I've climbed up a wet root like, 3 times in the last year and a half, hahah

Ha! Lucky !

I was going to say, unlucky Wink

I love some good ol’ wet jank

Nope, definitely lucky. Keep your wet wood! I'll happily trade it for powdery dust and bone dry roots (most of the time).

I've actually spent so little time riding wet trails after months of drought, that didn't even know what to do when I came up to a sloppy bundle of roots after it finally rained. Took my brain a minute to process. I can never ride confident when I don't know where my front end will most-likely end up. Even dust/sand I find way more predictable.

I hear ya. You can definitely send it when they’re dry. I don’t really have a choice out here where I live. 8 months out of the year you can guarantee you’ll have this…

I'd either be a better rider, or way worse from less riding if that was what was on offer for my trails.

when in doubt, wheelie it out. your front wheel can't slip when it's up in the air.

You get used to it. Honestly, I think I like it because the forests are beautiful when they’re misty and wet out here.

Maxxgrip, low psi and cushcore help with wet ass roots.

I was pretty pumped to see my bike make it onto this thread! I’ll be sure to get some proper pics of it when this white stuff goes away!

Beautiful bike. It seems the front end/rear end ratio a little disproportionate to me, but that is the magic of custom geo

Classic Brad Walton shot. Perks of having a riding buddy that’s always down to bring a camera
