Cape Split is a nice ride. I only rode it once but as I remember it's a bit technical at the beginning and then opens up to flowing hard packed single track near the middle. The cliff-top meadow at...

I stuffed the 600 into mine a few years ago. It's a road racer so I'll never get much for it when I decide to get a new race bike. That's why I'll likely tackle a restoration job on it eventually.
