Nice, I've been wanting to build a tween'er (between 20in & 26in) DJ bike for a while. Let me know what you think. Also is that's an air spring Argyle you might what to dump a little float fluid or the Rockshox equivalent in the air spring chamber to give you a little more progression in spring rate with out having to punch the spring rate up so much in the early stroke and lose your compliance in the berms. Its what I do on most of my short travel jumpy bikes with air forks. Also some prep (facing cut + graphite grease) on the internal campy style headset cups will save you a lot of creeks down the road. Have fun at Ray's, I've always wanted to visit.

Fell in love with mountain biking while riding my brothers bike last year. So I finally got around to buying my first entry-level mountain bike, and I love it!

Its a Windsor Cliff 29er

First ride on the new Giant Anthem X 29er this morning, here's my first impression.
This bike is fast and stable, I still have the somewhat heavy wheels and tubes (I know) on the bike but it really gets out of it's own way! It can accelerate very quickly but it will take a bit more out of your legs to do so. Steering precision at any speed is laser accurate and holds the intended line like a champ. I really enjoyed the Rock Shox dampers at both ends, I turned the platform off going down into Crow Brook and forgot to turn it back on will no feel of lost efficiency going up the Switchbacks. The Hope Race X2 Evo brakes were fantastic as was my first experience with Schwalbe Racing Ralph Evo tires (2.1R & 2.25" F). I felt little to no learning curve and really didn't adjust my riding style much on todays loop. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about riding this bike and can't wait to transform it by losing a half kilo from the wheels and chucking the tubes at the Devil.

Just an update I guess. I had another addition to the quiver. Added a single speed fat bike. I LOVE it......



another angle


The rest of my quiver is back on page 14 I think.

Never enough riding.

My passion for mountain biking has pretty much taken over my passion for cars. I still love my forester, but now it's tricked out with bike racks and used a lot for hauling my buddies around to ride!

Here is a video of a local trail I built. It is of me following a riding buddy.
It is where I spend a lot of my free time now either riding or building trail!

Nice line! Where is it? Not sure it that's top secret so forgive me if it is. I know how you feel about the car thing, the bike(s) is just way more fun plus no ones going to hassle you for throwing as big whip and two wheel drifting around some corners (most of the time). Any ways nice line. Going to be up in Seattle this month I'll shoot PM maybe we can hook up for a ride. Like wise if you in Oregon hit me up and I'll show you around. Cheers.

The trail is next to the Tapeworm in the Renton area, a few block from my house. Not sure if your familiar with the riding in the Seattle area, but it is one of the more popular places to ride and I'm the steward for the area.

Definitely hit me up when your up here and I'll show you all the great places to ride. We ride 3x a week, so we are always out on the trails!

Duthie Hill is a new bike park up here that is really popular. You got everythign from mellow XC to BIG freeride lines. It's a great place for any time of rider.

Right on! Yeah a keep hearing about Duthie and "some cool trails in Renton" which now I've see POV style from of your video, very cool, thanks. Any ways, I'll probably be up that way near the end of the month and I'll be sure to shoot you a PM. Likewise, if you down this way hit me up and I'll give you Sandy or Post Canyon nickle tour. Off to the pump track.
