    I was thinking of hitting the Backbone sometime soon (dreaming). Anyone been through there?

    @mtnbikej and I rode a stretch of it not too long ago... On the day that will forever be known as the day a certain forum owner (ha hem... @Mikie) forgot to bring shoes and was unable to ride. :whistling:

    There are a couple of guys on here who ride in that area more often, though... Paging @bigringrider101, @UPSed , and @Luis. Information please!


    Edit: Damn. Ed is forum fast!

    Yes, I've done that route before. Have you ridden on it since we have had all the rain? Is it damaged?

    I have not. I doubt it's got any major damage though.

    Anyone ridden Sycamore Canyon recently?

    Are the trails all rutted and brake-bumped out?

    Overlook FR is just fine
    Backbone ST is in better shape than Guadalasca which is kinda rutted and full of brake bumps.
    Just go fast and let the suspension do all the work :thumbsup:
