rebel and i went riding saturday. nice weather. high teens low twenties so it was nice and comfortable. we got snow early this week and then it got just above freezing for two days in a row, then it dropped down to around 10 for two nights. i was hoping for real crusty, icy snow and some sled trails. instead the snow was real fluffy, things werent frozen over yet and no snowmobiles had been out! fun none the less. by the end of the day i had ripped all but two studs out of my rear tire. too many log and rock crossings. so im going to have to re-think how i stud my tires. i wont mention how many times reble went down. *cough* 10-12 *cough* heres a couple pics, the cold zapped my camera battery so i couldnt get many. reble has a few more hopefully he'll post up.


the best thing about bikes, no trailer needed.

thats the 1 good thing about riding in the cold and snow, if you fall you just dust yourself off , really dont notice the wet until it all melts when your done riding

There was between 12-16 inches of snow that day. past 20 inches of snow you better not loose the momentum or you are Fuck :)

one thing you need is a set of Maxxis 4Snow tire otherwise forget it
