Puttin' It Down!

Can you see my newish fork?

I finished building up my front end with Craig's help on Friday night. The nearly new Fox Talas runs great, I took the 160mm of plush travel for a spin on the trails behind the house early in the day Saturday. But the fun didn't really begin until I got home and Craig and I decided to play around out back on the step downs. We decided to give the bigger step down a go today, Craig first of course. He really had the balls to send it first, that was the one thing I was waiting for, to see the landing. And of course it was perfect, so fun, a steeper transition for sure and scarier approach but sweet and inspiring once dialed. It took me a couple tries before I was landing seamlessly into the transition but what a feeling. So here is a picture of me and a couple of videos, one of Craig and one of myself sending it..Awesome, I'm so glad we finally did it!

The fork is nice, I'm still getting used to pushing a little more weight around. I haven't weighed the bike but I kinda don't want to.
I notice I granny gear it more now, but it makes doing step downs nice and plush.(:
