Or you could skip the hours of making proper patterns and pay someone a little $, so you can enjoy doing other things other than having a crash course on flattening surfaces into patterns. Shit I've been professionally trained how to do it, and I'd rather pay for it.

The whole process of cutting, cleaning the frame with alcohol, putting it on the frame took me about a day I guess. So definitely not for everyone. But the option is there if someone feels inclined to Smile .

With the chance of not being able to go to whistler this year being high. What are some US Bike parks worth looking into? Currently live in CO and wanting to try other parks. Have ridden Angel Fire and most parks in CO. Was looking at Highlands Ranch but curious if there's others.

How far are you willing to travel? You could do a tour of the northeast and hit up Mountain Creek (NJ), Thunder (MA), Killington (VT), Highland (NH) and some of the others if you’ve got a lot of time.

CA has Northstar and Mammoth. As well as some great non-lift access riding.

hit up bootleg canyon outside of Vegas for some desert gnar but not recommended in summer. it's my favorite park. Snowshoe is a close second for outstanding natural beauty and crazy technical trails

Snow summit midweek is the spot. With all the T1 11 siding up there and no people it’s like going back in time to the 70s. Mrgonzo is right try bootleg it will be like nothing you have ridden before

I ride bootleg last month. It was fun. Much different than trails out here in CO. Theres some gnarly and exposed lines out there.

That was my dream bike for many years !
Untill I knew some one who had one, dude went through so many swing arms from cracking!
Still think it looks amazing though.

Haha, yes indeed! Mine is a mk2 and the swingarm is bent from hitting a tree pretty hard (not cracked though)
A mate of mine had the mk1 and cracked and rewelded the swingarm so many times it was eventually more weld than plate.
Both blew up shocks regularly. I used to take 2 shocks to Morzine with me each year, and would inevitably have to run both over the course of a 2 week holiday.
I still have fond memories of how it rode even now though.
