Bummer on the delay.  "Deliver parts in a timely manner", ha, that is so subjective.  Using that terminology with my boss or wife does not get me very far... ;).

Of course I have to bring up shoes, do you like the C-Lite 2.0?  I wanted to like them so bad, but on long, hard descents I would lose toenails.  I gave them to Brandon and they seem to work for him.  Maybe had I sized up enough it would have been better (however the 1.0 in the same size works fine for me).

Good erector stick work, I had almost forgotten about your defined calves.  Do they make KTM riding chaps that will allow you to show them off?

Ah well, now that I'm over my initial anger, the anticipation to get the bike and ride is ok. It's nice to have something to look forward to. 

The CLites were my go-to shoe when I was on the LaSportiva team. That pair in the video are my last ones from them. I raced Leadville, Hardrock, San Diego, Grand Mesa, and Bear 100 milers in that shoe. I'm sort of adrift right now and am open to trying out some new shoes.

I'll definitely be wearing shorts to ride this summer but, unfortunately, my MX boots cover up my calves, so the ladies out on the trails will have to miss out.

Cool, the erector selfie stick looks fun with the edging shots (uh, wait, that does not sound good...).  Digging the homage to St. Patricks day too.  I noticed you were wearing a pair of Pearl EM Trail M2, what do you think of them?  I just got a test pair a few weeks ago and love them, for sure one of my top few favorite shoes.

Sorry to hear.  Good thing you were with friends and they had a strap, could have otherwise been a long walk out of there.

Man, you look bored.  Maybe lace up the running shoes?  I am missing the vlogging.

Ha. I run every day but that's not quite as fun as riding. The weather is flipping back to beautiful after today!

You are right, I would love that area, hopefully I'll get a sample of it in 2 weeks (still do not have a concrete plan, but I'll keep you posted).  I was not envious though of the climb Homie was about to do, I would have been running the trails with you instead.

Yeah, that climb Homie was doing is beyond vertical in sections. The other side (the footage of the other climbers getting ready) is easier but still a doozy.

Nice video and good work with the selfie stick edging.  Congrats on not being attacked by that dog too ;).

Thanks. That dog looked a lot like your Sierra!

Oh yeah, and "CounterShaft Crunch" sounds a LOT worse that it actually is ;)

$2,000+ makes it a "crunch" to me! :-)

Glad to hear the movie went well, wish I could have gone.  Glad to hear Ricky Bobby will be back, seems like you do more adventurous stuff with him (for obvious practical reasons).

Yeah, the movie was fun. I rode pretty hard on this ride - remember, this is only 10 mins footage of a 2 hr ride. Nearing the end of the ride, I actually attempted Butterknife, which was far and away the highest level of riding I've attempted - VERY tight single track hacked into the side of a rocky steep hill. After almost hyperventilating and drenched in sweat, I made the decision to turn around before I got to much worse parts. It took me 15 mins to basically pick up and drag the bike to flip it around 180 degrees without dumping it down the side.

Sweet!  Thanks Tim.  My mom will be so proud of me for winning something ;).  Great to see Pippit in the video, he is looking great.  I'll never forget taking him up Bear Peak (maybe his biggest climb?), he and Sierra had a blast.  Or the time he about bit my hand off when I tried to pat him through the window of your van.  For such a little dog, he can muster up a pretty good snarl/snap... ;)

Ha, yeah, that was a big climb for him. We also climbed Green. The poor little guy has lost a lot of teeth, so there's not much chance of him doing any damage with a bite.
