This project was a group effort to highlight some of our favourite things that have drawn us to Mountain biking in the first place: building, riding, hooting and hollering down a trail with your friends and creating an artistic piece to remember the good times by all of which I'd say most fellow riders can relate to. Here's to more of that.

 So Amazing! My friends and I built Amuse Bouche (www.trailforks.com/trails/amuse-bouche) and Hors d'oeuvre (www.trailforks.com/trails/hors-d-oeuvre), but now I'm in the heart of Toronto! So few ferns and creeks!

 Loam (/lōm/): a soil with roughly equal proportions of sand, silt, and clay.

 Misusing the term “Loam” ranks right up there with calling shocks “dampeners”

 Cool video...but I was wondering why he was wearing husky bracers while operating a stihl saw? That's like riding a session with giant brand wheels.

 @Twopliszkas: In the video (1:14) he's running a Husky powerhead with Stihl light bar. Pretty common these days.

 It’s either a Transition Sentinel or Spire. Can’t tell which one but it’s definitely a Transition

 @zadrozny91: I just got an ohlins edition madonna 2 months back. Hands down the best bike i've ever ridden. My only small complaint is the nearly 39 pound weight (double down tires, cush core, dominion A4 brakes). Its extremely smooth and quiet, keeps up with DH bikes, and has taken the biggest hit ive ever taken on a bike casing a road gap. I'm positive that if I was riding a carbon trial bike from last year, the bike would not have survived. Get the madonna, you wont regret it!

 @scubasteve278: yeah I'll be looking at replacing my 21 spec status next year and madonna is high on the list especially I can buy it in europe when I go visit home and can get decent pricing on it...

how's climbing been for you?
  • 2 0
 @zadrozny91: climbing isn't terrible and I dont find the weight to really affect the climbing much. The only time I notice the weight is on really mellow trails or anything thats not pointing down. If your average ride is winch to the top to shred down, you will have no regrets. I've ridden multiple bikes from multiple big brands, and it is hands down the best descender and most confidence inspiring bike I've ridden. Ive had a few friends take a test ride and they all have the same feedback...super confidence inspiring and way more solid feel then their bikes (stumpy evo, rm altitude, trek slash)
