Just realized you're missing a front brake. That bike ain't WBP allowed. Don't know about Coast.

Nice bike!

Are you only sticking to flow trails and never miss a tranny? If so, you're golden.

I'd curl into the fetal position and let myself die if I took that down some technical single track.

This won't be my only bike, put it that way. I know I'd need a front brake to ride WBP and coast, I don't mind buying another brake to put on when I choose to try coast.
I had to sell my XC bike to make the move, so this will be my primary for a month or two until I can find a used dual suspension.
Plan on sticking to the city/pump tracks/dirt jumps until then, although, I wouldn't mind taking it down a smooth flow run or two.
Had it out today on our single track and some "paved" paths out here, still lots of snow/ice and mud, definitely was a tiring ride trying to keep up with my buddy on his fat bike, but felt good to be out.
Keep in mind everything is very flat out here, steep uphill climbs, short downhill sections (like don't blink short).
If I was doing single track out there I think I'd want something other than a single speed as well.

Just got back from a couple days at cgp, place still rocks. Some new stuff since I was last there and staff were saying a new trail that'll be single black jumps like coastal cruise but smaller and not gaps is coming soon.

^^^ Nice pic. Is that one of the newer trails? When I rode there in Jan/Feb the top straight section was a fresh loamer, so fun to ride especially inside of a bike park.
