After a short discussion, Mrs Angry decided that what once was difficult is now easy:

I saw a Bald Eagle in this spot last week, it flew 20' away in passing while looking for something
to eat in The River. This bird is Angry:

Damn right. I've now resolved to move to wherever-the-hell-JD-lives, because you can apparently ride
in January without full fingered gloves, a balaclava, base-and-wind layers...and there, you can
still have fun.

That photo looks absolutely incredible...I imagine it is the Fruita area you always champion...where
was that shot taken?

I'll understand if it is to remain a secret :).

Apparently Paul Turner is giving 'ol Gary a boost. Angry had demoed one of those under a different
name at FFTF 2001 and loved it. Other than the stock tires, he seems very pleased with the bike and
rode it like the madman that he is.

I've ridden one of those. Shop wrench has one. We swapped bikes on a ride last Fall. WAY comfy for
the down direction, but it sure did seem to have a bunch of pedal-induced bob when climbing.

I'm curious, is that design supposed to be really good or not so good for inhibiting
pedal-induced bob?

I'm curious because I've never owned a real fully. Is the Klein typical, or better/worse
than typical?

Mary's Loop is far from secret. In fact, it's usually where we send eastern flatlander beginner type
riders like john hardlow. If the exposure doesn't get 'em, the altitude will.

I can't comment on the Klien/Maverick, and have not ridden all the fullies out there, but my Truth
bobs a bit, as do all the others I have ridden, or have seen being ridden. It doesn't bother me,
I've adjusted my style to it and I still find it makes me a little faster and better than on my
hardtail. I would like to see and ride the full-suspension bike that does not bob at all, yet soaks
up many of the bumps, but I am not convinced it is out there right now.

Well, thanks for thinking of me, JD! I'm flattered.

Yep; it probably would kick my ass. I'm pathetically out of shape right now - too many other
things going on.

It is supposed to be much better than other fullies. I've ridden one around town and it felt pretty
firm, but that's not a very good test. People (whose opinions I'd respect on such things) seem to
think they are the shiznit.

Gag. I think you made a much more sensible choice. URTs are dead for a reason.
