City of Angels to Moab

well I finally built my 2 Mavericks for the year I will get pics up soon. I have an ML8 which is my Primary bike for everything!!! Then I decided to build up an '07 Durance that has mainly been my commuter/product tester. Riding in at 2 deg. really slows the rebound.
I was in Cali last week visiting a few Mags, all in all the trip was good. I hit up MBA, DECLINE and BIKE
I had a one of bastard bike we built, basically an ML8 with another inch of travel and no paint....we call it the "Naked 8" I was out there to meet the mag guys and check in with them, but I grabbed the naked 8 at the last minute. It should be around keep and eye out, were only making 10!!! The Decline guys were rad, basically 3 dudes my age trying to make a kick ass mag. From there I went to a Video Premiere thing of Earthed 5 that BIKE was throwing to benefit local trails. It was fun cool to see everyone, sounds like bike week this year is a go.
The nest day I headed to Crank Brothers cool place, we did some speedball tech shit. Then Headed to Garage Works....Delecruz has got it Down!!!! A Mechanics Dream... A full Wrench only Bus. I hung out with him and his beer fridge, and some crank wheels. The next day was a ride with Lou at Bike, the trail we rode was super busy but fun, and hour and half climb on flat pedals and a single 36 tooth ring up front burned me out......
My family was here this last weekend it was great to see them and show them Layla, she is getting big, and smart too.
This week I head to Moab on Wed. Hitting a few dealers on the way down, then we have a crew of 20+ riders for a moto weekend in Moab. I am hoping to do a Porc Rim Shuttle ride early thurs before Moto Chaos starts.
