about the expedition is the little bell on the bar that comes OEM!!!
In fact, I would love to see a pic of some ridin that bike down into horse thiefs!!!

a rigid single speed to a big hit will be fine. Just don't try anything else.
Would a unicycle fall in there? I've done Mo Fun, and Mary's on a uni. :D
Got back to the center parking area and my butt was way too kicked to continue, but it was hella fun!

Now you're pushing the boundries of who is the most Xtreme. I thought I was bad on my fixed gear cyclocross, but only to be outdone by a uni!
I ride a fixie on dirt as well. Good onya. I been on a uni for over 35 years. Usually not my first choice for long rides. Think 1 to 1 singlies. Not hella fast. I may be a lotta things, but extreme (or as it's called now, epic), aint one of them. I just like to shake it up, and have fun.

If this is not BS, and I have no reason to believe it is, this is incredible.
I received a uni for Xmas and have been pretty consistent practicing. I can ride and mount (1 out of 4) and aspire to ride on trails, but realize that even with consistent work, that is a long, long way away.

Anonymous, next time I'm in GJ area, maybe I'll ask you to teach me something (anything) in the wheel.

I've been riding a uni for 30+ years. I'm not saying I didn't come off, once or ten times, but single track on a uni is a blast. It aint biking. Kinda like sledding vs skiing. Buttloads more work and a lot slower. Keep at it, it gets easier. :thumbsup:
