Thats a sweet bike! I was really into free riding/trials/downhill, XC got me to tired lol.<br><br>
Id love to get another bike one day but the only way i could do that is to sell my rig <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">

I really want a new fork, but I should probably get a new frame too, which would mean no upgrades on the rig for months! ;.;

XCs my thing, I must admit. Just this second get a new Hope headset through the post, and fitted some Panaracer Fire XCs - The summer destroyed my old headset and tyres.<br>

Trial riding is so hard. ><<br><br>
With BMX'x you can 360º easily, trial bikes, not so easy.

XC is always misunderstood.<br>
Just think of it as: XC up it. Freeride down it.

</div>I envy you for being able to go <b>back</b> there.<br />
Nothing even close to that over here in the UK. That's why I'm an XC whippet. No real freeride for UK riders.<br />
(Plus I haven't got the guts <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />)<br />

I got lucky and was able to let my grandparents pick up the $300 a day (CAD rates) rental and lift tickets. If I ever went back, I'd have to pay to ride the $6,000 bikes. Maybe I could work there and ride for free...
