    Cool vid JP,

    We rode Davis the whole way and about half of Crabtree....until we lost the trail where it climbs up away from the creek, it never crosses the trail.You are correct, we need to go back with tools,:evil nice to have single track so close to home.


    This washed out switchback is one of the real tough spots on Crabtree. Scott's back wheel is hanging over a 10 foot hole!:D

    Well... All the simple fixes are complete, and the Mrs can start it (sometimes). Ready to take her out on a light ride.
    She rode it around the other day and did fairly well.

    13/42 gearing tops out @ 50
    14/42 gearing it'll hit 55... But it takes 2 miles to get there :p

    No top end worth crowing about but it'll wheelie in third heh. Time to take her out trailing :p

    My only open weekend this month got shat on ... I might have been able to sneak out saturday but my mom needs a ride home from the airport.

    Ya'll really aughter do what justin was talking about long haul to kernville ride the canyon trail and back again. That would be a killer (long ass, but fun) day ride.

    I'll be camping somewhere off of the road to Bald Mountain Saturday & Sunday if anyone wants to ride. I'll come out to the town of Shaver for morning meet ups, and from there we can head in any direction we want, let me know....
