Generally okay riding in the rocks, deep sand, gravel, snow. Less okay on tight singletrack and greasy mud.
Some days you come to appreciate the difference between a new set of D606s versus partially worn set of K270s -not that I'm one to blame his tools.

Great find. I look enviously at the pics of members newer gen 2s with their shiny paint, lack of scratches and all round near-new condition. Now that includes your bike! Looks good.

She's a beaut and you've done some great off road riding.

I see you are in Sacto. I grew up in Carmichael and will be heading south next week, stopping in Sacramento to see family and friends along the way.

Could you post a close up photo of those soft bag racks. A set came with mine but I'm not sure how they attach. It appears that I need a long spacer and screws for the forward fixing point.

Edit: Oops my bad. I looked again and that wasn't either of your bikes. Duh.

Hello Foo

That is a really nice bike. Why do you call it a Barbie Bike?

They acquired that name because it looks like what "Malibu Barbie Doll" might ride.

Kinda' girly colors with Sea Foam Green, Purple, Pink & Yellow. Some love it, some don't.
