Lake placid, the hardy trails. It's really Wilmington just down the road from whiteface. Lot of nice trails up there!

Thanks man, I appreciate it. I've been through a ton of different truck truck/bike hauling setups starting with welding up my own and this is very functional and leaves the entire bed space for semi-dry storage under the BakFlip. I can have the rack and cover off in 5 minutes and ready to haul dirtbike or firewood etc.
One last pic with yours truly rocking the ghey, please don't shoot me I'm notta deer orange jersey.

Real shit photo but here's my '12 Santa Cruz Tallboy. I could not recommend this frame highly enough to anyone thinking about a new bike, especially if you're going to 29". Dream to ride.

Aaron that is an awesome setup. I need to come up with something. Right now I have the Thule 3 bike rack that hooks into the tow hitch. I am going to start riding with groups greater then 3 riders so I will have to come up with something. I want a bed cover as well so I will have to check out the bakflip. I like the out of sight security it would provide. I like the thought of welding my own bike rack as well. So many ideas right now

I have the Fibermax and I think I paid between 600-700$ iirc.

Edit: I ordered at Truckaddons.com and dealt with Scott Nauman and he was great. Fast shipping.

Sorry I missed the Berryman, but I had a great ride at Greensfelder on Sunday! There was a trail run or something on Saturday, and they were kind enough to blow leaves off several sections of trail.

Almost launched into an uphill rider's chest at one point. There's a fast downhill with a root drop that is a blast to launch off of, and going up it you have to crank pretty hard to keep enough momentum to make it up the roots. The tree providing the roots was blocking the sight line, and some dude was cranking up the hill focused on the roots. I saw him at the last second and diverted. Ruined my fun, but probably not as much as crashing my front tire into his chest would have been.

Damn Rich, I'm glad the crisis was averted! Keep me posted on Syllamo.
The only drawback I've noticed with above bed bike transport is worrying about low clearance issues, garage etc. I hang a red ribbon down in front of opener button to avoid the crunch.
Eddie, are those Thule sidearms your running?

WOW. She's beautiful. Kind of overkill unless you are a racer or just made of money. For a solid downhill bike at a reasonable price, I would look at the Specialized Status II. MSRP at $3300 is a great deal.

The pricing for the DHX RC4 equipped '13 V10 is still a reasonable $3500 for frame only. Not bad for a podium proven frame. Shaving 1.5lbs from the outgoing '12 frame w/aluminum triangle is just the cherry on top. IIRC the frame only Specialized Demo 8 carbon lists at $4000.

Some people are skeptical on what strength has been sacrificed from shaving the 700 grams, but I'm certain 90% of riders who do get their hands on a 2013 V10 will never subject it to the abuse the Syndicate riders have been all season while testing.

That said, I might have a medium '12 V10c mint, unbuilt frame w/DHX RC4 Kashima for sale soon.
