Good ride today.  HB, we saw you when we were heading back about 10:30.  The trails would certainly benefit from some rain.  KJ, thanks for being my "wingman" on my real maiden voyage.  At least I didn't break anything THIS time.  By the way, the rear tire is still holding air.  I guess I won't throw a kickout on less than 24 hour Stan's-ed tires.

While on the SST ride back to the lot I was observing the shock's action. I could watch it sweep nearly the full range of motion and take the edge off the jolts.  It was in constant motion and held my curiosity.  Looking forward to your opinion  after another couple rides as to how much confidence inspiration it provides.

It's still a tough call.  I am much more confident in the frames ability to handle the rough stuff now.  I moved the stem/handlebar down, but the fork (@120mm) is too tall for the frame.  It wants to wheelie up every climb.  I will be lowering it to 100mm this week and if need be, use a lower rise bar.  The frame does exactly what it was intended to do.  Take the edge off hits and pedal like a hardtail.  I still feel like I'm going to break it at some point, but it will be my fault.  I will say this.  If you are looking for a XC race/endurance bike, I don't see how you could beat the cost effectiveness of this frame.  If you have lots of extra income, get a SF 100 or Tallboy, but for about $900 for a legit 4 lb. frame, this is hard to beat.  I did put a MRP chain guide and Ignitors on it (tubeless).  Weighed it today after riding and it was 24 lbs. 4 oz. (w/bottle cage, and Ergons).  I'll review it again after the fork adjustment and some tweaking.  By the way, I bent the der. hanger Wed. on Gatorback, but was able to bend it back.  I have a new one on the way.
