Well some of the cash went to this. Can't wait to hit the trails. And bomb some downhill.

North park I'm guessing? It's got the most known trails in the area.

Removed some safety equipment and put my primo pedals on. Probably going to shorten the seat post and change out the seat.

It's got shocks, pegs, lucky. You ever take it off any sweet jumps. Can I try it really quick.

Jokes aside looks like a lot of fun! I have a buddy who does downhill trails says he gets going around 40mph, must need a beefy bike and nuts of titanium for that shit.

I'm having a blast with this bike. Part of me wishes I spent a little more and got full suspension. I would be looking around $2500 then. My wife still reminds me that I spend $1500 on this one. I still want to get grips, seat, bars, maybe different tires. These can't handle hard turns when it's dry.
