Hahaha! Excellent! Talk about altering reality, I didn't even recognize it! Great photos as usual, you set the bar high. I heard the switchbacks were damaged, were they re-carved anew, or am I misinformed?

This is the nicest photo of a bike in a parking lot I have seen in a while, photochopped or not.....

The mineral bottom switchbacks were the ones washed out. They have been repaired, but I think the wrt is still closed as a loop because of high water.

Hard to compete with the crazy good photos on this thread lately. Got myself a new camera and I've been having fun with it.

Krylon Fusion rattle can. 4 coats and then 3 coats of clear. Holding up pretty well.

The bike used to be entirely black, I did a thread showing the paint job step by step. Bike will get stripped and repainted this winter....hmmm.....which color is still tbd.
