    I did the TrueGrit twice. I'm unsure about 2020.

    I always wanted to try one of there AZ events, but the overall feeling I get using their website is of an "underground" event.
    For me, a good website with cool promo clips is the induction of a first-class operation/promotion (for example the Epic series).

    The last thing I want is to travel all the way to AZ and find out that the event is poorly run or have a super low attendant. Have you ever attended any of their events?

    I am in as well. Are you guys really racing it singlespeed? I still need to register but I am 99% sure that I am going to race as our weekend up there was awesome and now I want to see what I can do in a race setting.

    Racing is a loose term. My goal is to not be DFL.

    But yeah, going back to the SS.

    Rode in your neck of the woods, last weekend. Did the Luge last Sunday. Great descent, a little short. Rode from cooks Corner up STT to Old Camp and then back and descended Luge. A long drive and a lot of climb but met up with an old friend so was worth it.

    Awesome.
    Luge is a bit overrated.

    My race pace is the same as my every day pace. :Roflmao

    I've done it once each way- SS and FS. Now that I've ridden Zen and Barrel Roll quite a few times, I think I can get down it just fine on the single speed. I may even leave the dropper at home.

    I'll walk the waterfall (that we didn't see last month...) no matter which bike I take. I'd have to spend a looooonnngggg time out there to even come close to cleaning it. I did the first two little drops and then had no clue where to go. :eek:

    I'll have to decide which bike to ride. I am planning on doing the Whiskey Off road in April on my SS so maybe doing True Grit 50 will not be so bad. Only problem with my is the old geometry with a 72.5 degree headtube and stuff. Total cross country. Not sure how much fun it would be on Zen and the stuff I didn't see. Barrel Roll and obviously Bearclaw Poppies would be fine.
