    The big g-out on that run is gnarly on full rigid. Haha.

    I see now that JJ does those little flicks normally. I smirked when I noticed him doing that when I was following him earlier.

    BTW, that squeaking noise after oh-Sh!t-rock (first mini moab feature) leaves much to the imagination.

    Sycamore looks like too damn much fun. Gotta make the drive some time and have one of you experts show me around!

    Thanks for the videos - short, raw and to the point (shows the fun techy stuff). :cool:

    It is a lot of fun. It is somewhat unusual in that it isn't really a trail, but a network. You can pick and chose segments and link them together how you like, or keep lapping the same segment. It really is best to go out there with someone who knows the trails and your abilities to guide you around until you know the place.

    I'll listen again later to see what you mean :)

    I have ridden 275 miles in Sycamore Canyon, but 260 of them have been the same XCish loop with coworker and friends. The only other ride I can get them to do out there is counterclockwise. Good in the rain anyway.

    We meet every Thursday night. But we can be dragged out on weekends too.

    Ouch! We mix it up every ride. Different trails in different orders. Adjust to who shows up, have different people lead out.

    I have been out there often and have not seen those trails. I have done the plunge. Gotta get together when the temps break.

    That's why I wanted to put the clips out with Strava segment links so people can see what is out there. I still have more I haven't posted yet, and more to record.

    Looks like fun. Especially with all those "Oh Crap" moments when choosing the wrong line at speed :sneaky:

    I like to make all three runs on the south side of Alessandro to start my day, and then hit Sycamore proper. Always super fun out there.

    The general rule of checking out an obstacle before attempting applies here :)

    Yes they are. There is also a set of hooters that are often seen at dusk. Big beautiful hooters.

    Thanks, the videos make sense now. Rode there many times but none this year, maybe next week.
