Rear shock is Fox DHX 5.0 Air, front is Rock Shox Revelation 426 (non u-turn) which will be replaced this winter.

This bike is built for a 160mm fork, and I'll probably end up with a FOX 36 Float. For the rest of the season I'll have more rear travel than front.

Got back from Tiger a few hours ago! MAN, what a great ride. The hill climb wasn't bad at all and the decent was awesome. It was wet, muddy and a ton of puddles and even a stream running down part of the Preston Railroad trail, but it was still fun. The entire trail is a switch back decent with about 100 small drops and jumps. My bike was in the air more than on the ground.

Overall the trip was about 13 miles and it took us less than 2 hours. Not bad at all considering the conditions. Tiger closes on oct. 15, so Imay ride it one more time before then!

There was a silver 05 WRX in the lot when we left with stock wheels. Anyone here?

I'll be riding Tiger again on the 3rd! It was so fun I have to hit it again before it closes.

I won't be riding this weekend because I'm doing an offroad Triathlon. The main difference with an offroad version is the bike ride is a 12 mile MOUNTAIN bike ride! It is about 6 miles up a logging road, and 6 miles back down on single track. I'm hoping it is muddy so I can pass all the roadies that can't handle the slop.

The Triathlon is at Lake Sylvia near Aberdeen. 1/4 mile swim in the lake, 12 mile mountain bike ride and 2.5 trail run. I hate riding and running on pavement so it is perfect for me. My wife is also doing it, but as a relay. She is doing the biking leg, one friend is swimming and the other is running. You can resister the day of the event, so there is time if people are interested.

Finally got the maiden voyage today. Did a nice little 12 mile loop w/ varied terrain. It's amazing how much faster this bike is than the old one. It climbs light years better and soaks up bumps like crazy with 160mm travel. I actually only have that in the back right now since since I'm running my old 140mm fork. Saving for a 160mm Fox fork. But even as-is, it's super plush.

I'm also running my old crappy Hayes 9 brake in the back. My 1 season old Juicy was shot when we went to put it back on. My buddy who is a shop owner thinks they will warranty it. The Hayes sucks ass and I can't get it to not drag. But at least I'm finally riding. Also, weather today was just unbelievable for riding. Low 70's, clear, no wind, low humidity.







Yes, I de-stickered everything I could. Color is much more accurate in the shade shots.

that thing looks great, nice work. God I miss riding in bend, your climate, terrain, and access from town are so epic.

I rode Labor Day weekend up near Snoqualmie, it rained on me the whole time. And sometimes it rained really really hard on me. It was a nice break from the rain on me.

I finished the Lake Sylvia offroad triathlon today. The mountain bike section was crazy. About 2,000 ft of climbs, 40mph gravel road decents and a bunch of steep, muddy singletrack sections. I crashed hard on a wet/green slimy bridge and broke my left ring finger, adn I somehow missed a turn and rode 4 miles off course, which meant a 4 mile climb back to where I screwed up.

Still had a good time and they have some good singletrack out in that area.

If my finger is feeling good enough to squeeze my grips, I plan on riding Tiger mountain next saturday at 11am. Hoping to have 6+ guys and if would be cool to get a few more to come out an enjoy the Preston descent before the trail closes on the 15th.

With the weather forecast to be clear the rest of the week, we are definitely riding Tiger on Saturday. It should be dry and 70! Perfect riding weather.

If anyone is interested in joining us we will be meeting in the lot off of Highway 18 at 11am on Saturday. I'll be in my gray FXT, and there should be a silver Altima, and possible a WRB WRX wagon. Plan on a 2.5-3 hour ride over about 13 miles. The time al depends on how long it takes everyone to make the climb.

Tiger Mountain closes on the 15th (singletrack trails do anyway), so this might possible be the last chance to ride the Preston and NW Timber trails for the year! It is probably the most famous loop in the area and all my out of town friends insist on riding it when they come to town.

dangit, I'm going to be up in Monroe for the day so won't be able to ride.

I got to check out the new beginner/intermediate dropzone at Duthie last night though. It was a lot of fun and confidence building.

Taht sucks. The Preston railroad trail has about 30 drops/jumps that vary for 1 to 3+ feet. Not huge air, but tons of back to back to back to back jumps.

I never did post this in here but this is my daily driver in the "200K Pose". I'm such a dork I timed it somewhat on purpose to be headed out for a bike ride when I rolled over this milestone. LOL


I'm blowing off work and some steam tomorrow doing the Crystal Mountain Loop. If anybody was interested, I'm starting at 0' Dark Thirty in the morning, let me know.

Thar Crystal Loop looks really cool. Is the loop the same as what is in the video?

What time is "o Dark thirty"? How long does it take to do the loop?

yeah, same as the video. I have to drop family off at the airport at 4 am (ouch) and then plan to head to the trailhead. As soon as it's light enough to ride I'm off. Probably around 6:30 or 7 am.

I'd go but I'm not in great shape at the moment. I think there would be a LOT of hiking for me.

/\/\ I'm in pretty good shape and have a Pot peak epic planned soon with other buddies so I do intend to keep the pace up for "training" so to speak.

We should get organized with a midweek Duthie, Official Subaru Mt. Bike meet. I vote for a Tuesday night. That would be well suited to riders of all abilities and fitness levels. Could be fun...

That would be perfect if I didn't have to work. I like to start early and I can climb at a pretty good pace.

That could be fun. I think the sooner the better since we're starting to run out of daylight. We could meet at one of the Elementary schools and ride over as a group. Parking in the Duthie lot is always suspect.

Of course, that said, I'm pretty busy at work these days and not always sure when I'm getting out of the office. But don't let me hold up any planning.
