    Drove in from Oceanside today and arrived to 92 degree temps and windy. Got out on a Slim Shady to Little Horse to Llama loop down in the Oak Creek area of Sedona. Good 1st ride. I was messing with my helmet and almost took an inadvertent 3-4 foot drop on Slim Shady. My Bike actually went but I stayed up top :bang:

    Ummmm, your avatar mentions two Intense bikes. What's this Santa Cruz crap? Did you drink the Kool-Aid too?

    That’s my “old” bike I keep around. I prefer a 27.5 out here but don’t need the 160/165 of travel my Tracer has :rolleyes: Its going to my son when he gets back from his deployment in 2019 so I have an excuse to get something else

    If your Tracer is too squishy for Sedona, why not the Primer? Why do you prefer the 27.5?

    Can I assume your next bike will be a Santa Cruz? It's the law.

    I like a 27.5 for all the tighter, twisty stuff. No idea on next bike. YT 29er intrigues me but don’t like all the E13 stuff. That new black Ripmo looks good, I may demo one in Downieville.
