Dave C. and I just had to get out today and do some riding. The crusty snow was tough but do-able. I had to ride my new 96er/69er/whatever that I just built. I can't say it was better or worse than using a 26" front wheel, but it did seem to roll right along in the rough. We rode New Corby 1st and followed some tracks laid by 2.1 Motoraptors (I measured em). We then went to the new stuff at the scout camp area and these same tracks were there a couple of places also. I gotta believe we followed Mr. Jason , as he is the only one I know of currently running tires like these front and rear.
The trails at the scout camp were a bitch to ride most places. They are gonna be great once they get cleaned up and a track gets set. We need to be getting out there and finishing the rough cutting of the whole loop so it can be clean by the time the ground starts drying in the Spring. Soil compaction can't happen in the wet, but the rest can be done for when the time is right to ride the piss out of it and set it hard. This is gonna be our best trail yet! Peace.
