The Northwest is ridiculous when it comes to mountain biking. If you're ever up here give me a call. Some of the best riding in the country. I've been out of commission for a while due to kid & work but I'm looking for any excuse to get back in the saddle.

I built up an Ellsworth Joker. It's a decent rig but lacks in rear travel. Happened upon a great deal ($2K frame closed out for $500) so I went that route and built it up. Looking to upgrade but I haven't earned it. According to crew i rode with you have to earn the equipment. I like that idea. If you've got a fancy bike you better be good or expect mockery!

Have you ever ridden the slick rock trail in Moab? I never knew rubber could be so sticky. That definitely is an experience that translates to 4by-in as well.

Ellsworth makes a nice bike. I bet the riding up in Portland is sick - was up at Hood for a couple days last June - didn't have my bike but scouted a little singletrack that looked fun.
