Jamaica Fat Tyre Festival - Part I

Wow! Thanks for posting this. I visited the west coast of Jamiaca on a family vacation with my inlaws. Unfortunately, they were of the mindset that Jamiaca is dangerous and we shouldn't leave the resort grounds. I knew this was false and I was very curious to see some local attractions which I had heard about, but I wasn't paying for the trip so I went along with the crowd. I've always wanted to go back on my own and explore more of the island, check out more local culture, and ride some of their trails. Seems like Fat tire festival is a good time to go, but I'm betting room rates are higher that week.

I'm a beliver!

I visited my uncle in Ft. Worth area TX this past Thanksgiving. He has a couple of 29ers (Vassago Bandersnatch and a Jabberwocky). He took me for a ride on the Lake Grapevine trail network and ever since then I've been dying to get my own big wheels. I've been debating whether to sell my current ride until now. I'm glad I waited this long because Santa Cruz just realesed their Aluminum version of the Highball which is what I think I'm gonna get. I was not at all considering getting a 29er. In fact I only rode one because that was the only bike my uncle had for me. It was definitely love at first ride. I never knew uphills could be fun too. Anyway, I got a buyer for my current bike and I've sold some other stuff, so it won't be long now until I own my first 29er.
