I managed a quick 20k before work in the trails early this morning while the T° was in the mid-teens. The deer flies were relentless...

That must be nothing on a bicycle when you can run it.

...though maybe it's exactly the sort of thing I should be riding, to get skills and confidence up for being airborne

Hard one today. Dopey me decided to venture in one of the many ATV trail. I swear it was uphill both ways with large rocks, mud, many water holes and tire ruts. Needless to say, it was slow going. I had to walk the bike in some spots. The bike got a good hose down with the pressure washer.

My AD is coming on Tuesday to pick-up my bike for a full spa performance update or... a new upgrade.

Kiddie MTB park. It's actually pretty good if you want to safely practice your jumps and exercise your front forks.

Nice downhill park day. Destroyed my elbow pads, but at least I still have elbows.

Well, I didn't ride fast but also didn't die... 180th of 331 in masters, 11th of 19 hardtails. Couldn't expect much better than that given my fitness and preparation levels!

I don't ride and I know I would be way slower than this women. Maybe some will find this video cool.

We call these pump tracks, not sure if it`s universal. The idea is to go round as fast as possible without peddling by pumping the back of the rollers.

Thank you so much. I really appreciate the opinions of the Pros on the Forum.
I went for my fitting early this morning and the bike is to be delivered tomorrow morning. I was going to take an actual picture but the place was a little crowded.

I got mine in Teal. Real pic tomorrow.

For sure - always need a pic on NBD!

Roscoe is a great bike - nice for trails and fire roads, but can handle a bit of chunk too with the air fork.

My 7yo daughter uses a 20" Roscoe and loves it.

You’re going to love it!! I just rolled over 100 miles on my Roscoe 7. Finally got my cockpit and seat exactly where I want them. Absolutely fantastic bike.

Yep! I love them, never used Chesters or anything but they're awesome. Had the same PNW grips and pedals on my previous Cannondale too, just a different color. I'm probably about to pull the trigger on their short stem!
