Nice looking bike

90 days… Nice. I hit the park a grand total of 41 times last season.

90 is very impressive. If I remember correctly I got 29.

I also almost didn't buy a DH bike this year but I couldn't resist. Got about 12 days of park on it already plus a few days of local riding though so I don't feel so bad :)

I am going to be getting one of those in the spring, can't wait, the test rides I took it on at crankworx were a blast

i rode my dh bike a grand total of once last year. sad to have a (originally) expensive piece of hardware sitting around gathering dust, but it is fun to drag out for the occasional whistler rip.

^This… I find when it gots really hot in the interior and I am feeling too lazy to pedal much that the DH bike is a nice change… but it still gets under utilized for sure.

Your website doesn't even list gravity bikes so that must be a Trek.

I was thinking its the often seen, slow to production Flatline (or whatever) prototype that's been floating around the interwebs. Which oddly enough looks kind of like a Trek.

I also barely rode my dh bike last year, probably less than 5 times. I want to do it more, kind of, but the park just didn't really get my attention last year and I'm not into shuttling…..leaning towards enduroz super bike as I forsee much of my lift-access use to mostly be to get to other stuff on the southside.

I'm gonna keep mine for a rainy day. Doesn't owe me anything and there's always a time where a park or throwback shuttle day will be in order. I've regretted selling bikes in the past when the one time you need it you don't have it.
