nothing too fancy, but it gets me to work and back most days. 4 or so years old and gets ridden about 1500 miles/year.

I normally do XC stuff on a Highball (29er hardtail), but my distances are great enough that the lack of rear suspension gets to me at some places.

Sweet ride! I have a Blur LT and love it. Have you checked out the new Tallboy LT?? Lusting after one myself.

Did my first German MTB race today, 41 Km with 1,300 meters of climbing, start delayed due to lightning and rain, super soupy slop! It was a bear, a friend signed us up and chopped 5 years off my age (Thanks Bruddah!, Living Young!!!) but I'd have won my class if properly entered, no big but they also didn't have the T-Shirts we'd pre-ordered....

Kona King Kahuna "Niner" was awesome, the bigger footprint was a real benefit in the sloppy conditions. Unfortunately I took the GoPro off before the start since the conditions were so bad....

It's a good ride when you can't even read the markings on the tubes.

Yeah, I'm sure it's a great bike, too. But they announced it just a few months after I got a new carbon Nomad, so that's going to be my bigger hit bike for a little while. Maybe next year I'll try a TallboyLTc.

Perfomance has a closeout deal on blue Krylions. IIRC they're $16

Me? My Quattro Assi fell out of the clamp (don't ask ) and now I have a dent in my TT. Not that the QA was worth a whole bunch, but now its worthless.
