We had a mega-productive day up on Mt. Fromme this past Sunday. Myself and Jerry Willows were shooting photos between work sessions, and the crazy weather made for some great shots.

Digger was also here. Perfect 14 foot radius.

I carved out that berm!*

*Although I'll concede that if Digger hadn't told me where to cut it, it could have turned into a clusterfuck of gongshows :lol:

wow you are a ass

I never want a trail day to end, although I was pretty happy to get into a hot shower after that one!

To the crew that came out: thanks for kicking so much ass - it was astounding how quickly things came together.

Morgan and Jerry: great job on the photos, especially given the amount of precip in various forms that never seemed to dissipate.

amazing turn out for the weather we had. Looks like mid November for the last one this year.

MT gives his approval.

I'm curious - is a 14 ft radius perfect for 26", 29" or 650b?

(actually, I'm serious Jerry - is there validity behind the 14 foot radius spec?)

Corners are more of a wheelbase thing than tire size.
Building is a combination of art of science but I build corners based on flow and terrain.

14 feet is Digger's magic number.
