 @mtbakerpow: depends.

for mountain biking, oh yeah it can be. But I believe you because you live in same area/climate. But I've ridden on a day or two in my life, nuking rain, that i think pretty much destroyed most moving parts on my bike and the clean up was almost as long as the ride. Memorable? Sure, but not in a good way.

 @bighitfsr04: Yup. Swan Creek.

 @cyclocrossmonkey: that’s swan creek? I️ had no idea SC had that kind of trails. I️ has always figured there wasn’t much to it but wow. Looks like I️ need to head south for some rides

 @Deanosuar: Don't waste your time. That most certainly was not Swan Creek. I live about 30 minutes away from there and I'd rather drive farther for better riding.

Someone below is saying Bellingham which seems likely since that looks more like it. Plus the guys behind the video all seem like they're from there.

 Thats how its done, kids! Silky smooth, didn't skid every corner, chill music that was in the background instead of front and center. No overly gratuitous sponsor footage. A little, but not a lot. Nice filming @bchapel, smooth riding @joecrosby

 Thanks a lot man, glad you enjoyed it. @joecrosby and I had a good time making it.
  • + 2
 Exactly! Beyond everything else mentioned above, the audio was very well mixed. Loved the perfect balance between mellow background music and the raw sounds of riding. Looking forward to your next edit

 Wet ?? My trails have not been that dry all year !

 I once got to ride a dry trail....... not bragging or nowt
  • + 3
 Was thinking the same. I laugh when people talk about wet weather gear.....we just call it gear.
  • + 14
 Being one of the few ppl who may have dug on some of these trails, it be great if you didn't share exact locations as they are on private land like @mikekazimer said! Come to Bellingham we will show you.

 No flannell and no sound garden?

 Good question...cr29 would lean me towards a 29" but looks like they have a cr29 in both 275 and 29. And now that all evils take piggback shock its hard to tell em apart from quick vid snapshots..

 Evil Calling! It’s a bit shorter travel, but it’ll tackle anything as long as you’re confident!

 @jrocksdh: The 29 in CR29 refers to the 29mm inside width. If anyone has any questions feel free to hit me up. -Russ
