I have finally kicked most of this crud out of my system and I’m getting jazzed about heading out to Arizona for the weekend to visit with some friends and hit up some trail goodness out there. I’m going to “Intensify” my longer-traveled bike stables here in the near future so the fellows at Intense hooked me up with a bling bling sled for the weekend so I made a little visit up to Temecula. I’ll be kicking this 6.6 around for the weekend. This bike is a beauty!
I did not have a lot of time today, so I hit up one of my local rides, the La Costa Preserve, after picking up the bike. I went up Switchback, down NASCAR, up Vista Del Mar and down NASCAR again. I spent a bit of time dialing in the suspension. My first impression is pretty freaking awesome. I had to sum up that first impression in five words or less it would be:
Climbs Well, Descents Great!
I feel it out more over the weekend, stay tuned.
