manitou marketing 101

gotta love it when a gun case comes with a new suspension fork. God bless those folks over at Manitou......they must know the folks in their targeted market awefully well. Gun yielding mountain biker radicals. HHmmmm, i wonder if my 30-06 would fit ?

oh yeah, almost forgot....Manitou Dorado Pro 29er w/ 180mm of travel. Woot-woot.

early ride

early AM ride on frozen solid, crunchy dirt. Squint your eyes real hard....just left of the dirt road at ten o'clock is a small herd of elk. They didn't quite know what to make of me. Warily suspicious of this intrusion they i tip toed past them and tried not to stop and oogle to much.
it was a good ride and a fantastic start to the day.

Fat Bike snow ride last night with Bill and Norman under the glare of last nights full moon. Incredible evening, temps in the upper teens and snow conditions were near perfect. Honestly, it doesn't get much better than this.....does it ?? Long live winter.

Great History lesson

mountain biking ?? Missoula to St Louis, that's a long distance. 1900 Miles to be exact.

night ride

Skalkaho hwy night ride photo taken at the gate after Chris and I rode this past week. Groomed for snowmobiles in the winter, the packed snow makes great terrain for the large volume tires of the Pugsley and Mukluk. See Skalkaho Falls iced over, ride to the top of the pass. Try it on a bicycle.
