 I love a Joe Barnes video. But does anyone else watch that and just think they wouldn't enjoy that either?

 I've done a few of those and you are correct, they are challenges rather than funs Smile

 There’s a dude on Instagram, @grizzly_munro_diaries who’s made it a mission to ride all the munroes (mountains overs 1000m I believe) in Scotland. He’s got lots of similar stuff.

 @SangamonTaylor: mountains over 3,000 ft (914.4 m); A corbett is 2,500–3,000 ft (762.0–914.4 m) but only in Scotland.

 Ugh. Reminds me of the CO trail between Molas Pass and Durango. Unspeakably beautiful vistas and miserable scree / rock riding sans flow. Technically "rideable" but pure misery...

Major props for staying upright on that bodge of a trail! : )

 There is a loop you can do from the lochan you see at the end (still 750m ish up). but from there to the top is a straight up hike-a-bike.

 @Hazzard-Racing: and the only reason I know it is that the specs on your custom builds are still available on the orange website... Love you guys, keep it up!
