good thing its been a "good" winter, i'm a little behind posting pics, there has been 2 good snow storms for me to ride it... if i got it any later with no snow, lets say mid March... i would have really had a problem with that LBS. :x

Wow! That's a long wait. :? But it's here now.. so nothing to do but ride.. ride… ride.

I have some friends that have gotten some sweat bikes. Carbon Beargrease, Carbon Borealis, Ti Carver… :? :( I want a new bike. I am seriously looking at the better Specialized model. I kind of would like to sell my Moonlander and replace that with the Ice Cream truck also. :twisted:

I'm purdy sure he made it part of his pre-season order ... just wish he would have told me, it was gonna be a 5 mo. wait ... I missed out on 3 good snow storms, but good thing there where 3 good ones after I got it.

yeah knowing up front always helps in things like that… at least you got some snow for it. Right now the trails are pretty sweet here.

That looks fun. :D I have seen some blue quads, but I don't think they were the same company.
