Switched to Atlas 35 bars (not in photo). Been the same rig for the last few years.

My venerable M9 will see no changes for 2015… can barely justify owing it as it is. Only about 5 days on it in 2014, maybe more this year.

Actually contemplating parting out my DH rig to build a 120mm trail bike. Only rode mine 4-5 times last year as well.

F me too. Totally regret buying my DH bike last year. Now I'm faced with taking a major bath on it.

I actually rode my DH bike way more that my 160mm AM bike. Didn't even assemble the 160mm bike for 2014 :lol:

I'm a weirdo that rode the park about 80 or 90 days last summer, though some of those days can be like 3 laps. '15 glory coming in spring :)
Love DH riding but if I lived pretty much anywhere else I would go 1 trail bike

After some days in the park decided to change my trustworthy slayer to new Darkside! L size, retro wheels, wide range castte for some pedalling in case of shuttle absence.

Happy with it, having more fun
